My aim is to help people teach their puppies and dogs to be well behaved, have good manners and the confidence needed for everyday life. I actively encourage children of all ages to be involved in the training which is designed to be a fun activity for the whole family!
As a Primary School Teacher I spent many years in both rural and inner city schools teaching mixed ability children.
Leaving teaching to gain experience in Industry I enjoyed a successful career in Contract Management and Customer Service but realised that I needed to change direction and pursue a career which combined my two passions – the love of dogs and teaching.
I have successfully completed courses on dog behaviour and training, all accredited by the Open College Network and tutored by Sarah Whitehead who is an international lecturer and pet behaviour counsellor.
Over the past 8 years I have attended many of Sarah’s Masterclasses and gained a huge amount of practical experience assisting and then instructing puppy and beginner classes at the RSPCA centre in Surrey. In September 2016 I was proud to be invited to become one of Sarah’s Clever Dog Company licensed trainers.
