Junior Instructor. East Grinstead, West Sussex

Shamyla has joined us as a Junior Trainer and has an FdSc Degree in Canine Behaviour and Training.  She has trained dogs in competitive obedience, agility, gundog work, flyball and assistance training, and has experience with puppy socialisation and breeding.  She has also passed her Adolescent Dogs Instructor Certificate at a Junior Level.

She lives in a busy family home with her husband and 4 children, aged 1 to 7, as well as her 3 dogs - Border Collie and 2 working cocker spaniels, so is able to offer training in a busy family environment. Ideal for puppies needing early socialisation, or if you would like to mimic your own home environment.  Shamyla has childcare available for her children outside of school hours, so no training time is lost
