Online Holistic  Teaching For Your   Puppy Or Dog.

Welcome to FITdogs Club, where I offer a holistic approach to nurturing your puppy's and dog's development and strengthening your bond. Through my online platform, you can join weekly puppy and dog courses as well as follow-on classes from the comfort of your own home.

Utilising a pioneering approach, founded by Kathie Gregory, called Free Will Teaching, which emphasizes understanding your puppy's and dog's perspective, emotions, and ability to make choices.


I believe in teaching rather than training, guiding puppies and dogs to become self-aware individuals through conversational language.

At FITdogs Club, I prioritize kindness, compassion, and empathy in my teaching methods. I foster understanding and focus on your puppy's or dog's wellbeing and joy for life, without resorting to negative techniques.

I understand the responsibility that comes with bringing a puppy or dog into your life. That's why I emphasize responsible pet ownership, ensuring the safety and happiness of both your puppy or dog and the community.

Join a community of like-minded individuals and embark on a journey of mutual learning and growth with your puppy or dog.



Free Will Teaching

Welcome to Free Will Teaching, where we recognize that both puppies and dogs are intelligent beings deserving of understanding, respect, and companionship. Founded by Kathie Gregory, Free Will Teaching is built on the principle that puppies and dogs possess self-awareness and cognitive abilities that are often underestimated.


At Free Will Teaching, we don't train puppies and dogs — we teach them. We view life as a journey, and our approach to teaching reflects this philosophy. Instead of focusing on specific commands or behaviours, we engage in ongoing conversations with your puppy or dog, helping them to become self-aware and empowering them to make true choices.


Central to our methodology is the recognition that your puppy or dog is a cherished member of your family. We approach teaching with kindness, compassion, and empathy, eschewing negative methods in favour of nurturing understanding and fostering your puppy or dog’s innate joy for life.

Through gentle guidance, we strive to build a deep connection and mutual understanding between you and your canine companion. We aim to build a harmonious relationship based on trust, respect, and shared experiences.

Join us at Free Will Teaching and embark on a journey of discovery and companionship with your puppy or dog, where every interaction is an opportunity for growth, understanding, and love.
