Keeping knowledge up to date and in line with current scientific understanding of Dog Behaviour and Human Learning is important to help you get the most effective coaching for success.  
 
I regularly attend seminars and workshops presented by International and Australian experts in the field of Animal Behaviour and Learning Theory to improve my knowledge and skills in teaching.
 
I also hold a current Senior First Aid Certificate from St John Ambulance and hold Professional Indemnity Insurance.
