Trainers' profiles

Michelle has worked for Dogs Trust since August 1999. She started as a Canine Carer when Dogs Trust Merseyside originally opened. Michelle has seven dogs, four of which are Dogs Trust rescue dogs, as well as 3 rescue rabbits, two guinea pigs and a rescue mouse!


Michelle has a Higher Education Certificate in Companion Animal Welfare and Behaviour Rehabilitation from Bristol University and is a member of both the ABTC and the APDT. 

Matt has worked for several rehoming charities including at Dogs Trust Merseyside as a Dog Trainer. He has his own Dogs Trust rescue at home - a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross called Joe (or Joe-Bear most of the time).


Matt has an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management and enjoys keeping up to date with training as much as possible through seminars, workshops and courses.

Lorna has been employed at Dogs trust in various roles in the last 3 years. Initially as a contact centre agent advising the public on rehoming procedures, and then as a canine carer, handling and training dogs daily. She regularly brings dogs home from the rehoming centre for a well needed break from kennels, and to assess how they may cope in a home environment, in readiness for their forever home!

Lorna has attended Dogs Trust courses and seminars that have developed her dog training skills and her understanding of dog welfare issues. She also has a Level 3 Diploma in Animal Management. 

Lorna is passionate about dogs and owners gaining an understanding of each other and bonding through reward based training. She is now thrilled to be able to facilitate and coach this at Dog School!
