Trainers

Meet the trainers:

🐾Puppy Class – Sherrie:

I first attended Silverthorn Dog Training Club in 2009 and became the puppy class instructor in 2013.
I have owned dogs all of my life and have many years experience in training, breeding and showing.
At present I have four dogs who have achieved varying levels of the Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme, two are working towards their Silver award, one is working towards Gold and one has already achieved the gold award.
I am a qualified canine first aider, hold an up to date human first aid certificate and I am also qualified to assess the Kennel Club Bronze Award.
I am always available after my class to answer any questions and give further advice if necessary.

🐾Beginner class – Alan: 

I have been attending Silverthorn Dog Training Club since 2011 have been through all four of the classes with my dog as a member. I am new to the club as an instructor but my many years of training classes and working with my and other dogs in the classes has given me a good knowledge of how to get the best from dogs. Being firm but fair, clear and concise commands to the dog combined with patience and reward based training works.

The dogs just want clear leadership with love and care thrown in. We aim to help the dog owners to be that leader.

🐾Intermediate and Advanced classes – Janet:

I have been a member of Silverthorn Dog Training Club since 2003 and an instructor since 2006. During my many years at the club I have taught all four classes but now I purely concentrate on the intermediate and advanced. However, I am always happy to cover the puppy and beginner classes when necessary.
I currently own five dogs, one is working towards the Bronze award, one is working towards the Silver and three are working towards the Gold award. My previous two dogs both achieved the Gold award at Silverthorn.
I hold a canine first aid certificate and am also a Kennel Club Bronze Assessor.
