I am passionate about working with animals, particularly dogs and horses. I have over 15 years’ experience providing professional advice and support to dog owners.
As well as running my business – Kimberly Cox Dog Training and Behaviour School – I have worked for the Charity Medical Detection Dogs for the past 8 years. I started with MDD as a trainer and gained valuable experience in understanding assistance dogs and their work. Over the years my role has developed and I now work as a Welfare, Training and Behaviour Consultant for the Charity, developing staff training and helping evolve the Charity’s scope of work.
My aim is to support and educate owners and teach them the skills to communicate and understand their dogs. This not only improves the dog’s quality of life but also develops a happy, balanced pet, which is an asset to the family home. The courses and workshops I run use compassionate techniques, working with you and your dog to build a unique and rewarding partnership.
I am always striving to learn more in the field of dog behaviour as this is a real passion of mine. Keeping up to date with modern techniques and updating my knowledge and experience.
