My story so far
A warm welcome to K7@K9T. I'm a professional qualified dog trainer with many years of experience training dogs and I never stop seeking new skills there is always something new to learn. I have successfully completed my BIPDT week’s course in 2014; I am currently studying a level three course, with dog training college. Alongside this I have undertaken a range of behavioural, breed and first aid courses.
I am honest, caring and passionate about my work, and I will go out of my way to make it happen. I have often been described as caring too much; I feel that if a client of mine does not understand and cannot follow the programme, I believe I have failed my client. It’s my job to get you through the training. All work is a representation of me and what stand for. Feedback and reviews are an update to my CV I work hard to get results, so far all of my customers are very happy. Most of my work is through recommendations, Facebook reviews and some from my web page.
In 2014 I left a professional position in Engineering to start my own dog training and home boarding business. The response to my services was incredible for both home boarding and training, so much so that it was impossible to set aside as much time to train as I wanted. Training has been my passion my whole life. I regularly walked people’s dogs and spent time training them at the local park; I used to get a lot of people asking for my help with their dogs when I was around 14 years old. Sadly when I was young there was not the career opportunity there is today. I believe you should follow your dream no matter what age you are, so last year I decided to just train and walk a few dogs, and I am pleased to say in this short time I am already successful and happy doing what I love.
I would like to introduce Emma from Spot on dog walking services. She has recently joined the team and I am very happy to have her on board. I first met Emma and her husband when I needed a dog sitter in 2019. I was very particular about the people I could leave to look after my own dogs and even more importantly the dogs in my care. They came to my house and stayed overnight occasionally. It was clear that they looked after the dogs as well as I did, giving me regular feedback. We also became good friends and decided it would be good to work together as a team. Emma has her own dog walking service and is great around dogs and they love to be around Emma. A dog knows a good person and I always go on a dog’s instinct.
I am a dedicated animal lover with many years of experience with dogs. I grew up volunteering in dog rescue centres which introduced me to all different kinds of dogs from many different backgrounds, which taught me about the different needs of each and every dog and how I could best support the needs of each dog. After many years of working in an office and always wanting to work with dogs, the opportunity arose for me to offer a great service to my potential clients and their dogs. I jumped at the chance to join up with Kim to not only offer dog walks but to offer a great environment where dogs can truly explore and enjoy themselves in a secure private field and whilst building a great relationship. I strongly believe we are great team together, and can offer much more to the dogs as a team.
I am truly passionate about my job and always work hard to deliver the best service for my customers and their dogs.
