About Us

Star Paws is a family run business with over 20 years experience in the dog world, we cater for all dogs and all our services are tailored to suit the individual needs of the owners and their dogs. We currently operate in the south of Essex with our training classes based in and around the Rayleigh area, and workshops being booked across London and Essex.

We specialise mainly in clicker training and strongly promote positive, reward based methods for training your dogs. Our classes run in six week courses for pet obedience, clicker training, heelwork to music, and rally-obedience. We also run one day workshops in clicker training, heelwork to music, and rally-obedience, these workshops are also available for other dog clubs to book.

We are fully insured with Cliverton and are CRB cleared.

Laura has always had dogs in her life and has competed with dogs for 15 years in a number of sports from showing to agility and heelwork to music. With her own dogs she has won out into Intermediate in both agility and heelwork to music and has previously been asked to do displays at both Discover Dogs and Crufts.

Other qualifications and courses that Laura has attended include a professional dog grooming qualification and a canine first aid course. She is also currently studying a course in canine massage.
