Bekki is one of our Advanced Senior Instructors with over 7 years of training. She has a BSc Degree in Animal Behaviour and Wildlife Conservation, is a Dog Training College Approve Instructor, and a member of the Pet Professional Guild. 

​

Bekki has experience training residential training dogs to a high standard and has worked with assistance dogs; training dogs for diabetic alert and therapy dogs for people with anxiety and autism. 

 

She also has 4 years experience volunteering at a local rescue centre, helping with the training and rehoming of rescue dogs. 

 

Bekki is a member of the Pet Professional Guild and is passionate about reward-based training. All of her training is done using treats, toys, games and lots of praise to ensure your dog enjoys their stay and learns effectively whilst maintaining high welfare standards.

 

Bekki offers training in her family home with her 2 year old son, her Cocker Spaniel Raven and cat.  She has access to horses & cows, as well as nieces and nephews for training purposes, making her a popular choice for those seeking a family environment with exposure to young children.  Her local training grounds include local woodland, town and the beach.  She only takes in 3 dogs for training at any one time, so is able to offer a more personal and exclusive training service.
