Hi my name is Jennyand I’m an Obedience, Rally-O and Agility trainer. I have been an instructor in obedience and agility for nearly 20 years. My first border collie, Scamp was trained up to the Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold award and on the agility course although he was slow he didn’t knock any of the fences down. At the same time we had Polly another border who I trained up to the Silver Kennel Club Good Citizen award. Polly enjoyed agility but as with border collies she would get over excited. Sadly Scamp and Polly are no longer with us. I now have a border collier called Judy who has been deaf from birth. But this hasn’t in any way stopped me training her in obedience, agility, fly ball, heelwork to music, and Rally O, and Rally Freestyle. I am very proud of Judy to have reached such a high standard with her disability. She has achieved the Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold award.
I am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. I am also an examiner for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award Bronze. I have attended an Introduction to K9 Psychology Course and completed an Intermediate Psychology Course. I have recently completed an on line course ‘Learn to Talk Dogs’ in Canine Body Language and Facial Expressions. I have attended one day seminars on ‘How Dogs Communicate’ ‘Problem Solving’, ‘Stress is no Joke’ and ‘Dominance: Fact or Fiction ‘. A one day course of Interpreting Canine Body Language – Aggression and two half day courses on first aid for dog and the Tellington touch.
