Hi, I'm Sorrel, a qualified dog trainer working in East Sheen, Barnes, Richmond, Wimbledon, Kew and Putney. I'm proud to be a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and a certified Pro Dog Trainer. I hold the Dog Training Instructor’s Course Foundation and Advanced Certificates from the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and the Think Dog Certificate.
I am a member of the Pet Professional Guild, the Pet Professional Network and supporter of the International Companion Animal Network.
I regularly attend courses and seminars in order to keep up with the latest techniques in modern dog training and the science of how dogs learn. I also learn a great deal from dogs themselves, especially my two springer spaniels.
My background is many years of law in the City. When a rescue dog joined our family in 2013 and I became a dog owner, I felt out of my depth and also slightly bewildered by the volume of often contradictory advice given to dog owners.
So I started to read and go on courses to learn as much as I could about dogs. Over time, I found myself on a journey from puzzled dog owner to modern dog trainer and able to distinguish between myths and the science of how dogs learn. My experience as a dog owner and subsequent thorough training and qualifications mean that I can tell you what you need to know and help you train your dog.
