I completed a small animal care diploma and a first aid course and then launched my Dog Walking Business! I went on to do a certificate in dog training and started holding online trick training groups mostly attracting owners of Dalmatians and deaf dogs.
In the last couple of years I've been featured or written for a variety of online blogs or magazines including Dogs Monthly Magazine, Puppy Post, and Essentials Magazine!
I've studied with a range of education providers including Canine Principles, Dog Training College and the School of Canine Science whilst working towards my Level Five Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management!
I've also completed practical pet first aid!
My training videos are up to over 200,000 views on social media, and for the past two years I've been nominated for dog walker of the year.
I've even delivered talks in schools all about pets and how to properly care for them, taking my deaf puppy Sherlock with me.
In 2019 I held my first local charity Dog Show and networking event, raising £600 in one afternoon!
Towards the end of the year I helped set up The Deaf Dog Experts, a team of two trainers specialising in giving deaf dog owners advice up and down the country!
I also launched my training classes, and a whole set of homeschooling courses including one especially for Children.
ABOUT YOUR TRAINER
Hello, my name is Jayde and I am the trainer at That Dog!
I have been Dog Walking for four years now and have been Dog Training for just as long!
I started trick training with Logan, my deaf Dalmatian because it was something I enjoyed doing, but also because I had read numerous online blogs and articles claiming them to be untrainable and I was determined that I would prove people wrong!
I started my YouTube Channel, began writing for websites such as Victoria Stilwells 'It's me or the Dog' positively.com and monthly blogs for 4knines.com.
I'd always wanted a career working with animals and have completed a variety of work experience placements including at a vets, and also working with fish and a wide range of reptiles in specialist pet shops. Some of the species I've worked with include snakes, lizards, rats, rabbits, ferrets, ducks, birds of prey, coatis and porcupines!
I began assisting at a Dog Training club and was there almost two years, going every week to help in a variety of classes. I loved it so much I decided that's what I was going to do!
I became a member of the Pet Professional Guild, and a qualified trick training instructor with Do More With Your Dog!
