My Services

The DogSmith training programs enhance and improve the relationship you share with your family pet. Our methods are grounded in science, lots of fun to use and do not need pain, fear or intimidation. At the DogSmith we believe that training should be fun, educational and it must enhance the relationships we have with our pets.

Our pet care program is specifically designed to give you the peace of mind that comes from having the best of all worlds. If you are leaving town for a few days or just a few hours your DogSmith can help you. If you have extended hours at work or miss the chance to get home at lunchtime, then we have just the service for you.

About Louise Stapleton-Frappell

DogSmith of Estepona
The owner and head trainer of The DogSmith of Estepona, Louise Stapleton-Frappell, studied for her Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree at the University of Leeds and, after leaving University, took her first teaching post at a school in Cartagena. This was soon followed by a move to Southern Spain where she quickly added a beautiful German Shepherd x Doberman, Bess, to the family and thus began her love of teaching dogs as well as people.  A local veterinarian put her in touch with a respected police dog trainer who passed on his knowledge and shared his love of the beautiful canines he worked with.

A gorgeous Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Samson, was soon added to the family; followed by Tessa, a much-loved German Shepherd Dog, and Jambo, who, at the age of just 16 months, became the first Staffordshire Bull Terrier to become a Trick Dog Champion. Jambo has since been aired on Talent Hounds TV in Canada and was also featured as a Victoria Stilwell Positively Story.
