ABOUT THE TRAINER

Hi, I am Barbara and I am pictured above with my dogs who you will meet from time to time at Dog Training. I am a professional and competent dog trainer with 30 years experience.

I am a Kennel Club Dog Training and Canine Behaviour Scheme Accredited Instructor in CD.,GCDS.,Ob.Adv.  KCAI logo

I compete in competitive obedience shows organized around the country and licensed by The Kennel Club. I also Judge at Kennel Club licensed Obedience events. I consider myself to be quite successful in competitive obedience and have won numerous classes with a variety of my dogs past and present. My current dogs that I compete with are Connor who works Championship 'C' and Jessica who competes in open 'C' classes. Jessica was selected to work 'A' class as a member of the Southern Obedience Team at Crufts 2010 . The team won! (see below photo of me and Jess at Crufts). I also compete with my young Border Collie, Misty who works A and B classes in obedience.
My Greyhound, Sadie does not compete but this year has achieved her Bronze and Silver Kennel Club Good Citizen awards. In 2013, I have a new Border Collie puppy named Harry. He will be one year in February 2014 and I am hoping to start competing with him this year.

I have run my own club now for over eight years and prior to this I was a committee member and trainer with a registered club for about ten years. I thoroughly enjoy helping members to train their dogs and I find it very rewarding to see the progress of both dogs and owners becoming a real partnership. As well as running the club I offer one-to-one training and home care services for those who need this. If you join my club I do hope you enjoy training your dog as much as I enjoy supporting you to do this. I hope you all continue to have many happy and enjoyable times with your four legged friends.

I WISH ALL OF YOU SUCCESSFUL TRAINING AND A REWARDING RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR DOG. ENJOY YOUR TIME WITH THEM.
