Trainers' profiles

Head Coach Julie Morrison was previously a Dogs Trust Training Behaviour Advisor, responsible for training at Dogs Trust West Calder as well as providing advice and support to dogs in their homes. 


Julie has a CertHE from Bristol University in Companion Animal Welfare and Behavioural Rehabilitation and has recently completed the Puppy Life Skills course with Lincoln University.  Julie has also studied Canine Behaviour with the Natural Animal Centre and Canine Psychology with the Animal Care College.  

Senior Coach Fiona Sinclair has a PhD in Ecology but her first love has always been dogs. Ten years ago she studied Dog Behaviour on a distance learning course with COAPE “just for fun”.


She developed her practical experience by volunteering support in puppy classes for four years, before setting up her own small business offering one to one puppy training, dog walking and boarding.

Caroline is just getting settled into Dog School Edinburgh! Watch this space!
