Trainers

Meet the trainers:

🐾Intermediate – 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 concentrate on the intermediate and advanced, however I’m 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.

 🐾Puppy and Advanced – Lucinda: 

I first joined Silverthorn Dog Training club back in 2014 when my mum had a puppy and asked me if I could train him. I worked him through puppy foundation through to gold and every so often, he’ll make a return to see his friends. Although I don’t own a dog of my own (yet!), I have always been so passionate about the fur-babies which is why I jumped at the opportunity to become a committee member and then train both the advanced class (working towards silver and gold) as well as the puppy class. I am first aid trained.

 🐾Beginners- Kate: 

I am currently training the beginners class at 6pm. I had my first dog when I was 17 years old. I worked with my dog through the puppy foundation, bronze, silver and gold at the silverthorn dog club. When he sadly passed away it was too painful to replace him. I am now 40 years old and I’ve always only gone to the silverthorn dog club. Where I have attended many classes from puppy class to the advance class. My dog Toby currently trains my dog in the intermediate class and he is working towards his gold. I also hold a doggy first aid certificate. I believe its good for dogs to come to a place where they can socialise & train in a controlled environment. Look forward to meeting you one day and working through ur bronze good citizenship.
