I have lived with dogs, big and small (sometimes simultaneously!) since I was 7 years old – and from those very early days I just knew I wanted to spend my life surrounded by these clever, loyal, fascinating and downright hilarious creatures.
I began studying canine behaviour intensively in 2014, and have been offering bespoke training packages since 2016. Since I believe you can never know enough about man's best friend, I continue to regularly attend workshops and seminars, and progress my academic studies in this exciting field.
I love nothing more than helping others enjoy the fantastic kind of relationship with their dog that can be achieved with a little bit of effort (and a sprinkling of cooked chicken!) and I'm always excited to meet a new client, and help get them started on their own training journey.
As well as offering bespoke training packages to help dog-owners across the city of Peterborough, I am also an approved fosterer and trainer for Silver Fox Dog Rescue – so keep an eye on the blog and the Facebook page for the latest four-legged cuties that have stolen a space in my home (and in my heart!) whilst I help them become ready to find a forever home of their own.
Please get in touch today to register your interest and book your own training consultation.
