Dr Katie graduated from Liverpool University in 2012 including elective training in behaviour studies and spent two years working in a busy small animal hospital as a general practitioner vet. From there she started her further education in behaviour and began to work in referral behaviour work and Positive Pet Training was started in 2014. After becoming a qualified dog trainer with the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) Dr Katie also enjoys training just for fun and enrichment as well as for specific behavioural concerns. She then completed a Post Graduate Diploma in clinical animal behaviour at Lincoln University.
Now Dr Katie is also an Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB) accredited Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB), certified member of the Fellowship of Animal Behaviour (FAB) Clinicians and a Registered Veterinary Behaviourist, Registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist and Registered Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour Training Council (ABTC).
As a veterinary behaviourist Dr Katie sees all of our referral behaviour cases and oversees and plans all of our training. She really enjoys group training, especially the higher levels of Hoopers, Agility, Gundog, Good Companion and Scent Work! She presents our online training and focuses on the education of caregivers to improve animal welfare.
