I have been an animal lover since I was a small child and once old enough I had a Saturday job at my local vets. I then trained as a Veterinary Nurse at that practice.
My parents never let me have a dog at home but inevitably when I left home my first dog came to me via the veterinary practice where I worked, a GSD x brought in as an RTA. His name was Mickey Flynn. Since then I have never been without a dog by my side.
I met Nicky when I signed up for her puppy class in Kenilworth with my current Springer Spaniel Lola in 2016. We then progressed through bronze and silver classes and enjoyed a great day out at Crufts in 2107 with Nicky and her dog Bertie as part of the Good Citizenship Bronze demo team. Definitely a day to remember!
My other dog is Inca, a black Labrador. She has also gone through all of Nicky’s classes gaining her Gold award in 2019.
When the opportunity to train as one of Nicky’s trainers came along I didn’t hesitate. I firmly believe that her training method of positive reinforcement is the kindest and most effective way to train both dog and owner. If I can help others to achieve the same bond, trust and respect that I have with my dogs that to me is a job well done!
