Pet Perfection – Dog training and behaviour specialist in Kent & Sussex
Having grown up around animals of all shapes and sizes, I always knew it would be a career I wanted to pursue.
At home, I live with my 2 Boston Terriers, a hand-reared cat and a rescue tortoise. In my spare time, I participate in fun and competitive agility with my dogs and cani-cross running! I regularly attend practical training workshops with my own dogs too!
“We all own pets for many reasons, but I believe that regardless of why or what we expect to gain from their company, living with a pet should always be a fun and happy experience for us & them.”
The unique bond we have with our pets is so highly rewarding and enjoyable, and I hope that Pet Perfection can help many people create or rediscover this – benefiting from the best companionship with their pet.
I am a qualified and insured member of CAPBT – COAPE Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers. CAPBT are a worldwide organisation with the largest number of qualified behaviourists working on veterinary referral.

I have an Advanced Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour & Training – passed with Distinction (COAPE). This is nationally accredited at degree level – CERTA QCF Level 5. In 2017, I started postgraduate study in ‘Clinical Animal Behaviour’, my goal is to reach Master’s degree level over the next few years.
I am currently enrolled with the Kennel Club’s scheme for dog trainers and instructors (KCAI) and working towards full accreditation. COAPE is also the preferred educational provider for the Kennel Club. Complimentary to my animal studies, I also have a certificate in human psychodynamic counselling skills.
As well as running Pet Perfection, I am also a Registered Veterinary Nurse and have worked in this field for over 11 years. I continue to work within veterinary practice on a locum basis. In addition to this, I also work for COAPE as a behaviour advisor for Nestlé Purina’s “Pets at Work” scheme and volunteer for Dog A.I.D as an assistance dog trainer.
