Here at Sintonsand Dog Training I specialise in 1:1 Training, 1:1 Gundog training, Group training walks, alongside my Board + Train service. My specialism lies with retreiver breeds. My training is open for all owners & dogs who wish to train their dogs to a fantastic level and provide mental stimulation & satisfaction to their dogs both as pets and working Gundogs in the shooting field.
I am based in the beautiful surroundings of the Herefordshire countryside. My establishment is set in a secure 2.5 acres, is 5 star rated & licensed by Herefordshire Council (HOB29). I am fully insured & have 24 hours CCTV. Your dogs will be treated as my own, and their safety & wellbeing when in my care is of the upmost of priorities.
A bit about myself…
Hi, I’m, Zoe and I have always had a passion for animals. I have been working with animals for over 25 years. I started out as a kennel assistant at my local boarding kennels and this is where I discovered my love and passion, working with animals.
I went on to qualify as a Veterinary Nurse in 2008 after working and training in practice since 2005. I was then promoted to Head Veterinary Nurse in 2010, where I lead my team of nurses for a further 5 years.
In 2015 my original training business, Bark Dog Training Centre was born! I ran Bark for 6 years, offering training and behavioural services. During this time my passion for all things Gundogs sparked! Alongside owning & breeding them, Sintonsand Dog Training was born!
I’m always striving to gain more experience & knowledge. I’m always looking to complete new courses and gain extra qualifications. I attend regular CPD (continual professional development) courses on a great variety of subjects, to keep my knowledge and training techniques up to date. I am a qualified trainer through The Gundog Academy and a member of the ABTC (Animal Behaviour & Training Council).
My dogs have shown me that with hard work, dedication & the building of a strong bond you can create amazing working dogs & fabulous pets, all through force free & positive reinforcement training.
