Meet the instructor

Sonia Catherall

Sonia is a Certified Canine Behaviourist with ICB. She also holds a range of training qualifications and is an ACE Associate Tutor and a City & Guilds Scentwork Instructor.
She has many years of experience training both dogs and their humans; helping to build strong trusting relationships. In particular, she specialises in dogs who’s behaviour stems from being overwhelmed by the intensity of their lives. Both ends of the lead need to work together in these cases, and Sonia has the expertise to support the challenge of building trust and finding harmony.
Sonia has built up a successful business working mainly online, based on her success across this wide range of canine disciplines. She herself is supported by Harry, her friend and teacher who himself has displayed a number of behavioural challenges since puppyhood, which they have mostly overcome together. 
Sonia’s commitment to teaching and learning is ongoing, so her knowledge is both current and expanding.
