Have been professionally training dogs for more than 30 years.
Qualified at Surrey University to train, assess and compile reports on dogs observed and then discuss strategies and development plans.
Competed in the 50th National Police Dog Trials, aimed at encouraging the professional development of police dog handling.
The competition tested skills including tracking, obedience, agility, searching and detaining.
I won two awards; One for the highest score in Phase 3 and then for achieving overall fourth place in the competition.
During my time in the police force I have trained dogs in the detection of humans, controlled and prohibited substances with modern and progressive methods.
Since leaving the service I continued my love and interest in helping and training dogs and set up TRAINRITE.
As well as working with individuals, I work closely with veterinary practices, rescue centre and rehabilitation organisations.
I have also been involved in the training and development of dogs and handlers for government agencies overseas.
Through a positive approach using modern, scientific and proven methods, I look to make having a canine companion a pleasure.
Occasionally I do have young dogs that are part or fully trained. All dogs are well socialised and available to the right home.
