About Me

I am dog trainer who spends her days teaching people to train dogs along the South coast of Hampshire and West Sussex. Whether that is teaching people to work with dogs or running my own private lessons, I love my job helping people and their dogs.

I have had over 30 German Shepherds and currently have 2 rescue dogs who have had a challenging time and the opportunity to help over 12,000 dogs has enabled me to help them. 

How can I help you?

Important notice to all our clients regarding the current situation involving Coronavirus-Covid 19. 


I have introduced some free training and help to the website for you to use and so get in touch with any questions about this.  As with all training, make sure you feeling well before your start.

These are unprecedented times and I have attempted to give you plenty of challenges to work through - but do remember to rest and keep well.  This wont be a sprint, so take it slowly and enjoy every day you have with your dog.

Keep in touch and if you can, please share my Facebook page with all your friends and family.

Together we can get through this and I cannot wait to we all meet up again with our dogs.

You can now book one to one sessions with me at selected private venues to support your efforts to continue to give your dog some normality. As we move back to the new normal, our dogs will have new things to get used to. 

Over the past few months I have been working with many of you on a one to one basis and thank you for supporting us.  I will gradually introduce some group sessions but have found that the dogs who work with me on a personal basis have suffered less stress and learnt more so encourage you to contact me to continue these at the same lockdown prices.  Three sessions for just over the cost of one private lesson is a bargain and I plan to continue these throughout the summer to make sure that no one is left behind.  Contact me today for help with your new puppy or rescue.

Have been with Walkabout for over 3 years now, constantly reviewing Nelsons reactivate behaviour, he only grumbles occasionally, and has learnt to settle. So sign up to the classes at Queen Elizabeth Park, it’s all about calmness and relaxing around others, a win situation for dogs and owners. We do the scent work classes great brain work training for all dogs, thank you Walkabout
