We are now offering a wide variety of animal behaviour and training services.
Puppy & Adult training Classes
These are positive, reward based classes grounded in scientific learning theory. Classes will be limited to 6 dogs per class so you get the most out of the trainer. Classes are held by an Animal Behavourist. They focus on bond building and understanding your dog better, as well as developing your dog into a well behaved member of the family. Classes will be held on Thursday evenings 6.30pm for the puppy class and 7.30pm for the adult class at Utterby Village Hall. Please contact us by email or on 01507 607 577 for more information.
Private Training Classes
We are also offering private training classes on a 1-2-1 basis, these can take place at our premises, in your own home, or out on a walk, in the park etc. If you are interested in these please email us or call us on 01507 607 577.
Do you have issues with your dogs behaviour? Now we offer a behavioural consult service where we will discuss in detail the issues that you are having with your dog, what you do when these issues occur and how you would like your dog to behave. We will construct a plan and help you with the training and offer you phone support for a month after your consult. There is also an option of follow up consults where we can see how things are progressing and help you train in more detail if required.
If you are interested in any of these services or if you have problems with your dogs behaviour please email us or call us on 01507 607 577.

We are positive, reward based classes limited to six dogs per class so you get the most out of the trainer. We also offer one to one consults to help with problem behaviour not suitable for a class environment, or if you just prefer to learn this way.

We thought we would put all of the dog we groom on the website as a blog rather than just on Facebook. So everyone can see them not just Facebook friends.
Last week we groomed handsome Bodhi, the cocker spaniel. He was hand stripped, bath and dried. He went home smelly lovely and looking very white.
We also groomed the gorgeous Stanley, a working cocker spaniel. He has clipped off, bathed and dried. He left looking and smelly gorgeous. He a very handsome boy.
The lovely Charlie, the westie came in for a style and bath. We clipped his body leaving a skirt, and scissored his legs and head in a westie style. Doesn’t he look gorgeous and so white.
Poppy is such a sweetie and she came in for a teddy bear trim. We clipped her body, scissored her legs and face and bath and dried her. Doesn’t she look cute.
All styling and bath offers include trimming nails, tidying underpads, ear & eye cleaning and ear plucking. We also throughly brush out removing all knots and matts, blast to get rid off any dead coat, and go over with several brush to minimise shedding.
As a pet owner you can come to dread this time in of year, especially if your pet is easily distressed, nervous of strangers or loud noises. Here at Muddy Paws we have a variety of solutions for you. For mild issues we are now selling karma wraps and pet remedy products. This allows you to help your pet in a natural way, karma wraps apply pressure on areas of the dog to help soothe it. Pet remedy products are all natural products which are clinically proven to help with firework issues and any other stress related issues.
To help your pet make a safe space that they can flee to and feel safe and secure. For cats a box with a cover over it and nice soft blanket or cushion inside, a nice dark safe space. You could spray some pet remedy inside to help alleviate stress. Cats also feel safe when they are up high so you could place this on top of a surface you know they like climbing on. With dogs again provide a safe, dark, comfy place that they can escape to if they are scared. A crate with a blanket over it to make it dark and a nice soft bed or blanket, or perhaps make them a den behind the sofa out of cushions and blankets that they can escape to. Again you could spray some pet remedy inside to help soothe them. If you have a dog with an extreme fear you may want to contact us for a behavioural consult.
