I am passionate about dogs and dog training and my aim as a trainer is to provide clients with the knowledge and practical skills needed to have a happy and successful life with their dog. I first became qualified as a dog trainer in 2002, however I have worked with people and their dogs since 1983, looking after peoples pets in my boarding kennels so I have years of experience with all types and breeds of dog. I am an accredited and qualified trainer, being a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers which means I have undergone a rigorous assessment process to meet the high standards expected of an IMDT member and abide by a strict code of ethics to ensure both Owners and Dogs training needs are met in a positive and effective way. I continue to regularly attend workshops, seminars, talks and training courses to expand my skill set and keep my knowledge current. You can find out more about my academic qualifications and courses I have attended under the ‘about me’ section. All the content of my training classes has been developed through years of knowledge and experience and all training methods are reward based, which is positive, kind and highly effective.
