Training Supervisor

Verity is highly skilled in the field of behavioural modification, with extensive experience in working with reactive dogs and their handlers to effectively modify unwanted behaviours. Throughout her tenure in the industry, she has had the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients and dogs. Verity believes that it is not only essential to teach the dog the necessary skills, but also to educate the handlers on how to effectively work with their dogs, as this is crucial for achieving the best outcomes.

Verity also has personal experience with owning and living with fearful and aggressive dogs. Her first dog, a Blue Cattle named Yoda, inspired her to develop her skills as a canine trainer.
