Having started out as a grooming assistant, eleven years ago Lucy quickly climbed the ranks and eventually joined her local kennels working with the more difficult dogs. Having spent three years building her management experience she was then asked to join the Behaviour Team at Battersea Cats and Dogs Home (the UK´s best known rescue centre), where she met Rhona.
Lucy remained with Battersea for six years, developing the vital skills necessary to become a qualified dog trainer and became accredited with the IMDT in 2018. In 2021 she was asked to consult as Head of Training for Bruces, a large Doggy Day Care franchise with locations across the UK. With her engaging style and impeccable people skills, Lucy was asked to train the entire team and put into place training strategies across the business as well as writing and creating courses and workshops for clients. She keeps up to date in her field by regularly attending conferences such as the Animal Behaviour and Training Councils annual behaviour conference. She is working towards her level 6 equivalent in Animal Behaviour with The School of Canine Science.
With her compelling presentation style and can-do attitude it wasn’t long before Lucy was talent spotted by world renowned TV dog trainers Nando Brown, Jo-Rosie Haffenden and Dean Nicholas and asked to join the School For Dogs staff.
Lucy also has her own Beagle called Fred who she intends to train Heel Work to Music with and also enjoys agility. She has a talent for communicating and helps clients to overcome bad habits and start their journey to success with her unique blend of expertise and superb presentation.
