I have always loved dogs and grew up with collies and spaniels. My own first dog, Ness, was an eight month old rescue dog, She was shy, and I wanted to build a bond and learn to communicate with her so took her to training classes. A few years later, Sam, a nine month rescue border collie joined our family. Sam finds life challenging and through him I discovered some great dog trainers and the world of positive training. After studying for a social work degree, I realised that I spent more time relating the theories that I learnt to Sam rather than people, and on qualifying promptly went to work for a local rescue centre. Since then I have qualified as a dog trainer with the IMDT, set up a dog training and walking business, and continue to study to increase my knowledge. I have been shadowing Carolyn's classes for a few months I was delighted when she asked me to join the West Cornwall Dog Training team and I now run Love Your Paws classes in St Just.

Agility classes and workshops

Agility classes are run in St Just by Amanda Cain of Cain's Canines who has been runing agility classes for a number of years. You can find more about Amanda here and contact her on this number 07977 569974. Here's a bit about her.

My dog Oodle, who is a Cavapoo, needed something to “do” when she was re-homed at the age of 7 months, her energy was high and was always getting up to mischief. So I found agility with Carolyn at St Just. After her first year of training I decided to register her as an Activity dog with the Kennel Club and enter a local competition and she hasn't looked back. Successes include coming 3rd in the national finals in the UKA steeple chase held at Clevedon near Bristol. My second dog Will-e, a Toy Poodle, completed some lovely agility runs in his first season including some 1st places and I have high hopes of much more success to come. In 2014 I began assisting at classes at West Cornwall Dog Training and my interest in dog training grew. I now run agility classes as Cain's Canines in St Just and have gained IMDT membership.
