I achieved the Level 4 Advanced Canine Behaviour Diploma from the British College of Canine Studies in May 2017 and qualified as a Canine Nutritionist in January 2022. I have taught the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award Scheme for 15 + years now , helping over 8,000 dog owners pass their Bronze Good Citizen Award. Since I can remember I have always had a love of dogs, unable to have a dog as a child growing up, the first thing I did when I moved out was buy my first dog, a Rottweiler puppy named Roxy. Sadly Roxy only lived until she was 6 but was the foundation for my interest in competitive obedience and taught me so much. Since Roxy, I have owned 3 other Rottweilers and 2 Labradors, bred two litters, competed in hundreds of obedience shows, earning a place at Crufts 2017. I have competed in Championship Breed shows with the Rottweiler dog I bred, have had a go at Rally-O, Agility and most recently entered and placed in many Gundog Working Tests. More recently I have become involved in training working Gundogs (Labradors), I attend several shoots during the winter months as a picker upper or in the gunline shooting and working my own dog.
I have a current Canine First Aid Certificate.
