Meet Team Vislor - Tamworth
Frankie - Vislor Dog Trainer
Frankie has always had a love for dogs. She has extensive experience helping the family with various breeds, from Chihuahuas to Bulldogs to German Shepherds.
She started working with Vislor approximately two years ago with her German Shepherd, Stella. Vislor Head Trainer Travis Foster spotted her natural talent for dog training and decided her no-nonsense, capable attitude would be a great asset to our team.
Having worked closely with Travis, Frankie has developed significantly as a dog trainer, mastering the crucial fundamentals such as the Following State of Mind principle, marker training and even some stunt tricks.
She is currently doing scent work with her dog Stella, who is doing amazingly well. Stella can sniff out anything from a Kong to a set of keys! As an active participant in Vislor's reactive dog classes, she has nurtured a keen awareness of dog body language.
A recent addition to the family is Molly, a Golden Retriever who will follow in Stella's footsteps. There is nothing Frankie loves more than training dogs & watching them live happy and enriched lives.
Frankie will be concentrating on one-to-one dog training lessons, puppy training lessons and puppy residential training. Residential puppies will stay within a family environment with her children, Stella, Molly and Peggy the cat.

Tamworth Training Reviews
Paul Adams & Snowy (Pomeranian)
We used Frankie for our puppy training.We booked the 3 week package. We missed our puppy who was only about 4 months old. What a great improvement.
He used to chase our cats for fun now he mostly ignores them. He hated being brushed now he lets you brush him. He listens to you. He understands that no means no. He walks properly and he understands that you are the boss not him.
Frankie did a great job. Your puppy/dog will still love you after training, he will respect you. You will not have to keep shouting at your puppy/dog after her training.
You only have to put into practice what you are told
Perrine and Dusty (Golden Retriever)
I had one session with Frankie for my golden retriever Dusty, who already went on residential training 7 months ago.
Frankie provided useful advice on how to go further and deal better with Dusty's pulling and reactivity on walks. I can already see some improvements and know that we are heading the right way.
My other retriever Kira is highly reactive to other dogs, which is a real problem during walks. Frankie gave me the tools and advice I needed to break the reactivity cycle and deal effectively with the problem.
Kira is already making a lot of progress and I am confident on her future improvements thanks to Frankie.
I highly recommend Frankie.
Susan Nuttall & Woody (Golden Retriever)
I would 100% recommend Frankie to sort out any issues you may have with your dog.
She is clearly passionate about her work. The difference in Woody's behaviour in such a short space of time is remarkable.
Thank you so much!
Susan Allsopp & Ruby (Rottweiler)
Frankie gave me the tools and her expertise in how to deal with my reactive rottie Ruby.
I had totally lost my confidence in taking her out on walks and dreaded passing another dog. Thanks to Frankie walks are now calmer and I I feel that I am in charge of Ruby rather than her pulling and reacting.
Highly recommend Vislor and Frankie
Usha Baggott & Pedro (Maltichon)
When we took our lively Romanian rescue dog Pedro to Frankie at Vislor in Tamworth for residential training, we were at our wits’ end.
We adore our boy, but found it impossible to get him to listen to us at all and even simple commands weren’t working.
We were hoping for some improvements, but have been amazed by the transformation in him under Frankie’s firm, caring training. He’s a different dog and we couldn’t be happier.
The brilliant thing is the post training support that we’ve had - we’ve been able to deal with Pedro testing the boundaries on home territory with Frankie always there for advice.
I highly recommend Vislor - Frankie is a miracle worker!
Charlotte Miller & Loki (German Shepherd)
After one session we saw improvements with our pup Loki. He was a nightmare for pulling on the lead, reactive to other dogs and people and wouldn't listen to us.
He now walks lovely on his lead and acts like a gentleman at the door for visitors. We're not near done, but the progress we've seen in such a short time has been lovely!
Leanne O & Lennon (Golden Retriever)
I had a big trip to the USA planned, but needed someone to look after my 12 week old golden retriever. I was so worried about leaving him at such a young age for 2 weeks given that we had made huge progress with his toilet training and tricks.
I decided to look for a residential training option with the aim to have my puppy looked after and trained every day to ensure when I came back, my puppy had not regressed and had hopefully learnt a few more things in my absence.
Frankie took my puppy Lennon in and she has done a fantastic job at training him. She sent me regular updates of him, and she trained him every day to help with better walking, marker and clicker training.
Lennon has come back from his residential stay with Frankie a more clever boy, and i was really worried he didn’t want to come home with me as he fitted in perfectly with Frankies family and her other 2 dogs Stella and Molly.
This experience has been brilliant for lennon, I would highly recommend Frankie - I relaxed while I was away knowing that Lennon was in the best care possible.>
Thank you so much Frankie! :)
Karen Bailey & Sheba (German Shepherd)
I contacted Vislor , speaking to Lorraine , who was very helpful and friendly to ask about Vislor Training. Frankie came to my house and we discussed my dog - character, behaviour , previous training.
Frankie was very thorough and also fully explained the training used by Vislor. Ensuring I was happy with everything. We went on a walk so we could try the method with my dog and gained a postive result really quickly. Slack lead rather than tight.
We'll continue to practice and have help from Frankie.
Pauls Lippitt & Ruby (Labrador)
Frankie was really helpful with a Labrador, Ruby, who really pulls on the lead or harness. After mere minutes she was walking to heel and the walk was so enjoyable. Frankie gave us tips throughout the session on how to correct her behaviour and gave us a plan for the next week to practice.
Already Ruby is relaxed on walks and we are excited about walking her rather than dreading the walk. This means that with our babies, the pushchair or even friends walking her; we know we will have confidence that she won't pull.
