So this is my first ever blog for The Ipswich Dog Trainer…….first of many I hope!
The first thing I want to do is thank everyone for their support, this has been a dream of mine for a long time and it’s taken lockdown for me to finally do something about it! I have an amazing family and great friends…….my husband has had to put up with many meltdowns and hours of being ignored while I sit on the laptop with many glasses of wine!
I also have to give a special mention to everyone at Dog Training College for helping me train over the years. I’ve attended lots of their courses and trained under Leanne Louisia Mcwade, without her I don’t think I would have the knowledge I have today. Ben has also been helping in the background with my website offering advice for any changes that he thinks I could make and genreally being star. All of the DTC Approved Instructors all work together and offer advice making it a great team to be part of.
Although I’m branching out on my own I’m still part of the DTC team and will continue to be until they’ve had enough of me!
The whole of June has been taken up with me trying to get my head around tech (I’m not the best at it) but I’m so proud of myself being able to design my own website! I’ve also set up my social media so if you’re not following me I’m on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I’ll be posting different content and offers on them so follow as many as you can. I also have a Trustpilot account so feel free to take a look at the reviews and leave one if you have taken dog advice from me at any point.
Social distancing guidelines have also meant I have had to rethink the way I do some of my training until things are back to normal, whatever the new normal may be! Safety is my number one priority at all times which is why I have taken a Covid-19 course. All current guidelines will be adheared to at all times. As I write this I can train in your garden, or any other open space with a maximum of 6 people (including myself) and my educational sessions will be ran via Zoom. I will update the website on any further changes.
I also work as cabin crew so I have advanced first aid training but for transparency I have undertaken a First Aid At Work course with ProTrainings. This means if anything happens on any of the courses I am teaching I am qualified to assist. Hopefully I will never have to put this into practice but you can never be too careful!
The lovely weather in June meant I could get some great photo’s for my online sites and also to build my eBooks. I think you’ll all agree Sadie at Big Fish Photography has a great eye. I also had some amazing subjects helping me including my Staffie x (Vinnie), 10 year old Collie (Molly) and 13 week old Cockapoo (Cassie).
As I’m writing this I haven’t even gone live and I still have a huge list of things to tackle that has my head spinning but if you are reading it then this means The Ipswich Dog Trainer is up and running.
I’m now off for a strong coffee and a long dog walk with Vinnie before tackling more tech!
“Leanne is always the first person I think of when it comes to dog advice. Knowing Leanne’s experience, I know that it’s advice and recommendations I can trust. I wouldn’t hesitati to recommend Leanne to anyone who need help with their dog/s.”
