With over 25 years experience working with animals both large and small, including horses, dairy cows, cats, rats and of course dogs, I have a range of qualifications including Companion Animal Services in Dog Behaviour and Training with the Delta Institute and am a Delta Accredited Canine Good Citizen Instructor. I’m also a qualified Veterinary Nurse and have further qualifications in Horse Management, from the Institute of Technology Ultimo and The British Horse Society.
As an individual, I believe in the humane treatment of animals at all times. My work in a variety of industries, with a number of species, has led me here, to a place free of exploitation, where I know that I am helping dogs and their humans have a better life together; a relationship built on trust, kindness and mutual understanding.
Along with my work at Positively Rewarding, I also work with the behaviour team at a large local animal shelter and am a member of a number of industry associations including the Delta Institute, the APDT (Australian Association of Pet Dog Trainers) and the PPGA (Pet Professional Guild Australia)
I continue to build on my education by regularly attending dog behaviour conferences and seminars, to ensure my knowledge is up-to-date, enabling me to provide you with the latest knowledge in behaviour and training.
