I've been around dogs for my entire life!  I got my first dog at just 9 years old and threw myself head-first into dog training and dog sports.  Over the years, I gradually accumulated more dogs, and loved nothing more than learning how to train, competing across the country in agility and enjoying quality time with my pack!

In early 2017, I bit the bullet and started up my training business.  My early years as a trainer consisted primarily of teaching agility, but over the years I also started teaching more obedience and general life skills. 

In 2019, I qualified as a Mantrailing UK instructor, and started working with an even wider range of dogs, breeds and quirks! 

After many years of success in the agility world, including competing at Crufts and reaching Grade 7, I hung up my agility shoes and decided to focus more on helping owners to live and love their pet dogs.  

Over the years, I have worked with hundreds of dogs of just about every breed, age and size you can think of.  

I absolutely love working with owners to get the best out of their dogs.  I pride myself on working to find what motivates an individual dog, and where possible like to harness their natural breed traits. 

I currently share my life with 3 beautiful border collies and a crazy kelpie, as well as a couple of ragdoll cats, a few sheep and some pygmy goats. 

I love training all animals, and that includes the goats and cats!  The cats have in-fact, even appeared on TV!  I feel that working with typically less compliant animals improves my training because sometimes it requires really thinking outside the box!

My life pretty much revolves around my animals, and I enjoy canicross, hiking, dabbling in scentwork and herding, as well as the gym, travelling and eating good food.
