Run by a qualified animal behaviourist, Widget’s Farm combines a special rural daycare facility alongside high quality pet behaviour and training.
Anna has an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour from Lincoln University, and is a member of a number of professional training and behaviour organisations. She also undertakes regular CPD to ensure Widget’s Farm always provides the most up to date science-based training.
Our training approach is to use learning theory to motivate and reward animals for the desired behaviours, and to change their negative view of a situation where one exists. We end up with happy, healthy dogs which learn to cope with stress and make better choices.
Our daycare ethos is one of freedom and choice for our customers. We use our behaviour skills, combined with a beautiful secure rural location, to provide dogs with a space where they can be dogs. For those that are high energy, there is ample space and friends to play with and run about. For those wanting a quieter day, there is always a comfy bed available in a quiet spot. Depending on availability, we can provide pick-ups in the local area.
Widget’s Farm is over 14 acres of lovely countryside with ample secure space for training and daycare. We are fully insured and staff are qualified in first aid. Located on the Somerset / Wiltshire border, we cover Frome, Bath, Trowbridge, Bradford-on-Avon, Shepton Mallet and the surrounding areas.
