Elaine specialises in behaviour work with dogs that are reactive to other dogs.
Elaine is Senior Instructor and Behaviour Practitioner at Dog Learning Zone which she started in 2008 with an ethos for compassionate dog training and behaviour. Using progressive, motivational methods the centre offers a range of training or behaviour improvement for puppies and adult dogs.
Before launching the training centre Elaine studied for her professional qualifications with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training gaining a National Training Instructor’s Certificate and a Certificate in Advanced Canine Behaviour. She is a strong advocate of life-long learning and enjoys researching, studying and extending her professional development in canine behaviour and related issues. Elaine is also an agility instructor and a registered trainer with the charity Dog Aid helping disabled owners to train their own pet dog as an assistance dog.
Elaine has extensive experience gained from working with a vast variety of dogs; she can help with a range of training and behaviour issues but specialises in behaviour work with dogs that are reactive to other dogs.
Dog Learning Zone is one of the few behaviour centres in the UK running small specialist group classes exclusively for reactive dogs.
The centre also offers fun group classes in Puppy Life Skills, Junior Puppy and Games to Connect lessons for adult dogs, together with clicker training, canine Tellington TTouch, agility training and specialist Therapeutic Agility for dogs with behaviour or social issues. Throughout the year Elaine organises a number of educational and fun events or workshops to support the continuing learning of dog owners.
Elaine is passionate about dogs; she currently shares her life with a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever called Merlot, a rescue Springer Spaniel cross called Bucks Fizz and a re-homed crossbreed who came to her with behavioural issues but who is now a very lovely little dog.
