About Us

Canine Concept Training

I help owners with their struggles and turning them into strengths by playing concept games which help to build confidence and optimism. Before I start any sessions, I offer a consultation this is so I can get to know you and your dog and be able to get an idea what games will be best suited for you and your dog .

About me

I grew up in Berkshire, where I had a few fish & a lovely Yellow Lab as a child, After I left school I had a couple of Admin jobs,.

I then moving to Germany in 1990 to join my husband who was serving in the Army out there, while out there I had my 2 older children, I took my cat with me & then rescued another while living in Germany.

 In 1996 we moved back to the Uk with my husband & children, shortly after I started working as a Keyworker at local preschools, in 2003 I worked as a Purchase Administrator at a local Army camp. 

In 2008 started working from home as childminder, it was when we got our 1st dog that I realised I really wanted to work with animals & started work as a Dog Walker for a local Pet sitting business in 2012. I got to care for many local pets from dogs to an Iguana.

I have just started my journey to become a Pro Dog Trainer.

I have also spent years training my own 2 dogs, one has learnt to do Tricks and can do some Heelwork to Music, both do Agility,

I have 1 cats, 10yr old Tilly, Otto my Weimaraner & Pixie Yorkshire Terrier who joined my family Nov 2013 & Blue our Continental Giant Rabbit, in my spare time I enjoys teaching Otto new tricks & taking Otto & Pixie for nice long walks. 

I have many years of experience of caring for pets from looking after my own to looking after friends pets ranging from rats to my friends Exmoor pony.

Shirley is fantastic, nothing is ever too much trouble for her. This week with the arrival of our baby she was able to walk our dogs at really short notice, they also love it when they see her....
