I am a Wiltshire based and Director of Pure Dog Listeners in the UK with over 28yrs experience. Strictly speaking I am not a dog behaviorist although, dog behaviour problems are my specialty.
Prior to getting involved with dogs, I trained and worked as a nurse in accident and emergency for 3yrs; following that I was a school nursing sister for 7yrs. It was during this time I bought my first dog, Otta, a gorgoeus black labrador. I started training him with a local dog trainer and was inspired to take training to a higher level entering him in retrieving competitions. Even at this stage I was looking outside the box of traditional training and trying to work with the dogs instincts and not against, with some success.With Otta I won a few tests, but with family ever increasing I had to take a back step, my son is now13yrs and my daughter is 9yrs.
I am for ever learning from our Canine friends, scientists, behaviourists and trainers. You can never know too much or stop learning.
