I work as a dog trainer at Adolescent Dogs, which is basically my dream job and for years I thought it was an unreachable dream but it turns out dreams can come true! I studied Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Lincoln University and then joined the Adolescent Dogs team as a new trainee back in 2016, since then I’ve worked my way up to an Advanced Senior trainer.
Rumer is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, she’s crazy, active and seriously hard-working! I chose a Toller because I wanted a dog who could compete in dog sports and keep up with my busy, active job, but also who can switch-off and happily spend time chilling out. Rumer matches this exactly and some days she will go all day but other days she can easily take a day off and spend the day on the sofa which is perfect for my ever varied routine.
