Trainers at Swat


Toni has been competing in agility since 2001, where she took her first dog to Senior Grade and is an Agility Club Appointed Instructor First Class - the highest qualification available to a UK trainer. She is also a qualified Kennel Club Judge. She currently competes with her Border Collie, Teaq, at Kennel Club Grade 7.

Toni firmly believes that handlers who train with SWAT, learn of the club directly from our success as a club and the support and commitment given to each club member. Toni does training days for other clubs and people travel from all over the country to book lessons with her.

Her success lies in being able to bring out the best in every dog/handler partnership - happiness and consistency are the main keys.

Toni is assisted with SWAT training by others who all train using the same methods and handling systems.
