First of all I am a dog lover and owner for over 30 years. I breed Australian Shepherds
and successfully show and compete in Obedience and Working Trials.
My main aim and motivation is to make life living with a dog pleasurable for both the people
and the dog. Too many owners buy a dog and are surprised at how much 'hard work' it is.
The dog becomes frustrated and grows increasingly stressed through lack of exercise and
stimulation. In the worst cases the dog can get out of control and need to be re-homed.
I would like to avoid this situation and make every effort to ensure the dog training classes
are fun and sustainable for all parties. Using simple reward techniques the training can easily
be translated to the home environment.
I tackle all aspects of dog training which can be taught in either group classes or on an
individual basis at your home.
Training courses are currently in the Cadnam, New Forest area of Hampshire.
New for 2017 are classes in the growing discipline of Scentwork, certified by Scentwork UK with an acredited Scentwork Trainer and Judge.
I have been a kennel club approved breeder since 2006.
Competing regularly in the show ring with my Australian shepherds, also competing in Obedience and Working Trials. My own dogs have often qualified for the UK's premier Dog Show - Crufts. I have showed Austrailian Shepherds nationally and internationally since 2001.
I first started training dogs and their owners in 1993. Classes from puppy to adult dogs, both in groups and one-to-one with clients.
In 2017 I became a Scentwork UK trainer and judge.
