I share my life with my gorgeous husband and my two fur kids, my beloved rescue Border Collie, Panda and the adorable Cocker Spaniel Fritz. After working within a local rescue organisation and through fostering and adoption, I wanted to help owners to learn how to connect and bond with their companions to ensure a life long partnership. I have a passion for helping owners understand their dogs behaviour and am constantly learning and seeking new ways to improve my knowledge.
While i have been involved with dog training for much of my life, it was Seamus, my lab x who started my journey to become a better dog trainer, when due to a bad experience, he started developing fear towards children at a young age. Thankfully a veterinarian steered me towards positive reinforcement methods such as counter conditioning and started my interest in learning more.
Through the support and advice of other positive trainers, Seamus was able to not only become confident around children, but blossomed to become a performing stunt dog and Delta Therapy Dog as well, along with his best buddy Toby (pictured above). Sadly Toby and Seamus have passed on, but my two beloved furbabies, Maxi (red heeler x bc) and Jack (Border Collie). Jack is deaf and is opening up a whole new world of learning to me which hopefully i can pass on to dog owners.
My aim as a dog trainer is to help dog owners form better bonds with their canine companions by giving owners the skills and knowledge they need.
