Christine and Her Humble Beginnings
She started grooming and training dogs when she was a teenager. Her first dog was a black miniature poodle named Johnny. She got him from a lady groomer who lived down the road. The woman did not have room for the dog anymore so she gave him to Christine.
Christine took him to training classes every week and groomed him every day. The groomer gave him his beauty treatment every 6-8 weeks. Christine started to help by bathing and brushing Johnny. Loving every bit of it, she considered a career in the canine industry.
At the local dog club, Christine learned how to train dogs using different methods. She would constantly update herself on new training methods to better understand dogs and to improve her craft. Ultimately, she learned that dogs not only enrich our lives as companions but also touch our lives as service or therapy dogs.
Christine uses praise and reward methods for all dogs. She believes that choke collars and electric shock collars have no place in an educated and science-based training environment. Once the dog has been conditioned, she uses the clicker training method as it allows the dog to learn more quickly.
Christine teaches owners about how their dogs learn, read body language and communicate with each other. She assists dog owners so they understand their pups better and achieve a special relationship built on trust and understanding.
Whilst in the UK, she taught grooming and dog behaviour at two of the largest further education institutions in Dorset for many years after gaining her certification from City & Guilds 775/776 in 1991. She also ran her own grooming and training and agility schools back then.
Christine has exhibited at Crufts and numerous dog shows at all levels in the UK. She has also worked in rescue centres, where she rehabilitated dogs that have been severely traumatised in the hands of abusive owners.
I have had tremendous delight in seeing these dogs successfully adopted into their own families and having had the rest of their lives filled with love.
