Dogs have always been a part of my life. In 2010 I was lucky enough to change my career to begin working with dogs. Since then I have covered a wide range of areas of dog training, behaviour and care, through my work and education.

I am a fully certified member of the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers).

I believe building a happy relationship with your dog is paramount to successful training and a harmonious life together.  Using positive, science based methods I aim to make training fun and achievable for both dog and owner.

If there are bigger behaviour challenges to over come with your dog, I offer support, training and advice for behavioural difficulties such as, aggression, separation issues and fearfulness.

Below is a list of courses I have attended over the last 7 years. I  continue to  build on my knowledge and skills to ensure I am offering you the best and most up to date training and support there is. ​​
