Spaniel dog happy friend


Here to improve the lives of dogs and their owners.

Hi, I'm Cat the  founder of Celtic Canines.  The gorgeous girly smooching me in the photo is Maggie my mischievious, loving Springer Spaniel and my best friend.


Celtic Canines is here to help owners and their dogs live their best lives together whether that be through providing fun doggy adventures with their friends when you can't be with them yourself, or through training and behavioural support when you hit those bumps in the road that we all experience on occasion.  We mainly cover the Lothians and Borders, although can help you wherever you are with training and behavioural advice through our video consultation services.

As an Assessed and Qualified Member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers I am proud to display the UK Dog Behaviour and Training Charter symbol showing that Celtic Canines is committed to providing the highest standards of ethical dog training.  I also have a BSc (Hons) in Animal Care and a background in Veterinary Nursing so you can be sure that your dogs are in safe, knowledgeable hands.  As science is constantly learning more about dog behaviour and psychology I attend regular seminars and workshops to provide you with the most up to date effective and ethically robust training practice.

What we believe in:

  • Kindness

  • Understanding

  • Communication

  • Connection

  • Choice

  • Support

  • Importance of bond

  • Up to date science backed practice

We promise to never use:

  • Fear

  • Intimidation

  • Punishment

I am fully insured with PBI, Disclosure Scotland checked and council registered.
