ABOUT ME

My formal qualifications: FdSc in Animal Science, BSc in Canine Behaviour and Training.

In addition to this, I always have seminars and workshops lined up in my diary - that's the great thing about working alongside dogs, there is always plenty more to learn.

Past work includes: show kennels (beardies, poodles and bassett hounds), a working sled-dog centre, various kennels, for film/TV animal trainers,  started dog walking in 2009 and have been teaching since 2011. I've been lucky enough to have worked with, or studied, a number of other species - from egg-laying hens in Nottinghamshire to the pink pigeons in Mauritius. Although they're a far cry from the domestic dog, it has kept me open-minded and reminds me to appreciate how easy we have it working with our canine companions (although it may not always feel like it!).


As a human: I think there is nothing better for the soul than having the freedom to go out into the world exploring with your dog, and I want to help other people get to that place. 


I have previously trained comp obedience, agility, rally, scent-work etc... but primarily now focus on tracking and parkour with my own dog, a mongrel called Daisy.
