Karen - Dog Trainer

Hi, I’m Karen. I live in Totton with my son Connor, my 3 cats and 2 dogs.

I have been around dogs all my life, showing Shetland sheepdogs in my early teens, competing at local shows gaining several rosettes for junior handling. I also have experience of breeding with two of my labs, Charlie & Lunar being the sons of my lovely lab Sadie who sadly died in 2016.

In 2012 I saw an advert for Sandra’s train the trainer course at AA Dog Training (now The National Dog Training Academy), and after completing this course, started helping out with classes as a trainee instructor… I have never looked back and achieved Instructor status in 2013.

As part of the team I continually update my training by attending seminars, conferences and undertaking further training courses. I am a member of Agility 1st, achieving the Recreational Instructor Course in agility in 2017.

I have a real interest in dog health so I am now undertaking a course on dog nutrition.
