I got started by getting heaps of hands-on experience in one of the biggest animal rescue centres in the UK, Woodgreen, before working in a number of training schools teaching people how to train their own dogs. Hooked on training, I got the academic qualifications to back up my practical knowledge .
The combination of a deep understanding of how animals think and learn, coupled with many years of solid practical experience teaching dogs and people, means that I can 'walk the walk' not just 'talk the talk' - a problem with many 'book taught' trainers these days!
With my own dogs I've competed successfully in my passion, Competitive Obedience (including achieving an Obedience Grand Champion title), Rally-O and Agility.
Whether you're a complete beginner or not, I can help you have a well behaved companion (or sports dog!); and the sort of relationship and connection you’ve always dreamed of. Let me set you and your dog on the road to becoming an amazing team.
