Point Dog Training

Move in a positive direction


About Us

About Us
Welcome to Point Dog Training.

Our goal is to help dogs and their owners learn new skills in a positive way.

We enable you to learn the best ways to engage your dogs using only kind, modern methods of training, to ensure you build strong bonds and to give your dog confidence, life skills and the chance to make choices.

As a student member of the APDT, we are always continuing our personal and professional development through study, hands on experience with dogs and attending seminars and conferences.

The Team

The Team
Point Dog Training is run by Annie Dowell-Caffrey.

“I have worked with dogs professionally for 8 years, previously running my own Boarding Kennels and more recently working for a charitable organisation. I also have experience in a veterinary practice, have a dog grooming qualification and have worked and volunteered for dog rescues in the UK and abroad.

My ambition is to learn more and more about dogs, their behaviour and the way they communicate, in order to understand their needs better. I love nothing more than being able to help owners develop a close bond with their dog, watch as they learn new skills together and most importantly, enrich each other’s lives.

I am a student member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, as well as studying the Foundations of Canine Behaviour Management with Compass Education. I have volunteered with an established training class before as well as attending several seminars and conferences about dog training and behaviour.

I live in Derbyshire with my husband and we share our home with a multitude of animals! Our family is completed with Coco the Labrador cross, Avispa the German Shepherd cross, and Flora the Chihuahua (all rescues).”
