Trainers' profiles

Frank currently holds a CertHE from Chester University in Dog Training and has joined us at Dog School Newcastle from 9 years of working at Guide Dogs as a Guide Dog Trainer. This has given him the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills with both dogs and people of varying abilities, in group and 121 settings. Frank has a strong passion for dog training and loves seeing a dog engaged and enjoying the interaction with their owner.

Emma has over two years’ experience working training and caring for a variety of different dog breeds and temperaments. Since graduating in 2015 with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Animal Behaviour and Management, Emma has for the RSPCA’s Felledge Animal Centre as an ACA.

 

Alongside her education and experience it was Emma's own little dog, Yoshi (cutest Border Terrier ever) that was her inspiration to join us at Dog School. He has motivated and inspired Emma to gain more knowledge in dog training and behaviour so that she can not only help pet owners but also herself and Yoshi.

 

Emma spends a lot of her spare time with her horse, Danny, who she is currently clicker training to pick his feet up to help with general husbandry and handling as well as some fun enrichment for him!

 

Emma's favourite areas of dog training are impulse control and scent work. She feels teaching impulse or self-control to a dog provides an overall good foundation for a lot of aspects to training, and it gives them a much better chance of success across other areas of training, such as trick training, lead work and leave it. She thoroughly enjoys scent work as a way to encourage a dog to exhibit natural behaviour’s such as sniffing, tracking and foraging, in a way that is going to provide stimulation, and enrichment.

Rachel has a Bsc(hons) in animal management as well as six years experience working within an animal welfare charity as an Animal Care Assistant. During this time, she has had the opportunity to build up experience working with many different dogs with many personalities.

 

She has a real soft spot for border collies and currently has her own 8 year old border collie called Milo. Rachel's love for training and behaviour began at a young age, going with her grandparents to their local training classes and their 3 border collies.
