-DA FIORETTI- FOREST SCHOOL FOR DOGS  was founded when I met my black lab, Coco. She was alert, nervous and very shy but full of energy that required solid leadership and an understanding of her needs. 

I trained in the U.S. to master dog psychology and worked in Spain with rescued dogs that were very sensitive and insecure. I have attended multiple dog behavior and obedience courses in order to help more dogs. Now I am working with dogs in and around Monmouth and Ross on Wye and in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley area.

 I am a member of the IACP ( International Association of Canine Professionals), qualified in canine first aid and fully insured.

I strongly believe that it is essential to learn from others as well as from one's own experience. I am very grateful to the following people who have shared their knowledge with me:
