Graeme Storey - Head Agility Instructor and Obedience Trainer.
I have experience with all breeds of dogs and know how to find their motivation. I firmly believe that early socialisation and training can help prevent many behavioural problems from occurring in later life, and also believe that a dogs training should be life long which is why I offer a large range of classes suitable for all ages and abilities of dogs.
Graeme has been a dog trainer since 2003. Graeme has had pets all his life and was given Riley a scruffy little Shih Tzu at 10 weeks old, he knew he would have his hands full after the first night when Riley escaped the puppy pen and fell asleep in a box of sugar puffs! After cleaning Riley up, Graeme knew he would have to find a training class so promptly joined a club and progressed through the obedience classes but always knew that he wanted Riley to be an agility dog.
After his first year of agility training Graeme and Riley had won the beginners agility trainer trophy and soon began competing all over the UK. While training Riley the opportunity came for Graeme to become a competition agility instructor and instructed for 4 years in agility and 1 year in Flyball before starting Instructing in Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme in 2010 and later instructing classes in Association of Pet Dog Trainers Good Companion Scheme in 2014.
Graeme and Riley had amassed 40 top 5 places in agility in 3 years competition and in their final full year had won enough kennel club points to add Agility Warrant Silver to the horde of trophies, rosettes and certificates they have won together. Graeme adopted Lola after she had an unexpected litter of puppies at 9 months old, Lola known as “ the good one” although faster than Riley has only ever won 1 trophy in agility but excels in her obedience.
