South Lincolnshire Centre Trainer

What do my team appreciate about me?

The Team at South Lincolnshire describe me as “confident, honest and keen”.  The most important characteristic of our Team is that we simply love dogs! I have worked with horses, farm and wild animals before choosing to pursue a career in dog behaviour and training. I have earned a MSc in Animal Behaviour & Welfare from Queen’s University Belfast. My previous experience includes working with worldwide pet food manufacturer MARS Petcare. The use of positive reinforcement training methods is very successful at MARS and I will continue using it here at Jerry Green Dog Rescue. I try to spend as much time as possible with the dogs and enjoy sharing training methods with the Team and prospective dog owners so that dogs can find their forever homes as soon as possible.

What’s important to me about my role at Jerry Green Dog Rescue?

My main goal as a trainer is to improve dogs’ behaviour to make them as happy and adoptable as possible. Then they can find a loving home and reduce their time in kennels. We all know that a dog’s poor behaviour can stem from owners who are not aware of a dog’s needs. Sharing this information and training with prospective owners can help to increase the number of successful rehomings. Dogs are gentle, patient and resilient creatures.  It is our job here at Jerry Green Dog Rescue at South Lincolnshire to make the dogs as comfortable and happy as possible, whilst finding them loving homes as quickly as possible.

Once dogs have found a home, it is important to me that they settle in well and continue to develop. As centre trainer, I offer behavioural support to all adopters and fosterers to make the match work.

What are my goals for the charity?

To continue to provide expert behavioural advice, training and support for dogs and their human companions.  By writing weekly “training tips” for a local newspaper as part of my role, I hope to not only entertain dog owners in the area but also to raise the profile of Jerry Green Dog Rescue a knowledgeable charity.
