Home > About Me
Many of my best childhood memories include dogs. For as long as I can remember spending time with them has brought me so much happiness – there is just something about how much joy they find in the most simple of things.
During my childhood and career to date I have always known I wanted to work with animals. At one point I decided I wanted to be a vet, but life had different plans for me. Discovering that it was the work with dogs that provided me true joy and fulfilment, I decided to make dog training and behaviour my full time career.
I started out by helping a local dog walker, as I knew that this would give me invaluable experience in working with a wide variety of breeds with differing behaviours. After gaining valuable experience, I underwent a level 4 course in advanced canine behaviour, achieving a diploma with the British College of Canine Studies. I also took a Dog Owner’s Club course in Instructing Dog Training, run by Robert Alleyne (from t.v.’s Dog Borstal). At the end of the course I was invited to join the club as a resident trainer. In addition I took a canine first aid course and I also volunteer at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, which allowed me to continue to work with a variety of different breeds with training/behavioural issues.
I also undertook Sarah Whitehead’s course which helped me better understand canine body language and facial expressions.
I currently live with my partner and two dogs in Hexham, and am thrilled to be finally living my dream, providing the highest level of help possible assisting those who love their providing invaluable assistance to those who love their pets but are finding them difficult to cope with.
