Kassie Cierniak

Senior Trainer Basingstoke, Hampshire


Kassie has been a member of our team for 3 years, is a Senior level Instructor and a valuable member of the Adolescent Dogs team.  She has experience working with a variety of breeds and gets excellent results with challenging dogs. 

All of Kassie's own dogs are trained to a high standard, so are great role models for dogs who come to stay for training. Her Golden Retriever Cinnamon is a fully trained assistance dog.  This means that Kassie has experience with teaching assistance dog tasks and with training dogs to reach the high standards needed to pass an access test. She is also able to customise the transfer of training to aid those who are using wheelchairs or walking aids. 

Kassie offers training in her busy, child free family home with her husband and fellow trainer Martin and their 3 dogs (Golden Retriever, a Rough Collie and a Miniature Dachshund), as well as a ca


This makes her a popular option for those seeking work with socialisation with puppies, resocialisation for adult dogs and distraction training, as both her and Martin can work together to provide controlled distractions and interactions.  This also means that Kassie and Martin are a popular choice for multi dog households who want their dogs to stay together and have their own individual trainers.

Kassie can also provide training around livestock such as sheep, cows and horses, and has quick access to dogs needing work with public transport or in busy cities, which is ideal for those with dogs who live in London.
