About Lauren Langman, Devon Dogs’ Owner


Lauren Langman is the training expert behind Devon Dogs and Bowerland Cottages. Her concept-focused dog training strategies centre on engaging games. She shows dog owners how to keep training fun and positive, offering rewards to celebrate good behaviour instead of withdrawing from or punishing dogs.

She secured the Bowerland Cottages training site on the television show Relocation Relocation. Now, her expert team offers several training retreats at this site.


Apart from the Naughty But Nice Retreat, these programmes include the Gundog, Games Extravaganza, Fitness and Tricks, Being a Better Dog Trainer, Scent Focused, New Year, Christmas Is Heaven in Devon, Obedience, Heelwork to Music, Adventure, Agility, and Super Spaniel Retreats.
