“My passion of, and journey into dog training started nearly
three years ago when I got my second border collie Freddie, who
is now 3years old from a working sheep farm. My love for the breed
started 26 years ago.
I have had dogs ever since I can remember and Freddie lives with two
cavapoos aged 3 months and 1 1/2 years.
Freddie and I have completed Puppy Foundation, KCGC Bronze and Silver, agility training and now we are undertaking Competitive Obedience. Freddie is nervous, anxious and excitable and we have completed sessions to help and support him.
In April 2018 I became Martina's training assistant. My goal is to complete an instructors course and further my journey. As well as training and supporting Freddie, I am also a Family Support Worker within a primary school. Monday to Friday.
