I adopted Breeze, my pride and joy, in August 2016 from Margaret Green rescue centre. I started coming to Obedience and Rally classes at Wessex Dog Training Club a couple of months later and both Breeze and I really enjoyed it. I found the help and advice from Jenny and Phil invaluable as Breeze and I were getting to know each other and creating a bond. Breeze has passed the Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. 

We now also do Agility and Hoopers (applied obedience!) which we love, and achieved the Good Hoopers Silver award recently. 

I assist at the club with both obedience and agility classes.

Our latest venture is Scentwork, where the dog and handler work as a team to detect a hidden scent. Just like narcotic and explosive detection dogs but we search for less dangerous scents! I did a couple of courses with Scentwork UK and passed to become a recognised Scentwork UK Trainer and are running Scentwork courses for the club. 

Qualifications and Courses:

I am a qualified teacher (PGCE) with 15years experience of planning courses and teaching adults and children.
