I took up agility in October 2001 with my first ever dog Cassie an English Spring Spaniel. Little did i know just how addictive , fun and exciting it would become!
Prior to starting agility I had done Animal Care and Zoological conservation courses and spent several years working in boarding kennels. In the beginning i was just training and competing but then slowly got in to teaching in 2010, then finally taking the step to become a self employed agility trainer in 2019 (scary but exciting!) I have found the teaching side of agility so rewarding and challenging that I now am able to teach and train full time which is just fantastic!
Over the years since starting agility I have trained 7 dogs of various breeds and very different characters and traits , which has really tested my training and made it very fun and exciting as there are always new challenges to overcome and the journeys are always so different!
Below are links to each of my dogs, a bit about them and things they have achieved....
