I knew I had to follow my passion to help dogs and people live a happier life together.

Where it started?

From a young age I had a real love for animals,  I really wanted to be a vet but truth be told I wasn't good enough academically. Growing up we had every small pet under the sun until one day I finally convinced my mum to let us get a puppy. Along came Molly, our wonderful Labradoodle, I took it upon myself to train her and I have to admit I think I did a pretty good job, she did sit and paw- what more does a dog need to know?

I then went off to university to follow my other passion, theatre. Molly lived on until the grand old age of 15 years old and she left a big whole in our hearts

I left university and headed straight for London'sWest End

I had a long and successful career as an assistant stage manager on West End musicals. I have worked on shows such as The Bodyguard, Monty Python One Down Five To Go, Shrek the Musical and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Working on large-scale musicals gave me so much joy, but ultimately my love and passion for dogs gave me the push to change careers and follow my real passion.

The big career change.

My late good friend Oli Juste was a big catalyst into my big career change and head into dog training. He not only mentored me but was a huge instumnetal part in my studies and setting up my business. I set up my business in September 2017 and I haven't looked back. 
 

I am a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APTD) (no 01494) I completed the UK Sniffer Dogs Bronze and Silver Instructor. I also have done many scent courses including Scent for Six by The School of Canine Science and Nosework with Fenzi Dog Sports Academy. I am a CPD certified pet first aider.

I am a reward based trainer, using kind, fair and evidence based methods only. I want to help you learn how to effectively communicate with your dog in a fun and positive way.  
 

My best teacher is my beagle Luna.

My beagle Luna really has been the best teacher I could ever have, when I mention that I have a beagle I can just see the look on people's faces and the look is normally followed with 'Aren't beagles hard to train?' Luna has made me a better dog trainer, she has thrown my some challenges and guided me along the way. I owe my passion to scentwork to her, she really does have the best nose in London.
