My fascination with canine behaviour and training began with my own dog, leading me to pursue courses with accredited qualifications and a basis in the science of dog training.

I am a qualified Canine Behaviour and Training Technician (OCN Level 4), I hold a Fetac Level 6 in Canine Obedience and Training and I’m a certified Canine first responder and a member of the pet professional guild*.

I believe in life long learning (for all species) and regularly attend workshops and seminars with industry leaders, ensuring that my knowledge is constantly informed and updated.

I’m also a dog owner, like you. I understand the concerns that dog ownership entails, the difficulties of balancing modern life and your own needs with those of your dog and the joys of building a wonderful relationship with your best friend.

I’m committed to providing clients with a professional, discrete and trustworthy service, and I’m passionate about developing your dog’s life skills through training, exercise, enrichment and play.
