All about me
Hi, my name is Kate Lamacraft and I have a owned and trained my dogs for 25 years. I have passed my practical IABTC instructing pet dog owners course with a distinction and theory with merit, and I have passed my Agility 1st Trainer qualification, accredited by Agility 1st. Both these dog training companies are preferred Kennel Club educational providers. I have continued to develop my dog training skills and in March 2018 passed my Pro Dog Trainer course, followed in March 2020 by Pro dog Geek course. I am also a UK Scentwork qualified trainer, UK Sniffer Dogs Instructor(Silver Level) and have passed The School of Canine Science Scent 4 Six course. I also hold a canine first aid qualification and human 1st aid certificate.
I am a fully qualified teacher of 29 years and I taught PE and Computing in a middle school in Central Bedfordshire. I left the teaching profession in 2020 to follow my passion and become a full time dog trainer.
I own three rescue dogs, Roxy, Gem and Skip. We sadly lost our old boy Alfie in January 2020. Alfie was a collie x husky, Roxy is a collie x golden retriever, Gem is also a collie X and Skip is a Working Cocker Spaniel. I compete with both Roxy (Grade 6) and Gem ( Grade 5) in Agility competitions. Alfie made it to Grade 4. Skip is just starting out on his agility adventure.
