Hi, I’m Gemma.
I created Causeway Dog Training in 2019 out of my love for dog agility, bringing the fun to the North Coast. My love for teaching blossomed and I started studying more and more to be able to take puppy classes, is that honestly not the best job in the world!?
Lockdown was a great time for me to carry on studying and I added 2 more instructor certifications to my name. I am an Accredited Canine Hoopers UK Instructor and a Certified Trick Dog Instructor with Do More with your Dog.
I am also a blue level World Scent Dog Association instructor and an Agility 1st Accredited Instructor.
I am constantly undertaking more training so that I can keep upping my game as a trainer, keeping up to date with new science, theories and methods, throwing in a bit of craic while I’m at it.
I am a member of the Pet Professional Guild and am a Tug-E-Nuff partner.
I live on the North Coast with my husband, 2 kids and 5 dogs! Flash is probably my best known dog, he even gets recognised on the beaches! Flash is my deaf springer spaniel and my top playmate in agility and hoopers, he also has a pretty cool trick repertoire.
Reef is my stunning Miniature American Shepherd. He is an absolute clown and very often a very sneaky teenage boy! Reef has started life as a superstar trick puppy, achieving his Trick Dog Champion title before he was 12 months old! Hopefully he will follow Flash and compete in agility and hoopers as well.
I then have 3 ladies- a collie/lab/spaniel mix, a border collie and a lovely lurcher but they all take a more low key lifestyle than the boys do.
Aiming for an incredible relationship with your dog/puppy?
Want training that isn’t just circling a hall to perfect that loose lead walking?
