Dogs

Janina Tainio Dn-CPCT, Dn-FSG
Certified Pet Care Technician, Certified Fun Scent Games Instructor & Assistant Trainer. 

As an advocate of a positive, fear-free approach to pet care and training and part of the outstanding DogSmith of Estepona team, I’m helping dogs be the best companions possible.  All the canine clients I work with get the same love, personal attention and extraordinary professional expertise that I give my own dogs – two Beagles, Minni and Iines.

My pet care technician certification involved rigorous academic and practical training in dog communication, pet first aid, and tools, equipment and toys.  Never one to rest on my laurel’s, I’m continuing to improve and maintain my professional expertise through a series of continuing education programmes and practical hands-on experience. The owner of The DogSmith of Estepona, Louise Stapleton-Frappell is personally mentoring me and I’m more than happy to work with her and help ensure that all pets get the training and care they deserve!

Come join the fun and get the solutions you need at the DogSmith of Estepona! We look forward to helping your pets become family!


Our mission is to help make every pet a valued member of its family and improve the relationship and the quality of life people share with their pets.
