Meet your specialist Border Collie Trainer
Helping you understand your dog so you can enjoy life together
Hi, I’m Gemma
I’m a Border Collie trainer and behaviour specialist dedicated to helping you understand your dog better, so you can get the good behaviour you’ve always wanted from them.
You’re here because you want to get to know your collie better and to have a truly wonderful relationship with them that blossoms as it gets stronger and stronger.
You want a collie you can take out and about to new places, who will make you feel proud rather than embarrassed.
You want to take your collie with you to visit friends and family without having to make excuses for their behaviour or manage those withering looks from your nearest and dearest.
Quite simply, you want the best for your Border Collie.
Well, you’re in the right place! All of those things you’re hoping for are founded on building an incredible relationship with your collie. And I’d love to help you achieve that, so you can go out into the world together and create amazing memories with one another.
Good quality dog training advice should be accessible to everyone.
Border Collies and their crosses can be amazing dogs. But they can also be really hard work too!
That’s why I help collie owners how to teach their dog a brilliant recall so they can enjoy walking anywhere without the worry of them overreacting joggers/ cyclists or other dogs.
My goal is to help you enjoy living with your Border Collie as much as I do with mine. There is nothing I love more than spending time watching them run free when we go out walking together – it’s a great way to relax and unwind after a busy day.
The dogs I grew up with as a child gave me an easy confidence around dogs and a curiosity to learn more about them. Those two beautiful Golden Retrievers, a busy Springer Spaniel and a fiery Yorkshire Terrier, have been responsible for a life-long love affair with dogs that has grown ever stronger with each passing year.
As a child, I loved those early family dogs, but my training of dogs didn’t start until I was a young adult, when my family welcomed two Terrier type Heinz 57’s into our home.
The lessons I learned with those two dogs, and the mistakes I inevitably made along the way, have been invaluable to my dog training knowledge and, perhaps more importantly, to how I help other dog owners just like you!
When you can see things from your dog’s point of view, everything gets better
When you’re in the thick of trying to solve frustrating problems with your collie, it can feel overwhelming and hideously complicated.
The truth is, when we see things from our collie’s point of view, it becomes easy to troubleshoot and adapt to make life significantly better for both of you.
When feelings are running high, and emotions are running the show, it can be incredibly difficult to look at things objectively.
And that’s where I come in. I will help you strip back all the noise to find the root of what’s causing your problems. And guide you through the changes and training that will transform the life you share with your Border Collie.
