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.  Julie is also accredited member of the APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers). 

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.

Coach Caroline Bradford has always had a love for dogs and regularly volunteers for greyhound rescue. She attended Dog School classes with her own rescue greyhound and loved the classes so much she returned as a volunteer before applying for the coach role. She is a Canine First Aider and is studying Animal Care and Canine Nutrition. Caroline also uses her background in photography and experience of social media to promote and market Dog School Edinburgh.
