Tina Stockton & Richard Barker
Hi my name is Tina Stockton and I have worked with dogs for over 40 years.
I started dog grooming at the age of 16 and own my own salon.
I now co own Pawmasters dog training and about 8 years ago I did a course with Steve Mann from the Institute of dog training. I now train Kennel Club Good Citizen at all levels and assess Bronze tests.
I am a Master dog trainer with Guild of Master Dog Trainers and look forward to helping train therapy dogs.
During my spare time I am a dog agility judge and enjoy shows with my canine companions.
I first started working with dogs after getting my first rescue over 8 years ago. Since then I have become an acredited trainer, delivering all levels of the Kennel Club Good Citizen award. I compete at various levels of agility with all of my beautiful dogs and run an agility training club at the weekends.
As a fully qualified teacher and specialist in Social, Emotional and Mental Health additional needs in schools, I offer support and training to schools as my full time job and career. I see first hand the impact and positive experiences having a therapy dog can have on children and young people, especially those with additional needs. Therefore I am committed and honoured to be a trusted trainer in this area of the dog training community.
