Hi, I thought it would be a good idea to tell you a little about myself.

I am experienced in many aspects of dog training and behaviour including puppy development and how dog learn, teaching adult dogs and the use of play to aid learning. If you would like to see a full list of my formal qualification and courses undertaken please view qualifications.

I’m in my 40’s, young enough to enjoy life and old enough to know better!   I have been a veterinary nurse since leaving school and still love it. I have worked in a wide variety of veterinary practices including animal charities and referral hospitals. My interest in dog training stemmed from helping friends train their dogs. I soon realised this was an area that I wanted to become involved in and develop my knowledge and experience further.

I share my life with Maddie, Evie and Ziggy. Maddie prefers a more sedate lifestyle these days unless food is on offer! She enjoys accompanying me to classes and loves to join in when she can. Evie loves nothing more than playing with her ball on a rope. Ziggy is the newest addition to the household and certainly has a unique outlook on life!
