Hello, I’m Vicky Mansfield, the owner of Paws on Board, I offer professional, fun, science-based dog training services throughout Bournemouth, Poole and surrounding areas.

Who are we?
Paws on Board was founded by Vicky Mansfield.
Based in Dorset and covering Bournemouth and Poole in the main, I prefer to keep a local focus, which means more time to spend with your dog/s and less travel time for your four-legged friend.
1-2-1 dog training
Paws on Board offers professional 1-2-1 dog training.
Whether your dog barks and lunges at any opportunity, has separation anxiety or counter surfs in the kitchen, I am on hand to help teach you and your dog the skills needed to create the dog you desire in a fear free and intellectually stimulating manner.
As a member of several amazing dog training institutes, I have had the pleasure of learning from the best
- Pro Dog Trainer – Absolute Dogs
- School of Canine Science
- Dog Training College
- Victoria Stilwell Academy
- Dr Dunbar’s Dog Behaviour and Training Academy
My learning continues as I am a member of the ISCP and ICAN and in an industry where learning always progresses and never stops, I will relentlessly keep up to date with all science based, fear free methods to ensure your dog has the best life.
Dog training classes
Paws on Board offers professional, enjoyable dog training classes.
From puppy skills (New Pup’s on the Block) to Adorable Adolescents, or fitness and flexibility (Fit Furries) your dog would sniff these classes out for their own entertainment.
Allowing your dog to focus without too many distractions is key to dog training classes – for that reason I only invite up to 6 people to join each class.
Paws on Board offers the only dog surfing lessons in the area.
Whether its water confidence, balance or behaviour on a board that you want to improve, these specialised classes are your gold dust. Packed with knowledge, confidence boosting and fun, these unique classes are a superb way to bond with your canine friend and create a shared hobby for life!
