About Me/Instructor (Cath Schofield)



My passion in life has always been animals. I own an 9 year old labrador called Red, a 10 year old husky cross called Lizzie and an irish setter puppy called Wispa. For at least 15 years I have been instructing pet dog handlers.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training and am a member of the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology's Association of Animal Behaviour Affiliates & Practitioners. I also have a Think Dog Certificate in Canine Behaviour and Training (COAPE) NOCN. For both these qualifications I was tutored by: Dr. Peter Neville DHc BSc (Hons),Val Strong MSc and Robert Falconer-Taylor BVetMed, MRCVS.rus&lola
I was a full time teacher for over ten years prior to becoming an animal behaviourist. This experience along with my own studying and rehabilitation of rescue dogs has given me an excellent background for animal behaviour and training. It is a job that I thoroughly enjoy
