Dogs have always been a major part of my life and I have been training and working with them for over 35 years. My passion started not just at home when I was young but also when I worked during the school holidays at my local kennels near to where I lived, I spent many a happy weekend helping out and working there. I believe my knowledge is as extensive as my experience with dogs.

In my 20’s I trained and worked in London as a nurse and then moved to Cambridge to nurse at Addenbrookes Hospital before moving up to the north of England to start a family. 

I went on to set up a large boarding kennel establishment and training centre in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire. Through that experience I then decided to set up a small intimate Home from Home active holiday and boarding kennel business in Cumbria where I lived for around 25 years. In late 2019 I relocated my business to South Devon to be nearer my family, and where I currently work from.

At the same time I also set up the training school and so was able to continue my passion of not just looking after other peoples’ dogs but  training and behavioural work as well.

‘Training the Ingrid Grayling Way’ has been developed over the many years I have spent with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. I have endless enthusiasm, passion and a huge love of dogs, which I hope shines through when you meet me.

Currently I am putting my extensive knowledge to paper and writing a training manual for dog owners. I am very excited about this and it should be launching in 2023. I  also run Train the Trainer courses, where I train future potential dog trainers.
