About Me

Owner & Founder of FieldLines Dog Training

My aim is to ensure dog ownership is an enjoyable, fulfilling and rewarding experience. It’s proven that dogs can significantly improve our health and well-being with studies showing that dog owners live longer, healthier lives. However that said, it’s vitally important that your new companion has that right training otherwise you may in turn create additional unnecessary stress.

I truly believe that training your puppy and encouraging good manners and behaviour right from the start is crucial to avoid problems in the future. We know that puppies are like sponges and therefore if we can teach them how we would like them to behave from the onset, it will make adolescence a much smoother ride and ultimately you’ll have a well rounded companion for life.

My Journey

My journey started back in 2010 when I took my passion for animals, in particular dogs, to the next level. I began supporting at local dog training classes gaining vital hands on experience. To compliment the practical skills, I attended courses, workshops, seminars and completed accredited qualifications gaining a Diploma in Canine Psychology. In 2013 I started to run local classes and carry out private one-to-one sessions.

Now with over 10 years experience in the field, I am working professionally, taking a variety dog training classes as well as working for a world leading assistance dog charity, Medical Detection Dogs, training dogs to detect disease.

I have gained valuable knowledge working with a variety of different breeds, from Dobermans to Daschands. I have vast experience in training people to train their dogs and therefore get the very best from their four legged friends.  I get immense satisfaction observing the bond and relationship flourish between people and their dogs.

My fiance and I own three dogs, two black Labradors, Jett and Grace and a liver Working Cocker Spaniel, Wilfred who are very much part of the family. I work the dogs in the field throughout the season, enjoy taking part in gundog events and attending country shows over the summer months.

How do I know if the dog training classes are held near me?

We have two main training venues, Bledlow Ridge Village Hall and a Training Field, both locations are just 10-20 mins from Princes Risborough, High Wycombe, Marlow, Lane End, Stoke Mandaville, Holmer Green, Hughenden, Stokenchurch, Chinnor and 20-30 mins from Beaconsfield & Aylesbury.

Now that you know a little about me, I do hope that I can help you and be part of your journey to have a sociable, successful and enjoyable future with your dog. l look forward to hearing from you in due course.

With warm regards,
