In October of 2014 I was very pleased & privileged to take up a rare opportunity to fly out to the world-famous Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita near Los Angeles to attend additional specialist canine communication training with Cesar Millan
In July 2016 I was extremely grateful for the very rare opportunity to attend a Lucas Agnew Missing Link Workshop - right here in the UK. Brian Agnew (previously Cesar Millan's head trainer at the Dog Psychology Center in California) is an exceptionally talented behaviourist & tutor who usually works & teaches alongside his business partner, Cesar's friend & colleague for many years, Cheri Lucas. Unfortunately Cheri was unable to attend but it was an incredible experience to work & learn so closely with Brian. I was even luckier still to attend further dog behaviour workshops to expand my knowledge & experience under the instruction of the incredible Brian Agnew in 2017 & 2018, working with my own Bulldog William & with other clients' dogs at my friend & colleague Jo Cottrell's Dog Trouble behaviour centre in Wokingham.
With Health & Safety a priority, both my husband & myself have completed Dog First Aid training courses.....
......& in July 2018 I became an official
CPD Accredited Emergency Canine First Aider.
With an intensive programme of ongoing additional studies, I ensure that I am continually developing & learning so that you, the client, are guaranteed the best possible service.
My company is based on the belief that my clients' & their dogs' needs are of the utmost importance, & I am totally committed to meeting those needs.
