Puppy and Dog Training
Learn & Play with Cwtches Dog
Cwtches Dog is an independently owned canine service, offering Pet Dog Training, and Behaviour Consultations in London and online.
Georgi is an IMDT Qualified Trainer using Force-Free methods to build positive, long lasting relationship for you and your dog.
What is this crazy word?
Pronounced cw-t-shh (kutch) it rhymes with butch. A cwtch is welsh for cuddle. It’s not just any kind of cuddle though, it’s one with true sincerity and filled with love. The saying goes ‘anyone can cuddle, but only the Welsh can cwtch’.
Originally from South Wales, Georgi moved to London for work in her previous life working in Social Care and the NHS, and she fell in love with everything London had to offer.
Cwtches Dog, initially founded as a Dog Walking business was born from a love of all things dog, a need for a service that couldn’t be found, and a redundancy! In her time employing the services of dog walkers it was reported that Ted & Alf aka The Beags, were too challenging for group walks, and after a string of walkers she set about planning a dog walking service like no other; tailored specifically for high-energy working breeds! With huge success and a full order book, Georgi spotted a further need for quality dog training and began her education journey within the world of Positive Reinforcement, Force-Free Training. Georgi has since qualified as a dog trainer with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT), is a certified SA Pro Separation Anxiety Trainer, and is also a Level 5 HND/foundation degree Behaviourist. She uses only the most up to date, science-backed, force-free methods. Georgi is passionate about training with kindness and teaching all her clients to speak dog.
Though injury forced the closure of the dog walking element of the business, Cwtches Dog continues to thrive with the passion of educating owners and their dogs to the learning methods that capture the positive elements.

Does your furry companion struggle being home alone? Do they howl the house down, bark continuously, or become anxious and destructive?
Separation Anxiety is an anxiety disorder which causes your dog to experience panic when alone or separated from their guardian.

Clive & Edna
Georgi is a great trainer - for both the dog and the human! She tailors her training to both you and the dog and all the advice she gives is practical not unachievable. Her training also gives you the tools to take away and use in different situations
Mary & Rocky
Georgi is amazing. We highly recommend her. We contacted her early on after we got our puppy Rocky as keen on her style of training. She helped us with our puppy training but also helped relieve our concerns with sleep and settling him into our family life (we have two young children). It's been reassuring to know we are able to contact Georgi if we need her help in the future and wouldn't hesitate to contact her!
Jessica & Scout
Georgi is fabulous. Bubbly, engaging, and knows dogs. She's always on hand via WhatsApp for questions and has loads of tips in her private Facebook group. Our dog has really grown under Cwtches teaching and our lives have become a lot less stressful as a result. Thank you!
