We are very excited to announce that our fabulous Senior Coach Lizzie Ashton recently completely her assessment to be a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, and now joins Head Coach Gemma in being an APDT Member!
The Association of Pet Dog Trainers offers pet dog owners a guarantee of quality when looking for a puppy and dog training class in their area as all members are required to be assessed and adhere to their code of practice – details can be found at www.apdt.co.uk.
Lizzie graduated from the University of Bristol in 2016 and joined Dog School Sussex in March last year. She has been working toward the APDT membership for many months! Lizzie sailed through the assessment (as we knew she would)!
If you have met Lizzie you will know that she is very experienced, a great laugh and at the same time friendly and compassionate to all dogs and their owners! Lizzie loves to keep our classes current, fun and interactive. She is always on the look out for new distractions that we can use in our classes to help socialise and build confidence to those puppies coming into our classes!
Here are some pictures of Lizzie hard at work over the last year…
If you would like to meet Lizzie and be part of one of our Dog School or just want some more information about our classes please contact Dog School Sussex on 01273 466977 or email: SussexDogSchool@dogstrust.org.uk
