My History

I haven't always been a dog trainer, although it has always been a passion! I grew up with a German Shepherd cross Collie called Ben who was a fantastic dog, extremely well behaved and loving, except that he was an escape artist. Sadly he grew old and crossed the rainbow bridge when I was 11 years old. 


For the next 14 years, I was dogless! I even had cats! 


After leaving school, I worked in a door factory for a few months before starting a job in the Court Service. During my time in the court service, I learned a method called LEAN. This was a way of getting from A to B for a certain task in the quickest and most effective way whilst minimising risk, which is something that I can now bring to dog training. I stayed in the Court Service for 9 years, and while there I had a variety of jobs, from management to Court Clerking for Circuit Judges, I worked on various projects including ones where I created processes for Bills that were passing through Parliament and fed back recommendations to them.
