Meet The Team

We are a small, family-run business, operating across the south of England and Wales. We strive to share our knowledge and expertise to help our clients create that special bond and understanding with their beloved pets! So, who are we...?

Thomas Longman

Company Director and Head Trainer

My name is Tom and I’ve been training dogs since I was just a youngster involved in the rescue and rehabilitation scene. When I lived in Spain I grew a passion for helping dogs, especially those that had developed behavioural issues from being mistreated or from living on the streets with little or sometimes even zero human interaction. Now it is my life's work to train dogs and their owners, to help develop their bond and create the highest level of understanding between them.

Samantha Longman

Dog Trainer 

I'm Sam and I'm Tom's sister. I've been working with dogs since I was twelve years old. I volunteered at my Aunts rescue centre in Spain for many years and fostered hundreds of stray and neglected dogs in our family home, while overseeing their medical care and mental rehabilitation. 

 

Later, after returning to the UK, I further developed my dog training skills while training the eldest member of our pack - Lulu the border collie. I then discovered the true value of training, when I got my toy poodle  - Noodle, who I trained to a very high standard from eight weeks old.

My goal is to help dog owners create a method of communication between themselves and their dog through training, giving pet parents the ability to bring out the behaviours they want in their dog, and none of the behaviours they don't!

Kailo

2nd in Command and Top Dog

Hello! My name is Kailo (but you can call me 'Kai' for short) and I'm a German Shepherd. I LOVE making new friends, so if you see me out on a walk and I approach you or your dog, don't worry - I'm friendly!! I love taking care of my younger siblings (who you will meet further down the page) and love playing with them too. I love doing protection work with my dad and running and jumping for toys, in fact, the only thing I love more is FOOD!!

Lulu

The Human Whisperer and Dog Mum

Hello, my name is Lulu and I'm a Border Collie. I'm 8 years old and am highly intelligent. I help my dad with the dogs and I help keep them in check. If they're being naughty or too out of control I'll let them know to improve their behaviour sharpish as I don't stand for any nonsense! I love my dad and I love to cuddle up and relax after a hard days work (working with unruly dogs is VERY hard work...). My favourite thing in the world is SOCKS!!

Minnie

The Smallest,
The Cuddliest,
The *Cutest

*Subject to opinion, of course.

Hi! My name is Minnie and I'm a Toy Poodle! My mummy and daddy tell me I was supposed to be a Miniature Poodle but I just didn't grow that big... I'm the baby of the family! (I'm not the actual baby because I have a younger sister BUT I am the baby-est of all of us!) I LOVE cuddles and get SOOOO excited every morning, especially when I see my favourite of all - Lulu!! I LOVE to dance for her every time I see her, I love her so so much!!

Cassie

The friendliest and bounciest!

Hi! My name is Cassie! I'm a Poodle too and I'm only a few months old but I'm bigger than Lulu because I'm a Standard Poodle (A.K.A GIANT Poodle!!) I'm super duper intelligent and I love to learn tricks! I LOVE to play wrestling with Minnie and Kailo - I want to play with Lulu but she scares me a bit.. I love to run around as fast as I possibly can and play chase with Minnie. The only thing I love more than playing with my brother and sister is FOOD!!

Noodle

The Fair "Noot Noot"

Hi! I'm Noodle, the Toy poodle.  I'm Minnie's twin sister and a very spoilt only dog child! As a pup my mum trained me to be an assistance dog, which I loved!  I'm also skilled at agility, fetch, heel work and even some nose work! I'm super intelligent and love training. My favourite thing to do is perform all my tricks in the park and show off my skills! 

My best friends are Minnie and Alfie, and together we form The Teeny Crew!
