Penney Shephard

Penny has worked with dogs and horses all her life. She shares her home with several Sighthounds which are all rescues, as all her dogs have been. The majority of dogs that have been part of Penny’s life have needed significant support; all settled and grew in confidence using a combination of quiet and reward based approaches.

Penny has worked in showing and breeding kennels as well as rescue, and has fostered very nervous rescue dogs over the years. Penny is the guardian of two retired ponies and used to work with show jumpers, dressage and driving ponies. 

Penny is based in Hertfordshire and runs her own weekly dog training classes as well as helping run two classes for another dog training club. She is a TTouch Practitioner and ACE Associate Tutor and uses and teaches ACE and TTouch techniques in all her classes.
