Dog School West Midlands

Welcome to Dog School West Midlands

We are a dynamic trio offering family training sessions for dogs old and young.  Currently, we offer classes from both Evesham and Kenilworth Rehoming Centres as well as Birmingham locations.

We are passionate about the work we do with people and dogs from all walks of life.  We seek to provide support and care to owners, enabling them to learn more about their dogs needs and the use of positive training methods, to equip their canine companion with the skills for a successful and happy family life.  After all, we believe a happy dog makes a happy owner!

We offer a fun, accessible and interactive environment to support deepening the bond between owner and dog.

Trainers' profiles

Gina completed her Masters of research degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare at the University of West England and Bachelors degree in Animal Science with Care and Management at Canterbury Christ Church University. Whilst studying for her undergraduate degree Gina spent a lot of her free time gaining voluntary experience in a variety of animal care roles, including at a wildlife hospital, with a water vole captive breeding project and at a small independent animal sanctuary. Gina also worked during the holiday seasons at the largest boarding kennels in Leicestershire, where she worked with a wide variety of dog breeds and temperaments in a professional capacity.

 

Since graduating from her first degree Gina has worked within several animal rescue environments, starting with a Blue Cross rehoming centre where she primarily worked with the dogs, to a year at an RSPCA centre working with cats, to a role in both kennels and education at Cheltenham Animal Shelter. Gina enjoys working with all animals, especially in a training and behaviour capacity, however, her speciality and passion lies with pet and rescue dogs. During her free time, Gina can be found either walking her family’s dogs (working type beagle and Labradors, as well as a border collie and rescue Saluki cross greyhound) or in her horse’s field, often with a dog in tow.

 

Gina is very excited to start her role as a Senior Coach and is looking forward to meeting you all.   

Kimberley has been working as a Dog Trainer for Evesham Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre for the past year where she has helped to rehabilitate and rehome some of the longer term dogs, as well as provide training advice and help to new adopters.  

 

Prior to this she worked with Guide Dogs for the Blind as a trainer after previously completing a FDSC in Animal Welfare and Behaviour at University West of England, where she won the award for top student for all her hard work throughout the course.

 

Kimberley owns a beautiful but very nervous rescue Lurcher called Angel who after a difficult start to life has had to overcome a lot of fears - including other dogs, new people and coping alone.  Kimberley, therefore, has a particular passion for working with nervous dogs and helping with their confidence.
