Welcome to Put Your Paws Up. My name is Jeanna Gwilliam and I have been training dogs for over ten years.

I Qualified to become a Primary School Teacher at University but soon realised it was not for me and became an Admin Assistant covering roles from Head of Commissions in Life and Pensions to a Senior Estimator for Underfloor Heating.

During this time, I got my first “all mine” dog, Jinty, and became addicted to training.

Prior to Jinty, I spent alot of time around my Grandparents Gundogs and had a family dog, Minka, that stayed home when I left for Univerity. Minka passed away in 2018. Minka was a rescue with many issues who taught me alot about nervous dogs.

In nearly ten years of dog ownership, I have trained and competed in many Dog Sports:

  • BFA Flyball
  • KC Obedience
  • BCOS Obedience
  • KC Agility
  • UKA Agility
  • Dock Diving

I have also attended and trained up to Talking Dog Scentwork level 3, and done basic training in HTM and Gundog Training.

Jinty joined me in 2011. Since then, I have had eight dogs, and sadly lost one. I currently have seven dogs in the home.

I regularly attend Seminars and Workshops to keep my skills sharp. I believe in the power of positive reinforcement, training using a clicker and motivation. My Training Idols include Emily Larlham and Ken Remirez.

Put Your Paws Up started its journey in 2016. Offering Dog Training, Walking and House Sitting. I no longer offer Walking and only House Sit for current clients due to my work committments.

In 2015, was invited to a photoshoot for a magazine, and the photographer asked if I had ever considered doing media work as my dogs were so well trained. My dogs quickly started work. The rest they say, is history!

I now focus on Dog Training for Media work, as well as Trick Training.

I still compete in Obedience and Agility.

My greatest Acheivements include GCDS Special Preginner Winner at Crufts, Preginner Obedience Champion and TOP PUPPY IN BREED.

The best part of my job is meeting lots of wonderful dogs (and cats!).
