I have been training dogs professionally since 2016, including pet dogs and working gundogs, and have also enjoyed teaching my own gundogs since 2012. I am a behavioural trainer who works with every dog and owner individually, taking a holistic approach to training.I am proud to have trained alongside and incredible dog trainers and behaviourists, including well-renowned Dog Behaviourist Robert Alleyne (attending his 12-week instructors' course in 2016), and John Rogerson. In addition, I have continued to participate in various workshops and seminars, including canine first aid, dog aggression awareness, dog on dog aggression courses, dog on human aggression courses, and Zoopharmacognosy, Tellington Ttouch, to name a few, and studying dog training and behaviour with the CIDBT.
I am passionate about pet and gundog training.I believe in educating owners on how appropriate training can help prevent behavioural problems with pet dogs, and that gundog training doesn't require harsh handling.I have a passion for and specialise in working with reluctant retrievers.
Whether the owner wants to work their gundog or not, having a reluctant retriever can bring unwanted behaviours and potential risks.I enjoy working my dogs and have a couple of local shoots where I work my dogs, usually picking up but occasionally beating.I run puppy classes, 121s, gundog classes, workshops, training days, and walked up training days and KC working gundog certificate days for my clients.I am the author of the puppy book 'The Life of Rose' raising puppies the family dog services way.
