Trainers' profiles

Leigh has worked for Dogs Trust for 3 years, having previously been a Coach at Dog School Essex before moving over to Dog School Kent as the Senior Coach. She is currently studying towards her Association of Pet Dog Trainers membership and a foundation degree in Canine Behaviour and Training. She is currently owned by two yellow Labradors, Freddie and Barney and a tiny collie called Jessie.

Ceri’s career with Dogs Trust started in back in 2015 in the role of Canine Carer. Ceri quickly became interested in learning more about canine behaviour and began studying for a diploma course.  In 2017, Ceri left the kennels and joined the Dog School team in Kent. She has recently begun a degree course in Canine Behaviour and Training and hopes to apply this knowledge, along with previous experience, to the role of Coach.

In 2016, Ceri adopted a fluffy, ridiculously photogenic lothario Collie cross named Roger (who makes the best facial expressions in attempts to channel Antonio Banderas). Needless to say, Ceri's love affair with Collies had well and truly begun – but Ceri won’t say no to a gorgeous English Bull Terrier either!

I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2017 with a degree in Bio-Veterinary Science. Animals are my passion and I love helping others better understand their pets and establish a strong bond with their new best friend.


I adopted my gorgeous black Labrador, Coco, from Dogs Trust Canterbury and she is my pride and joy. She fitted into our family straight away and, if not a bit cheeky at times,  she is the best companion, especially if you have some love and a treat to hand!

Dog School Kent We love teaching our owners fun and easy enrichment activities for their dogs. Here we have scattered some food in the ballpit so Jef has to sniff and snuffle to find it! Enrichment doesn't have to be expensive, just requires some imagination! #letsgetcreative⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #cockerpoo #puppy #ilovepuppies #enrichment #ballpit #snuffle #fun #cute #ilovedogs #ilovemyjob #dogtrainer #dogstrust #dogschoolkent #adogisforlife #adifl #weeklyfluff #dogsofinstagram #instapet #instadog #petstagram
