Trainer & Walker
Furry Frolics founder, Ellie Turner, is a true animal enthusiast whose passion is in developing bonds between humans and their canine companions through positive training.
Although much of her focus is now on one-to-one and group training, Ellie also still enjoys getting stuck into the day to day dog walking.
She says "I love helping people train their dogs to be the companions they always dreamed of, but I don't think I'll ever give up the dog walking. It gives me a daily insight to handling lots of different pet dogs with differing breeds, needs & personalities- and that's invaluable experience when relating to training clients. Also, I just love the dogs too much!"
Ellie is a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, The Pet Professional Guild, and NarpsUK, and is Pet First Aid certified. She holds 2 x OCN Level II qualifications in Dog Training & Behaviour and is currently studying for a Diploma in Canine Behaviour with the International School of Canine Psychology.
Kim joined the team in 2016 as a training assistant after training her dog Bella and getting "the bug". As well as assisting at classes, Kim is also an invaluable member of the team behind the scenes and is responsible for kit & merchandise She also runs affiliated business Ragz'n'Tugz selling the best in handmade dog gear!
Kim says, "When I first got Bella I knew next to nothing about training, but from shadowing Ellie and studying alongside it, I have fallen in love with dogs even more, and I really enjoy helping people interact and have fun with their dogs"
Alongside her practical experience Kim is also qualified in Canine First Aid, is studying the science of dog training and is actively participating in CPD.
