ABOUT ME: KERRY SOUTH MAPDT 00147

Learn to think like your dog and communicate with them more effectively

I am a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers APDT 01477, Trainer Member of INTODogs (Association of Intuitive Training of Dogs and Owners) and ICAN (International Companion Animal Network). I trained with Karen Yeandle, a highly qualified and experienced Trainer, Behaviourist, Tutor and Published Author and have also studied Sarah Whitehead’s Think Dog Education courses, IMDT - Steve Mann's 'The Exercises' and various Canine Principles Courses including 'Canine Bonding and Play'. I am also Canine First Aid Trained and currently studying a Level 5 Diploma in Canine Behaviour, and an Accredited Certificate in Canine Nutrition and Health.

 

APDT (UK) and the Association of INTODogs members are obliged to keep their education up-to-date meaning I am working with the most up to date research and practical skills. The APDT assesses all members according to a strict criteria which ensures they have appropriate skills to teach dog training. I keep myself updated in relation to learning theory, and science based training methods, through ongoing study and attendance at seminars, workshops and webinars, in order to offer our clients the most up to date, reward based training. I aim to help bridge the gap between humans and their canine companions so they are both speaking the same language.

I also specialise in working with children and teaching them how to train and interact with their pet dog, I have a wealth of experience with children, having two of my own, plus spending two years studying to ​be a Teacher and working in numerous primary schools. I am also a trainer for Pawsable who specialise in owner trained assistance dogs, working mainly with children and adults with autism.

I believe that sharing our homes with a pet is an amazing and rewarding experience, but also a responsibility, not a luxury. Training your pet properly will lead you to a greater understanding of your dog, and I firmly believe in the human-pet relationship being one of mutual understanding and respect. I immerse you fully in the training process, and I find that the humans end up learning as much, if not more, than their dogs. Call to find out more about my unique approach to training.
