about us

Nutter Dogs first started in 2017, offering basic dog and puppy training classes. We went full time in April 2018, offering dog walking services and expanding the classes offered. We added dog sport classes such as agility in 2019.

Nutter Dogs is run by Sophie Smith. She is a qualified Institute of Modern Dog Training (IMDT) trainer and an accredited Canine Hoopers World Instructor (CHWI). She is currently studying the Behaviour Bible with the School of Canine Science. She is also a Sporty Paws ambassador, helping to spread the word about running with their dogs, and Tug-E-Nuff, helping owners to find the right motivational tools for their dogs.

In 2021 the Nutter Dogs team grew for the first time, and Jess Kelly joined the team as a dog walker.

Sophie is the Founder and Dog Trainer at Nutter Dogs.

She is an avid agility enthusiast, who regularly competes and judges across the country. She is a self professed dog nerd; and she can’t wait to share her passion for dogs with you!

Jess is the Dog Walker at Nutter Dogs.

She ran the hugely successful Kellys K9s for over four years, and has missed the dog walker life so much since she stopped to pursue other projects. She is so excited to return; she loves time outdoors with dogs more than anything else, and can’t wait to spend that time with your dog!

All members of the Nutter Dogs team are DBS checked, insured, first aid trained, and experienced with a variety of different dogs in all shapes and sizes. We are so excited to work with you!
