What led you to Positive Response?

I have worked with dogs in the dog behaviour industry for 10 years, having qualified as a vet nurse in 2003, and in recent years have broadened my knowledge to work and train dogs for the assistance dog program. Having a hearing impairment myself, I have taught my beautiful kelpie to also be my ears around my home.

I am excited to be working with a group of people who share my enthusiasm for training, to assist homeowners in forming a closer bond with their family dogs but also to improve people’s quality of life through training and accrediting assistance dogs.
