KCAI, ABIPDT, City & Guilds NPTC
Pauline has been running dog training classes since 1996 and has lived with dogs her whole life, having owned five – 4 Golden Retrievers from puppies and a German Shepherd whom she rescued when he was 6 months old. She was the rehoming Dog Officer for a local registered animal charity for seven years. Her previous dogs passed their Gold Certificates in The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme tests and Teds became a PAT Dog (Pets as Therapy). She is very proud of her current Golden Retriever, Byron, who is such a great companion, full of fun and often accompanies her around her local golf course where his behaviour is much admired. He has passed his Gold Certificate with The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme. Pauline’s ambition is to help others to have a well-behaved dog just like “Byron” who is a pleasure to own.
Pauline runs classes ranging from puppies through to advanced pet dog training. She makes home visits for one-to-one training. She is a Kennel Club Accredited Instructor in Companion Dog training, a Member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and has been awarded her City & Guilds NPTC Certificate.
Qualified as a professional dog trainer back in 2010 with the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers, John has been working both as a private trainer and running courses with Cobham Dog Training Club ever since, taking both beginners and intermediate classes. His enthusiasm for training and teaching means dog training is more than just a past time.
He has always owned large dogs and has two Bulldog X-breeds. John is also a graphic designer, company director, husband and father of three.
