 A Little About Me 

 I have had dogs in my life for over 18 years, my first dog 'Penny' a black Labrador in many ways was my saviour, she 'gave me her paw, when I needed a hand' & so she is the inspiration behind 'Paws for Thought & I Will Give You a Hand'

Over the years there has been several Springer Spaniels and  a little Jack Russel who was desperately in need of rehoming; I have always expected a high level of obedience from our dogs, irrespective of which canine sports we undertook or indeed wherever we took them. Isla, is my young 2 year old Labrador and together we are learning the art of agility, something I have not embarked upon before, she is full of energy & enthusiasm, with a high instinctual drive, guided with respect and her biddable nature to please.

The psychology of dogs has always fascinated me and so my journey to become a Behaviourist began.

I am personally only too well aware of bad training techniques and quick fixes, and so it is with passion I am trying to redress the balance. 

I train with positive reinforcement, fair and balanced training techniques, tailored to each  individual Client and their dog(s), 'one size....does not fit all!'  I endeavour to work alongside my Clients to improve their communication and relationship with their companion, bearing in mind at all times the Clients ultimate goal(s).  I can provide as much or as little support as each Client wishes, telephone and/or email communication is  unlimited, I want the best for you and your dog(s). With this in mind I am currently working towards a degree which allows me  to be a student member of the TCBTS
