  • About Tutor
    I started working with dogs 11 years ago when I was lucky enough to be given a job at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People which is an Assistance Dog charity. I worked in the Welfare department for 5.5 years and then moved into my current role as a Dog Trainer which I’ve been doing for the last 5.5 years.
    Previous to working for Hearing Dogs, I worked on an open farm as a tour guide working with animals ranging from mice to lambs and also at Woburn Safari Park working with Lorikeets. I studied for my HND in Animal Science when I was 19 and then 2 years later went on to study the final year which gave me a degree in Animal Management.
    I live in Witney with my partner and 2 dogs. Goldie is my 10 year old Collie X and she is my old faithful. I’ve had her for 10 years and we’ve worked together for the display team at Hearing Dogs for the majority of that time. In 2016 she retired from the display team after a lot of fun and exploring the country. Our second dog is George is a 6 year old Westie which pretty much sums him up! He is the opposite to Goldie but so cute you can’t help but forgive the outright cheekiness at times!!
    From the various roles I’ve worked in, I know that I really enjoy teaching people, so I applied to Puppy School and was fortunate enough that there wasn’t a current tutor in the area where I live. I chose Puppy School because even after you’ve completed your initial training, they continue to train you in new areas and keep you up to date with developing techniques. I love learning and I don’t think you can ever know everything so this is great for me, and I know that every puppy and human I work with will teach me something new. If I can use my experiences and knowledge to help just one person:puppy relationship to enjoy each other a little more, then I’ll be happy with that.
