My interest in dog training began over 20 years ago, when I adopted a deaf rescue dog as a volunteer at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

I am a tutor with Puppy School, an accredited animal trainer with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC) and City & Guilds qualified as a Scent Detection Dog Handler & Instructor with the UK College of Scent Dogs (UKCSD). I am also working towards membership with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). I currently run dog training classes in the Gateshead area.

I believe there is great value in friendship between animals and humans, as a means of both emotional and physical support, and I volunteer as an assessor for Wag & Company to help provide much needed companionship for those who are lonely and are missing a canine friend.
