Hannah has always had a keen interest in animals with a particular passion for dogs. She has experience volunteering and fostering for a local dog rescue and currently lives with two rescued street dogs and a tortoise.
Hannah has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour, a Bachelor’s degree in Zoology and a Professional Diploma (Level 5) in Canine Behaviour. She is also a Separation Anxiety Pro Trainer and a Fear Free Certified Professional and has written theses on the behavioural characteristics associated with repetitive object-chase play in dogs and on gender-specific fear in dogs. Hannah is continually expanding her experience and professional development through seminars, webinars and workshops by respected canine professionals.
Paula has always had a love of animals but when she adopted a young Lurcher puppy her journey to become a qualified ethical dog trainer started. Despite working with many rescue and pet dogs before this anxious pup arrived, Paula returned to education so she could provide him with the best support from the latest science-based training methods.
Later whilst running her successful dog walking business mixing reward-based training into walks, she introduced herself to Schooling4Dogs to help her reactive dog clients. Since then, she has worked with and shadowed the team becoming a full-time trainer in 2022.
Paula is a fully accredited member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, holding two OCN Level 3 Qualifications in Dog Training and Working with Canine Behaviour as well as Professional Development Certificates in courses such as Perfect Puppy Foundations, Canine Body Language, and Canine Adolescence.
