Meet the Team

Fiona - Instructor & Behaviour Consultant

I have had a love for dogs for as long as I can remember. I got my first dog a Yorkshire Terrier named Buttons when I was 11 and now some years (and several dogs) later I am currently the joint proud owner of our 2 Border Terriers and 2 Collie crosses.

I think the reason that I enjoy this job so much is that the process of learning to communicate with dogs never fails to fascinate me! Each dog is an individual and there is always the exciting challenge of learning how to help each dog and handler reach their full potential, whether that be getting ready for competition or just enjoying being in partnership with a pet.

I currently compete at agility with my beautiful Winnie, a Collie x Poodle.
Tessie our 3 year old rescue Border Terrier has come with a few issues but she will hopefully be starting her competitive agility career this year, 2017.
Boo - AKA the Tank - is allegedly a Welsh Sheepdog, so basically a big Collie! He loves agility and has running contacts to die for but sadly due to recurring health niggles his 'physio' has advised that it would be better for him not to do too much jumping so from now on he will be doing HOOPERS  and SCENTWORK which he absolutely loves.... !

Trevor - Instructor and Behaviour Consultant

 

Like Fiona I have also been a dog owner and training my own dogs for many years. I'm not not such an active instructor anymore but I do stand in for Fiona when needed. I competed at agility with Honey our Border Terrier up until she retired at the amazing age of 13. 

As you can see by the picture my agility life takes on more of a 'support and camp management' role these days!
However, I do try to stay fit and go running with Winnie, Tessie and Boo most mornings before work. Boo is the strange lump under my right arm by the way!

Beyond that I also commit to Agility judging appointments throughout the year to give something back to the 'sport' I love. 

I regularly judge at Kennel Club, UK Agility and Independent shows.
