Donna Saunders  IMDT, C&G ~ Owner of In The Doghouse DTC


Donna runs the Pet Lodge and is a bit of a dog nut!!

Besides having 5 of her own furkids, she is a Qualified Groomer, Certified Pet Dog Trainer and has a keen interest in Nutrition.  Her training passion is Trick Dog fun & runs the Doghouse Trick Dog Titles Certification.

Canine Conditioning is something she is now also very interested in and working towards her Certified Canine Fitness Trainer accreditation.

A Full Member of the IMDT means everything done here at In The Doghouse is done with love, care, attention, and most importantly absolutely Force Free which means the animals that come for their holidays have a fabulous time.

She ensures all are cared for without losing any of the love and personal touches the dogs receive at home.





Head Trainer for Doghouse, certified pet dog trainer, clicker trainer, trick dog instructor, nosework instructor, security dog handler and assessor for the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.

Nando’s interest lies with Scent Detection, Search & Rescue, Frisbee, Trick dog training and Rally, but his passion is dog behaviour and he is keen to help any dog that has a chance.

Previously studied under Jean Donaldson and the Academy of Dog Trainers,   Dr. Ian Dunbar, Sarah Whitehead, The Animal Care College, Drove Veterinary Hospital, Steve Mann, The Institute & Members of the Dog Borstal team.

Having originally had a “problem dog”, Nando realised that there hadn’t been just 1 person to solve his problems and set about trying to change that…….subsequently In The Doghouse was born.
