Hey, I'm Nina and I am a full member of the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers), have a level 3 qualification in Canine Behaviour: Learning, Motivation and Reinforcement and am a Bronze UK Sniffer Dog Instructor. I have been studying dog training since the age of 18 and continuing to study with the IMDT and UK Sniffer Dogs. I am also a trainer for Kate Harper Dog Training.
I started my career as a rock climbing instructor spending a lot of time outside and when I wasn't instructing or climbing I was always around people and their dogs.
I have studied many areas of dog behavioural psychology and done courses specifically on resource guarding, separation anxiety and canine aggression and rehabilitation and body language.
I live in Tunbridge Wells and work in the local area covering Crowborough, Eridge, Groombridge, Frant, Wadhurst, Tonbridge and Pembury.

Nina was wonderful in training our 3 month old golden retriever. We ended up learning a lot during our training sessions. Right from heel walking to basic recall and attention sessions everything was done meticulously to perfection. Nina made it so easy to follow, teaching us step by step with right amount of patience. She even taught our puppy some tricks like “selfie” and “bang - acting dead”. We were so happy that we could train under Nina and would like to recommend her to any dog parents. Thanks a lot for everything and can’t wait to start adult dog training sessions with Nina.
We were nervous about finding the right classes - we wanted more than socialisation but not something we felt was too much like doggy boot camp, and Nina provided the perfect mix of fun and learning for our pup. She is responsive to messages, friendly and knowledgeable and amazing with dogs of all shapes and sizes.
I had a really helpful first session with Nina and my 11 month old cocker spaniel, Reggie. She made me feel very relaxed and was lovely with him - he responded immediately to her and we seemed to make significant progress in a short space of time in regard to his being more attentive and less distracted by everything around him. I am looking forward to more sessions and group classes and would be very enthusiastic about recommending Nina - she is lovely!
