Welcome to my site!

I have always loved dogs but my training journey started when I got my dog, Bertie the cockapoo!  He quite simply changed my life... and career!

Learning how to train him in a modern, positive, force free manner, whilst building an incredible bond, inspired me to find out more.

Very quickly I realised that I needed a change of career to do what I love, so I

started studying with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and other associations before leaving my executive PA job to start my own business and focus on becoming a qualified and accredited dog trainer.

In April 2016 I gained Full Membership with the IMDT and continue my professional development with a variety of experts in the canine industry.

I am very fortunate to have a private enclosed paddock in Warfield to use for training so can offer 1:1 training and also classes in this quiet space.

I love working with dogs and their humans, sharing a mutual passion, coaching you in a way that allows you to communicate clearly with your dog.
