Specialised Training and Behaviour for Dachshunds


I am Katie Saywell, the UK leading Dachshund trainer, based in the East Midlands. Owner of a miniature black and tan smooth called Chipolata, who like all dachshunds is super smart, loyal and loving but we haven't always had an easy time, Chipolata is one of the reasons we want to help other dachshund owners. 


I am the UK leading Dachshund trainer and the owner and founder of The Dogs Code.


A police officer of 10 years, I hold a National Diploma in Animal Care, a Diploma in Animal Psychology and I'm a certified instructor and continue professional development with IMDT (The Institute of Modern Dog Training) also a member of Pet Professional Network and ICAN. My love (obsession) of dachshunds lead to my business in dog training and behaviour specifically designed for them.
