New to Sussex Canines?

Here’s why I'm qualified to help you get the off lead freedom of your dreams.

My name is Gemma and I share my life with two Hungarian Vizslas (plus some humans!). 

Having loved dogs from an early age, I have been shadowing and helping out in dog training classes since I was a teenager.
Since then I have gone on to gain certifications with ​​the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour & Training, British College of Canine Studies and the Dog Training College. 
In 2020 I became a certified Pro Dog Trainer with Absolute Dogs, also passing their Geek (dog behaviour) course a few months later.

I keep my learning up to date with a membership to the Pro Dog Trainer Club and I attend regular online meetings with other trainers to discuss case studies.
I’ve enrolled in a myriad of other courses from various sources, all of which promote reward-based training methods.
I put a huge amount of time into my own education, and surround myself with a network of other amazing trainers, so that I’m in the best place to support you.
My clients mean the world to me. If you choose to train with me, know that I'll be with you, cheering you on, every step of the way.


 I have loved training with Sussex Canines. Gemma was the perfect tutor to help me settle my rescue pup into her new home, and we built a great bond together whilst learning numerous skills that have proven invaluable in the months since. Sussex Canines comes highly recommended!

 I have been training with Gemma since our wirehaired vizsla pup was 4 months old. First on zoom during lockdown and later in group classes. I am happy with her rewards based approach to training. I have been so impressed with how knowledgeable and supportive she is and that she will always go the extra mile to help you and your dog if you encounter problems along the way. I thoroughly recommend Gemma as a trainer.
