My name is Davina, founder of K9 For Your Dog, dog training and behaviour consultant. I live in Cambridgeshire with my husband and our three dogs, Charlie and Tiffany both black Labradors and our Poodle Princess Willow, who is also black! (apparently they do come in other colours!!).
I have always had dogs in my life, but it was only as I got a bit older that I found myself in the position to be able to follow my real passion of not only being a dog owner but being able to understand dogs behaviour and their training needs.
In 2006 I was introduced to a very good friend of mine who is a dog trainer and behavourist and she invited me to assist in her training classes. It was at a similar time that I also signed up to be a volunteer dog walker at Wood Green Animal Shelter in Godmanchester. I was also a volunteer member of their Hands on Team which takes education out into the local communities assisting with microchipping, parasite treatment and advice on feeding,training or anything else they can help with.
My interest in dog training grew and I enrolled on several one day workshops and seminars to help to further my education.
In 2009 I decided to take this one step further and attended and successfully completed the APDT Dog Trainers Course, achieving a foundation certificate as a Dog Training Instructor, and then in 2011 I completed this training to achieve the Advanced Dog Trainers Certificate.
In 2015 I qualified as a Full member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.
I am also a qualified dog behaviourist with a diploma in canine behaviour and training.
I continue my training and education by regularly attending workshops and training days with The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and various other dog training organisations with qualified trainers.
