Kirsten is the owner and head trainer at Pup2Dog Training. She first fell in love with dog training at the age of 12 when training with the family’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Forest. Together, Kirsten and Forest went on to compete in agility trials and her passion for dog training grew. From then on Kirsten was determined to make her passion into a career and use her skills and knowledge to help other people. Kirsten now uses her in depth knowledge of dog behaviour and training to teach pet dog owners how to understand & train their furry companions while also working full time as a Guide Dog Trainer at Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. She is also the proud dog mum of two Border Collies named Jinx & Rev and a Labrador named Spot, who are often seen assisting in classes and consultations.
