MEET THE TRAINER
Hello, my name is Chelsea and I started Canis Concept in 2020 after being inspired by my own quirky rescue dogs to mix up my approach when it came to training. It was very apparent that every dog is an individual and therefore there was no 'one size fits all' approach to training. Instead, I soon realised how important it was to work with training the dog in front of you.
I have always worked with animals since leaving school and this has been an aspiration of mine for as long as I can remember. However, I had never known where my passion for animals would lead, as a result I have worked in a range of roles, from falconry to goat farming. Likewise, my formal education has been focused on developing my knowledge of a vast range of species, not just canines. Although, it was at Aberystwyth University I discovered my love of animal behaviour in particular.
Since leaving university in 2016, I have worked offering online play and training advice to a variety of owners and their dogs. However, since 2020 I have also been offering my own in person training classes, workshops and 1-2-1's.
As with anything, more scientific research and our understanding of the canine mind and behaviour is always developing. Therefore, I pride myself on continuously educating myself on the latest studies and training concepts.
My qualifications include:
Level 2 Award in Practical Animal Care
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management
Diploma of Higher Eduction in Animal Science
I am also currently studying for a degree in Canine Behavioural Management to become a fully qualified behaviourist. Meaning that in the future I will be able to offer my clients in depth behaviourist consultations for more complex behavioural issues.
