I am a behaviourist and trainer, Championship
show judge in German Shepherds and judge Leonbergers at open show
level. I have three German Shepherds and two Leonbergers. I have
made up a Champion with my German Shepherds and handled both my own
and other dogs gaining their stud book numbers.
I have been training dogs for over thirty
years in both obedience and ringcraft. I run dog training classes
and also do one to one behaviour sessions. I have now qualified as
an Applied Canine Pharmacognosist following training with Caroline
Ingraham, where dogs self-select oils, powders and herbs to medicate
and bring themselves into a better balance and well-being. This is a
complimentary therapy and is not meant to take the place of a vet.
I have been on many courses run by
different types of training however I have found that the one method
that has transformed many dogs and owners was brought about from my
learning with Sheila Harper Ltd where I undertook the IDBTS now
called the IPACS course.
From learning with
Sheila and Winny, both Jenny and myself have transformed our
understanding of dogs and their owners to concentrate on a dog
having the ability to develop life skills and to be a dog! I have
also completed their IPACS2 course run by Sheila Harper Ltd,
developing our skills from the foundation course taken earlier. I
would recommend any of Sheila’s courses.
