About Me

I am passionate about helping people to train and understand their canine companions using kind and effective training techniques based on the latest evidence-based scientific research; having attained a First Class Honours Degree BSc (Hons) in Applied Animal Behaviour from the University of Portsmouth.

I have also been awarded a Foundation Degree with merit in Applied Canine Behaviour and Training from Hull University.

I am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT)
Membership Number: 01497. The APDT assess all members according to strict criteria which ensures I have the appropriate skills to teach dog training. As members we are required to keep our education up to date and adhere to a code of practice. https://apdt.co.uk/

I am also a registered Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC) https://abtc.org.uk/.  I therefore must adhere to their ethical standards and codes of practice.  I also regularly attend additional courses, workshops and seminars focusing on new research in the behaviour and training field.

I have over seven years of experience providing dog training in group and one-to-one settings; additionally, I offer behavioural consultations either remotely or in the home environment and/or where the problem behaviour occurs, if this can be done safely.

I have extensive work experience at various organisations, the Guide Dogs for the Blind at their training school in Redbridge, at Dog’s Trust Dog school, Kent  and I am currently volunteering part time as an educational speaker with Blue Cross, delivering a national programme of talks to schools and youth groups.

Fellowship of Animal Behaviour Clinicians

I am a Candidate Member of the Fellowship of Animal Behaviour Clinicians and a Provisional member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC).

I am fully insured with Petplan Sanctuary.

Teddy the Newfoundland

I live in East Dulwich with my husband and five year old Newfoundland, Teddy and have special interests in scent work and water rescue training which I enjoy during the summer months with my bear!
