I have always had a keen interest in the welfare and care of animals. From an early age I volunteered at veterinary practices, farms and rescue centers with whatever spare time I had, which provided me with invaluable experience across many areas.
I moved to Spain with my two dogs in 2009. It was here that I went on to adopt two more dogs. One from the street and one from a shelter. I quickly realised with the troubles that they had, that I needed to learn more to enable all of my dogs to live their lives to the fullest.
The journey with them has been interesting and rewarding, and is far from over. In 2013 I adopted a young pup with separation anxiety, and two years later took on her sister who also had separation issues.
I am a Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) with the Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers (CCPDT), a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT), specializing in separation anxiety issues and a Certified Behaviour Adjustment Training Instructor (CBATI). I am currently taking a course in Applied Behaviour to work towards becoming a certified canine behaviour consultant.
I strongly believe that it is essential to show dog guardians the most humane ways to train their dogs.
Education is key. I am bringing top class global trainers here to the Costa del Sol in a series of seminars to give you their expertise first-hand.
I offer all types of training from group classes, general manners, preparing dogs for vet visits and behaviour modification. My true passion is helping dogs with fear based issues and separation anxiety.
I look forward to meeting you and your canine companion and I am excited for the journey on which we are about to embark on.
