Outside of work Kirsty enjoys spending time with her 3 dogs and training her Border Collie x Aussie in agility and competitive obedience. Her passion for reward base training and helping her clients achieve specific training goals shines through.
Kay started agility in 2011 when her young Beauceron made it quite clear that he required a challenge and a 'job' to do.
A couple of years later Kay took on the role of assisting her agility instructor, after a short time Kays love for teaching along with her passion for good dog training and her fabulous people skills were obvious by all. She completed an agility instructor course and gained the knowledge and confidence to instruct her own groups.
In 2017 Kay was chosen by her present dog 'Sasha', who she competes with. Kay and Sasha are progressing well in their agility and they compete at Championship level in Steeplechase.
