I am very experienced in handling and training dogs. I own and run a very successful dog grooming salon Pets Come First in horndean and have done for the last 5 years however my passion has always been dog training so I am now looking at branching the business out to offer this extra service.


I currently own an optimistic and highly driven 2 year old working cocker spaniel called Otto and I love to train him in lots of different disciplines such as:



Scent work 

I’m very proud to say that my most recent certification with my dog Otto, is a fully qualified operational Level 3 Narcotics (drugs) detection team. This for me was a massive achievement!I strongly believe that even as qualified and experienced dog trainers we are “never done” there is always more to learn and every day teaches us something new so I intend on continuing to participate in up and coming workshops and courses to further my knowledge which will ensure that I give the best quality and up to date training to all of my clients. 

Over the last 3 years I have attended, participated and completed a wide range of courses and workshops to expand my knowledge on dog training and behavior here are a few to date:
