About Canine Company

Hello, I'm Elise and here is my story. 

Throughout my life I have owned nervous and reactive dogs but it was my current dog, Mylo Anubis who set me on my path to becoming a dog specialist. He was like a wild beast when I rescued him and I was determined to understand and train him. Like many owners, I made mistakes along the way but today Mylo is a much calmer and happy dog and our bond is so strong it amazes me. Through training Mylo, I was saved, he made me realise my dream of working with dogs. I quit my job as a teacher and have never looked back. 


I know how you must feel about your dog, as I have felt it too. I was scared to let Mylo off the lead for the first time, I felt alone and isolated, feeling like a bad owner as I couldn't control my dog. I was frustrated that he wasn't learning quick enough or had no friends. With all my heart I love him and would have put up with poor behaviour just because he is family. But I was determined to improve his quality of life, and mine! This is why I set up Canine Company. My goal is to improve the life you have with your dog. Creating a powerful bond, mutual respect and understanding is at the centre of everything I do. I am passionate about building confidence in dogs and owners so that they can continue to enrich each others lives. As it should be!


You do not have to suffer with your dog, pulling your arms off on walks, chewing the furniture or jumping up. Despite how you feel, you are not alone. Help is here and we specialise in providing a confidence building program to get your dog back on track. 


To learn more about my story, why not buy my book "Waggy Tails - An Adventure into Dog Walking." It details the struggles I had as a novice owner and the many hilarious escapades I have had as a professional dog walker. Available now on Amazon.

What Our Customers Say


Elise & all the other staff we have met are just so lovely, friendly and professional. They are so passionate about dogs health and well-being and making sure they make the best doggy friends in their care. Would highly recommend, it has really helped socialise our pup in the best environment as I was really keen to make sure he knew how to play and interact with other dog when on walks etc.

We struggled to find the right fit for our 2 year old collie. A local dogwalker recommended Canine Company and from the moment we met Elise we knew this was the right place. Our pup goes to play with his friends twice a week and is loving it. Not only is this evident in the pictures we see each day he is there, but also in his behaviour. Speaking of, the advice and tips we have been given have been invaluable in helping with his lead walking and recall. In a nutshell, an amazing place. So glad we found you, Canine Company!

Molly our 18 month Labradoodle has been going for a run and play with her doggy friends since she was young. Elise and John are fantastic with her as she is an anxious dog at times but she loves them. I go to work knowing she will have a great time and this is so much better than her being alone all day. I love looking on Facebook to see what Molly has been up to each time she goes and she’s been on a few treks and the photos were amazing. I thought she had a better day than me at work.

Went to their open air training, really enjoyable for both me and my dog. Relaxed atmosphere and the dog’s best was good enough. Each class felt like a celebration of dogs and not a military parade ground! Thank you

Our working cocker spaniel, Oti, has loved her weekly walks with canine company. Its great to see the video at the end of the day and see her having the best time! They have been great in their communication with me and I fully trust them with my dog. They really care about and know the dogs they look after. I would 100% go to them for any advice as well, they really know their stuff!

Couldn’t ask for a more friendly, trusting dog walking service! My dog Ralph has been walking with Canine Company for nearly a year now and due to my shift pattern they always fit Ralph in! I wouldn’t use anybody else!

Charlie is always exhausted after his walks. He absolutely loves going with John, Eli and the rest of the gang. Always prompt, trustworthy and dogs are put first especially in this recent hot weather.

We're so glad we starting using Elise and John's walking service. They take our (sweet but quite mad) terrier, Dilly, out twice a week and she comes back exhausted and so happy. She gets great doggy socialising time and running about time, and we know we can trust Elise and John to take good care of her and all the other dogs. It's also a very good sign that Dilly actively tries to get into their garden to cuddle them every time we take her past their house, so clearly she's a fan too!

Digby our Labrador has been having energetic & fun walks with Elise & John now since January. They are very trustworthy / reliable people & when you talk to both of them it is clear how much they care about each & every dog they walk. Digby loves playing /walking with others dogs, which comes across in the photos they put of every walk on Facebook. I would highly recommend them if you want a happy & tired dog when you get home from work.

My dog Albie has being going on walks with Eli and John for just under a year now, they take incredibly good care of him and he always comes back tired and happy. Eli and John are extremely professional and dedicated and have been very accommodating and flexible at short notice. I feel happy and confident leaving Albie with them both knowing he is in safe hands and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their brilliant company to others.
