Louise started dog training in 2005 with APT Training which was foundered by Polly Thomas. Following Polly’s retirement Louise took over the company early 2017. Louise has been training dogs for over 10 years, and has developed a brilliant training schedule that ensures there is gradual progression between classes, whilst still maintaining the basic learning, therefore ensuring that dogs and owners maintain their unique, well trained relationship.
Louise has always had dogs, right from being a child there were always dogs in the family home. Louise’s passion for dog training started with a German Shepherd called Samson, named after the first German Shepherd Louise met as a child at school. Louise knew Samson was going to be a big dog and wanted to be confident she could handle him both on and off the lead. Louise and Samson has such a great time that her and Samson started doing Working Trials, and Samson won the Slingsby Trophy during a Working Trial holiday. Samson came first and achieved CDex (this means Companion Dog, this is the first test in Working Trials). This spurred Louise on to do more.
Louise has since had more, but equally as amazing German Shepherds, called Delilah and Dexter.
I am happy to announce I have now passed my examinations to be a working trials judge.
