My life has always been full of animals! As a child I had the usual cats and dogs, but as I became a teenager I ventured into keeping a wider range of pets, including reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. This keen interest in watching animal behaviour led to completing a degree in Applied Zoology and spending a little time working at the Reptile House at London Zoo.
After university I trained and worked as a Primary School Teacher but never lost my passion for animals. My menagerie grew, and over time I kept and trained many species including horses, hens and llamas. It was adopting a very troubled whippet/Jack Russell cross, and trying to help him with a whole bundle of behaviour problems, that led me back to more specific learning about canine behaviour. I read avidly, attended conferences and courses and gained a lot of practical experience with a wide range of dogs and positive trainers.
This led me to work with the Behaviour Team at Bath Cats and Dogs Home. This is where I really appreciated the sad consequences of dogs that did not have a good relationship with people, but also the huge improvements that could often be made with consistent positive training. I worked with adult dogs and also developed a socialisation programme for any puppies in the home. The most rewarding aspect of my role was seeing bonds grow between owners and their dogs as behaviour issues were resolved.
Puppy School gives every puppy attending the very best introduction to positive training methods and the experience to start to live as a happy dog in what can be a very confusing human world. As a Primary School Teacher I also especially welcome children to the classes, to help all the puppies get used to children, but also to teach our next generation of responsible dog owners.
If you would like to book onto the next course, please visit my website for more information or call for a chat. I also offer Puppy University and other follow on classes along with home training 1-2-1.
