Kirsty is an experienced and fully qualified dog behaviourist / psychologist and has a BA (hons) degree with Middlesex University.
Kirsty is also a qualified dog massage therapist and is a member of the Association of Merishia Therapists.
Kirsty runs a successful drop in clinic which is based in Morecambe, Lancashire. Kirsty also attends home visits in the Lancashire and South Cumbria regions. Locations are included on the training page.
As well as her behaviour clinic and home visits Kirsty also runs three dog training classes, which focus on dog socialisation and training for all types of dogs. For the dog that wants to progress beyond the initial training classes Kirsty offers advanced training and fun agility and flyball classes. Childrens classes are available at certain times, encouraging children to interact with their family pet.
Kirsty's key focus is to use modern training to help both people and their dogs to interact better with one another, in the family unit and whilst out walking or in a public environment.
Kirsty has had a lifetime of experience working and caring for animals including working for two RSPCA branch rescue centres, training Siberian Husky dogs in the French Alps and supervising at a Kennels and Cattery.
Kirsty still has a close relationship with the RSPCA and is the psychologist at two RSPCA centres and Wolfwood Animal Rescue in Lancaster, where she helps to rehabilitate and train rescue dogs to help them find a home.
Kirsty also does referrals for local veterinary practices in the area.
As a canine massage therapist Kirsty treats all types of dogs who have various problems such as muscle injuries and sprains, damaged nerves, poor blood circulation arthritic pains and dogs with a nervous disposition. Treatment can also be for fun, as it can help relax and calm your dog. Massage therapy can be used alongside veterinary treatment.
