About us at Churnet Valley Dog Training, Staffordshire.
I'v always had a dog in my life, they know so much about us and give us so much, I believe we such take the time to learn about them, how to communicate with them, learn about their body language, what makes them happy, what upsets them, what they need. Once you understand the dog that knowledge will do so much for the relationship between you and your dog.
I enjoy going to fun dog shows with my own dog, I am not very competitive but if there is a fun obedience class I will enter it.
I have a Compass education diploma in Canine Behavior and Psychology achieving a distinction.
I have a Advanced Diploma in canine behavioral management.
I have passed a behaviour modification practical course at the IABTC with a distinction.
I have attended a course and have a certificate from the Derbyshire Canine Center on the subject of instructing dog owners in the positive reinforcement and behavioral method of training.

I have passed a Kennel Club good Citizen Dog Scheme examiner Assessment Course to act as examiner for the Silver level.
These certificates and experience mean I have good knowledge of how dogs learn, how to communicate with a dog, and the best way to train them.
I can show you lots of fun and interesting activities to do with dog, for example how to get your dog to find things for you, how to track with your dog, how to get your dog to retrieve and other things you and your dog will enjoy.
It's a lovely job and very rewarding especially when I see smiley faces and wagging tails.
I travel around Staffordshire and Derbyshire to help people to train their dogs on a one to one basis.
