I am a positive one-to-one dog trainer covering NG16 and surrounding areas. My aim for my clients is to improve the relationship between dogs and their humans and enable them to achieve their training goals together.
I have twelve years of practical experience working with dogs, both in a rescue environment and extensively with a socialisation focus at Naptha Boarding, mixing large and small groups of dogs of all breeds and ages and studying their behaviour.
My qualification in canine behaviour is from the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, and I am also qualified in animal care. I hold a current canine first aid certificate, which will always be kept up to date.
I am a visiting volunteer handler for Therapy Dogs Nationwide with my therapy dog, Siberian Husky Gizmo and have in the past also volunteered in the same capacity for Pets As Therapy.
I am now qualified as the temperament assessor for Therapy Dogs Nationwide for the East Midlands, and assess prospective volunteers and their dogs for the charity.
My future plans include keeping up to date with canine behaviour and training via courses and seminars through the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and other force-free organisations.
