Alanna Scanlan IMDT
I am an accredited dog trainer with the IMDT and an Approved Instructor for the Dog Training College which means I only use force free training methods. I have been DBS checked and am fully insured, I am also qualified in canine first aid and I am committed to continual investment in training and professional qualifications.
I started Hound About Town in 2016 after losing my first dog, Amber. I've been around dogs since the age of 11 but initially was swayed towards horses when I left school, starting with a qualification in Equine Studies. I ended up doing a variety of jobs and studying for a BA in English Language and Literature until I realised I couldn't bear not to be working with animals any longer.
I have previously volunteered at the Dogs Trust dog school teaching owners and their puppies essential life skills and I also enjoy assisting and teaching at other local trainer's group classes.
I specialise in trick training and heelwork to music and although I adore all dogs I especially enjoy working with Border Collies and Cockapoos!
I share my life with Inca, a Border Collie x GSD.
