My name is Alison and I’ve been studying, training and working dogs since 2010 (though I’ve had pet dogs for 20 years). I know what it’s like to live with dogs. I know some things come easy and sometimes things just don’t go as you expect. 

I understand frustration, disappointment and exasperation! I’ve been through it, I know it can be tough and I’ll help you get through without passing judgement: we all start somewhere after all.

I currently have three dogs called Bob, Peg and Mac: two are working dog crossbreeds from rescue and one a Working Cocker Spaniel I chose as a pup in 2017.

I'm very proud to be:


One of Sarah Whitehead's
