Hello, I’m Nina and I love dogs! I grew up around dogs and now I am blessed to have two of my own.
As a qualified dog trainer, I am living my dream of being able to work with dogs and their owners. I am an accredited member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT – https://www.imdt.uk.com), a leading body which teaches and promotes the very best understanding of the techniques required to train dogs.
All IMDT trainers adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and only use proven science based dog training techniques.
I use only positive methods of training which build trust and enhance the bond between you and your dog.
The IMDT is a signatory to the UK Dog Behaviour & Training Charter. The Charter provides assurances to both members of the public and other professional bodies that the dog trainer they employ has been checked, supported and monitored by a reputable accrediting member organisation.

As an Assessed and Qualified Member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, I am proud to display the UK Dog Behaviour & Training Charter symbol.
I am proud to announce that I am now a Gold Member of the Pet Professional Network: 
The Pet Professional Network is the first international business support organisation and educational platform for kind, ethical and trusted pet professionals.
Working in collaboration with world class training and behavioural institutes, business and mindset coaches, they help raise the standards of animal welfare providing members with a safe community to grow or expand their business and connect with like-minded professionals.
I have been awarded Gold Membership after gaining a specific level of skill or competence in developing my business and a high level of skill in my field of work.
This is awarded to only the most dedicated Members after a minimum of one year’s commitment to being part of our community and taking an active role in supporting others in our industry.
You can be confident in the knowledge that as a member of the Pet Professional Network, I have been personally assessed and can use their ‘seal of approval’ to show I’m a recommended professional. This reassures pet owners that I am kind, ethical and trusted, dedicated to giving pet owners the very best long term support.
I hold an Open College Network (OCN) Level Three Principles of Dog Training and Behaviour qualification and I am a member of the British Veterinary Behaviour Association:  https://www.bvba-org.co.uk
I regularly attend courses and read books and papers to increase my knowledge about dogs and their behaviour.  I am formally studying canine behaviour and I am enrolled in the IMDT Canine Behaviour – Consultations, Foundations and Functions of Behaviour correspondence course (Level 4 OCN Accreditation).
I am fully insured, Disclosure & Barring Service checked (clear) and Canine First Aid Certified.
In my spare time I volunteer at Glendee Dog Rescue, where I assist by walking the dogs and also spend time with them individually in an exercise paddock to assess their behaviour and well-being.
I am committed to teaching you how to train your dog using force free, innovative, science and reward based techniques, which deliver results while safeguarding the welfare and happiness of your dog. My fun training methods will give your dog a solid foundation of behaviours which can be expanded and developed.
