Surrey and South London Dog Training and Behaviour
Louise volunteered at a number of small rescue centres, working with dogs, cats, rabbits and rodents, as well as volunteering at a safari park where she worked with penguins, lemurs and squirrel monkeys.
To further her knowledge and interest in animals, she gained a Bachelor of Science (with Honors) in Animal Behaviour at the University of Chester in 2008.
She worked at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home for 10 years, working with thousands of dogs as a behaviour specialist from 2009 to 2019.
Louise became a fully qualified Puppy School tutor in 2010 (www.puppyschool.co.uk). Her classes are fun and relaxed, and the puppies really look forward to the next week of learning.
Louise and Neal currently live with five dogs, two kittens, two rabbits and two budgies. Together Louise and Neal regularly foster dogs and kittens from Battersea and the RSPCA and particularly enjoy hand-rearing newborn puppies and kittens.
Louise is a Kennel Club Accredited Instructor, a registered Animal Training Instructor with The Animal Behaviour and Training Council and a Raw Advisor with Natures Menu.
