My name s Alice Bates and I'm the founder of AB Dog School. I'm a dog behaviourist and trainer with a first class degree in Animal Behaviour from Anglia Ruskin University. I have worked with animals for over 10 years including working as a behaviourist and trainer for the largest UK dog charity, as an animal keeper for a small zoo and as a behavioural advisor for a dog welfare charity in Spain.
I also have my own amazing pup, Laika who is a Saarloos wolf dog and is full of energy and keeps me on my toes! I grew up around keeshonds and a staffy called Xana who started my passion in animal training. I taught her to do "doggy dancing" (as I called it) when I was 10 as well as a bunch of other party tricks that we use to show off with.
I've worked with lots of other domestic and exotic species too and have had the opportunity to train some really amazing animals.
