Gemma is a self-taught agility specialist and has been an agility trainer with Staffs Agility School since 2007. During the day she is a Conveyancer, a job she loves and at night she enjoys training her own dogs at agility and sharing her skills.

She has two dogs, Ed and Lexi who is Ed’s niece. Both dogs are Bavarian Mountain dogs and are descendants of Nana, a bitch that Gemma’s father imported.

Gemma has achieved grade 7 with both her dogs and Ed has qualified for the ABC semi-finals at Olympia in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Gemma says that she gets a lot of enjoyment out of training especially when you can see a progression in dog and handler.
