Dogs have been at the centre of my life for as long as I can remember. I have been lucky enough to live and work with a wide variety of different dogs; from family pets, show dogs, rescue dogs and even a blood hound pack!
I graduated with Distinction from the Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training and Behaviour (VSA). Joining VSA, and being taught by Victoria herself, has been one of the most fantastic experiences of my life. Learning force-free, positive, training from Victoria means that all of my own work with dogs is grounded on the most up to date, science-based methods. As part of the VSA course I was mentored by Kay.
I attended classes, private consultations and workshops with Kay, ensuring my academic learning was backed up with ‘real life’, hands on, experience.
I have my own 11-year-old beagle, Ella, with whom I have taken part in TD Rally and the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award scheme. I also own two horses and have competed to National level in Dressage.
