Why I do what I do
"I believe that no dog parent needs to feel overwhelmed, so I make the impossible possible. Giving you a toolbox full of easy-to-follow training tools, to empower you from puppyhood through to old age."
I started my career as a media lawyer and spent several years working in various media organisations such as the BBC, Comedy Central, BSkyB and ITV.
However, I decided in 2012 to leave my job in law and have a complete career U-turn! I’ve always had a strong affinity with animals and it was whilst volunteering that I discovered my true vocation.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour & Training – passed with a grade A Distinction from COAPE. I am also a graduate of the Victoria Stilwell Dog Training Academy. This six-month intensive course involved working directly with a mentor to improve my technical training skills and also covered human psychology, marketing and how to run a professional dog training business.
Kats & Dogs was nominated and then shortlisted for an Innovation award at the 2018 Greenwich Business Awards for the creative way in which I work with both dogs and their guardians.
