"Growing dogs' confidence through training and play"

About your trainer - Kirsty Lewis (DTC-CDT)

"A trained dog is a happy dog" - this is a phrase I heard as a child. It has stuck with me and I believe it is as important now as it was in the 1970s. Training is fun. Training is life. Training gives our dogs the best chance in our modern world.

Helping others achieve a happy dog, confident in its own abilities and in the world around them is my training goal. Through dog sports and 121 manners training I continue to see my clients and their dogs' confidence grow and flourish. I use modern ethical training methods and encourage handlers to respect and work with the dog in front of them.

I train my own dogs and love competing in agility and hoopers. Everyday is a learning opportunity and my dogs and I have the best time developing our skills together and demonstrating such at various country shows throughout the year.
