About me

I'm a full member of the 
Association of Pet Dog Trainers 
(MAPDT1155) and abide by their code of practice and
have been annually assessed 
and certificated achieving both a first and second with the 
British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers 

We have run up to
seven classes a week in 
Mansfield and Nottingham 




I occasionally run puppy parties at a local 
veterinary practice & have done Q&A's at 
local pets at home stores
Previously instructed at 
Nottingham's longest 
established dog training club

Our family always had dogs, we were 
brought up with
Gsds, Dachsunds and 
Mixed breed rescues.

Currently two Std Schnauzers 
and three mini Schnauzers 
allow me to live with them 



My view of dog training has changed 
over the years
I have experienced first hand 
the results of trainers with "loads of experience" 
but little or low quality knowledge 
and the dogs paid a high price for it. 
Experience is good, 
but without up to date, relevant 
and respected education 
it is nothing more than trial and error

My main interest is 
helping owners understand their dogs 
behavioural problems

I regularly attend seminars/lectures including:
Sarah Whitehead. Sex, Lies and Videotape
WOOF 2013/ 3 day conference, speakers including;
