Sue WatkinsBased in: Somerset

Specialist in Working Gundogs.

Sue’s genuine passion for dogs came from growing up surrounded by a littler of Labrador puppies, and she’s since become the owner of seven dogs herself!

Having worked for a Greyhound rescue charity, Sue’s experience of training started very early on, and she expanded her knowledge of dogs’ health when she set up her own dog nutrition business and became qualified with a Certificate in Companion Animal Nutrition (QCF Level 3).

Sue loves to watch dogs and their owners progressing in their relationship, developing a bond, building their confidence and learning positive, science-based methods.  Sue is happy to work with any breed of dog but particularly loves Labradors.

Offering one-to-one home visits and training in very small groups in a secure training paddock, Sue regularly updates her knowledge and experience by attending seminars and workshops.

Sue is fully insured and DBS cleared. All training adheres to the APDT code of practice.
