Venture Dogs

My name is Ciara Pollen, and I'm a professional behaviourist and dog trainer based in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire.

My goal in creating Venture Dogs is to help you grow from dog-owner to canine expert. Each dog is an individual, and my approach is tailored not just to your dog, but also to the needs of you and your family. Investing in dog training will help you create a calm, happy, and well-behaved dog, all using the most effective and kind dog training techniques.

My focus is on helping you learn dog training techniques, understand dog behaviour, and apply that knowledge long after our sessions end. Scroll down to learn more about starting your dog training journey.

I have found that many dog owners have the same issues and worries about their pets. They may struggle with loose-lead walking, have a dog who barks at other dogs on walks, or worry about leaving them home alone. Whatever the issue is that you have, I can guarantee that you're not the only one - even though it may seem that way.

I want to make dog behaviour and training accessible and easy to understand for everyone, whether you're reading along here or we have the chance to speak in person.

I want to provide people with jargon-free and simple advice to make life with their dog more fun and worry-free.

I want to get you connecting with your dog again.

I have a Masters in Zoology from Bristol University, where I did my dissertation on play between pet dogs and their owners. I also have over 5 years of practical experience working with dogs, from training classes and pet-sitting to rehoming centres and boarding kennels. This gives me a well-rounded balance of knowledge and experience to help improve your dog's life - and your own.

I believe that everyone - dog and human alike - can learn and make progress no matter their age or previous experience. I am dedicated to helping you do just that.
