Like many trainers, my journey started with a dog that I did not understand. At the time I was given lots of advice, some good and some bad. Wanting to do the best that I could for my dog I started studying canine behaviour and have now gained several qualifications. Animal training is every changing and I pride myself on always continuing to develop my own knowledge 

Having worked in an animal shelter for nearly 10 years, more than anything else the animal's welfare is always my priority. I am what is called in the industry a 'force free' trainer. This means the techniques I will recommend are not based on pain or intimidation. There are many different ways to train a dog, but I don't believe pain and fear are tools I need in my tool kit. 


A.B.C.D.O.G is committed to working with dogs and their families to rebuild fractured connections and help create attentive behaved and confident dogs. I use modern, positive and easy to learn techniques which you and your dog will enjoy.  


I'm looking forward to meeting you and your dog soon!
