Dogskool

Courteney Garsden

Instructor

“At present, I own a Pug called Pablo.  I also have 5 other family dogs who keep me busy.  Pablo and I love to take part in obedience, flyball, agility and parkour.  Any spare time we have is spent learning new tricks and exploring new walks.  As well as this, I enjoy pet photography, so you can always find me taking photos of dogs somewhere!  My deaf Bulldog Merlin loves to take part in Dogskool’s fun classes every week and these have helped him grow massively in his training.

I started my dog training journey in 2014 as a volunteer for Bulldog Rescue and Rehoming.  Since then, I have gained a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management and then went to University to complete a FdSc in Canine Behaviour and Training.  I am also a fully qualified Canine Myotherapist.

As well as being a part of Dogskool, I am a professional Dog Walker and a Trustee at French Bulldog Rescue GB. Along with behaviour and training, I work closely in rescuing and rehabilitating dogs who have complex medical and behavioural needs.  It is always rewarding to see dogs grow in confidence through training. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a dog and owner learning together through positive, fun training.”
