I am a Qualified Veterinary Nurse and a Member of the Association Of Pet Dog Trainers. I started my working life in veterinary practice in 1998, qualifying in 2003. I went on to become head nurse of the practice where I was working. During my years in veterinary practice I experienced a wide variety of attitudes from human beings towards animals. I also experienced a wide variety of animal behaviours while handling and observing others handling the animals in my care. This made me curious about how these animals were feeling and what they were thinking.
I consequently went on to do a companion animal behaviour course and have since attended numerous seminars and conferences on the complex subjects of animal behaviour and training. I have also become a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. I have now been helping owners with their pet dilemmas since 2005. I run training classes for all ages of dogs. The best part of what I do is teaching my puppy classes as I hope to help the next generation of dogs to be well socialised and great members of society and to help their owners to understand how their dogs think and therefore train them appropriately and in a kind and effective way.
