Fiona works at Cosford Dog Training instructing all the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme levels. Fiona also instructs the elements of Working Trials.
Fiona is a resident dog trainer at Cosford Dog Training working alongside the head trainer. She has instructed there since 2013. Fiona believes that all training should be done in a positive way where the key to success lies in consistency. She instructs on a wide range of courses which make up the Kennel Club Good Citizens Dog Scheme, Puppy, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The exercises that make up the courses are trained in a wide variety of ways putting them into real life situations. Training is focused on establishing a balanced partnership with your dog using motivational rewards and effective communication. Another area that Fiona instructs on is Working Trials - Intro and CD levels and also Tracking up to Level 1 of the UK Tracking Dog Association.
Fiona has trained her own springer spaniels through all the levels of the Kennel Club scheme and has also competed in working trials tests, qualifying and been placed 3rd on both occasions.
At Cosford Dog Training you get good technical training supported by homework and written training material, providing you and your dog with a positive training experience. The training is delivered in a professional, but not a military manner. You will learn both technique and the theory behind it that leads to success. Our training aims to develop the bond between you and your dog, because without that bond, all the obedience in the world is a bit hollow.
Success does not happen by accident. It comes about by combining knowledge, skill and hard work. This level of commitment will be provided to you and your dog, but you need to give the same level of commitment.
Whilst it is hard work, the aim is to make the training enjoyable for you and especially for your dog, because you are choosing to attend, Rover isn't. So, let's make sure he's happy whilst learning.
Cosford Dog Training is based on an 8 acre rural site 3 miles from Junction 3 of the M54. There is space to train you and your dog. We have secure training compounds to work in and have an extensive range of specialist equipment for agility training & working trials training. You will work in private, secure areas which are safe for your dog to work out his problems away from other dogs.
