Trainers' profiles

Before joining Dogs Trust in 2014 Kirsty worked as a horse riding instructor for 10 years, teaching young children and adults from beginners level right through to experienced level. Not only did Kirsty thrive on sharing her knowledge and helping people reach their personal goals, but she also adopted her handsome late horse Blue, who not only kept her company 7 days a week but also came to work with her and helped her teach!

 

Kirsty started working as a ‘Canine Carer’ for the Dogs Trust in April 2014 when the new Essex rehoming centre. Here she worked her way up to ‘Trainer’ on the Training and Behavioural team, where she could concentrate on helping the dogs that required more support and training before finding their forever homes. During this time Kirsty loved seeing the difference in the dogs she was helping, but also the canine carers she was teaching new skills to and supporting. Again Kirsty couldn’t work with animals without adopting! She has a huge soft spot for bull breeds and within her first few months adopted Buddy a Staffie x Frenchie (x chunk!!), she was his 4th owner at only 11 months old. Less than 2 years later she ‘fostered’ an emaciated Frenchie Dexter (Lil DD) who she’s never taken back, he is now also a chunk and loves his big bro to pieces! Despite always expecting her 3rd  adoption to be a Mastiff, those that have worked with her have their bets it will be a rescue chihuahua as they unexpectedly always won her over at the centre!

 

Before moving to Dog School Kirsty spent a lot of her time in 1-2-1’s with owners that had adopted a dog from Dogs Trust but needed further support and help with training and behaviour. Kirsty felt a huge amount of satisfaction seeing how she was helping owners not only bond with their new 4 legged family member, but also helping them to understand each other better and overcome training difficulties together. This lead her to becoming a Senior Coach for Dog School London where she helped lots of dog’s and owners better understand each other, benefits of positive training, dog body language and how to give their dogs an enriching, happy life. After nearly a year and a half at Dog School London Kirsty is very excited to become Head Coach at Dog School Berkshire. She is very passionate about creating a relaxed environment where training your dog is always fun, interactive and interesting for everyone involved.

Before joining Dog School Berkshire, Chloe worked at a local Farm Park developing her customer service skills as well as growing her love for animals. Her love for dogs started when she rescued her 6-month-old, now late, Collie X German Shepard in 2000. They formed a close bond and Chloe is eager to help others build a strong and lasting relationship with their dogs. 

 

Chloe has always been a supporter of animal welfare charities, particularly Dogs Trust and when she saw the chance to become part of the Coaching Team, she knew she had to seize the opportunity. She is looking forward to combining something she loves whilst making a difference to families and their dogs. 

 

In her spare time Chloe enjoys horse riding and dancing. She is looking to adopt a rescue dog in the coming months. 

Olivia previously worked with horses and decided to study Animal Behaviour and Welfare at the University of the West of England to further her knowledge. It was through her degree she realised she wanted a career working with dogs and training her Cocker Spaniel, Mia confirmed this.

 

Before joining Dogs Trust, Olivia worked at another Rescue and Rehoming Centre where she enjoyed positive, force free training and preparing the dogs for their forever homes. This is what led her to Dogs Trust Dog School, to help dogs and owners bond, settle in their forever homes and provide them with long lasting, life skills which are fun to learn!
