Having grown up surrounded by dogs in the house it seemed only natural that when I was 11 I was to get a puppy which would be solely my responsibility (well, and my parents but I didn't like to admit that at the time!). It was when I started taking my puppy to training classes that I realised the true potential of dogs given the right training. This dog then went on to train at higher and higher levels before being involved in some exciting opportunities including film and photo shoot work. Although my passion is for obedience training what I find I canít get enough of is this type of training Ė "trick training".
When I was 18 I qualified as an APDT trainer and now, in addition to training my own dogs I teach classes every week and do one to one training. I love meeting new people and dogs every week and working with their owners to get the dog to fit with their life style.
