About Me

 
My name is Deborah Coles and I have been a professional dog trainer since 2004. I am an experienced instructor and a full member of the UK Association of Pet Dog Trainers (no 01051).  Full membership of the UK APDT requires successful completion of both written and practical assessment, on going study and a commitment to use kind, fair and effective dog training methods.
 

I am also registered as a full member with the UK Registry of Canine Behaviourists, who work closely with veterinary surgeons to help clients and their dogs overcome a variety of behavioural problems.
 

I graduated in 2011 with a foundation degree in Canine Behaviour and Training, and to enhance and build on my theoretical knowledge, I regularly attend seminars and education days to keep up to date with new innovations in dog training and behaviour.
 

I am also a registered instructor with Dog AID (Assistance in Disability).  Dog Aid is a registered charity that helps people with physical disabilities to train their own dogs.
