About me

I have always remembered loving dogs. They are so filled with love and optimism – every day is a dog’s best day! For me, dog training is about getting the most out of the human-dog relationship so that we can live our best lives together. Whilst I work with dogs of all ages, I specialise in training and behaviour for puppies & adolescent dogs. 

As a member of some of the leading dog training institutions, I am continually developing my knowledge as a professional. I believe passionately in using positive training methods, backed by science, without any pain, fear or punishment. I am a lifetime member with the DTC, have studied with the Victoria Stilwell Academy and have studied many areas of canine behaviour with the IMDT. 

I am also a fully qualified teacher, with a masters in education, and taught primary age children for five years (from 4 year olds to 11 year olds!). My experience of teaching and learning means I am able to deliver dog training in a way that is easy to understand and simple to follow for the whole family.

What I do, with love and attention...

Whether it’s barking, pulling on the lead, reactivity (or anything else!), I’m here to help!

Fun for you and your dog, come along to my group training classes to learn something new together.
