Louise - Founder & Trainer

Canine Friends was founded by Louise in 2018 with the view of providing the best in dog services in West Sussex.

She is a proud member and registered Canine Training Professional of the Pet Professional Guild - the association of force free pet professionals. She holds qualifications in canine coaching, dog walking, pet sitting & canine first aid.
