Like most dog trainers I've owned easy dogs who make me look good and complex dogs who helped me learn. What was a hobby became a passion and in the last five years I've backed up my practical experience with theoretical knowledge from some of the best trainers and behaviourists in the world.
Whilst I have now worked with most common breeds of dog, sighthounds are my speciality along with the challenges of rehoming podencos (street dogs). Just in case you've never had a sighthound or a podenco in your life, their characters tend to revolve around sensitivity, reactivity and anxiety. As a trainer, I've helped a lot of working breeds where we've focussed on recall, responsiveness, and calming and tiring their brains as well as their bodies.
I look forward to meeting and helping you
I am highly qualified and motivated professional, I am an expert in my field. It is my aim to provide comprehensive, first-rate services to my clients.
I follow modern, science based methods. I will not recommend or use tools or methods that will cause pain, discomfort or distress to your dog. I firmly believe that training should be fun for those at both ends of the lead.
Whilst I am positive, I am not permissive. I do believe that dogs need kind, compassionate guidance, they do need rules and boundaries in order to live happily and safely alongside us. But I believe that these rules and boundaries can be put in place using kind methods.
