Geraldine ( Gel) Wickham
I have been running training classes in the North Canberra area for 20 years. My training philosophy is science based, pos+v reinforcement training based around building life long skills, confidence and resilience in dogs. We equip you and your dog to have skills to keep up with our ever changing environments. I individualise the training to best suit you & your dogs needs, in your home or out and about.
In May 2014 I opened Paws2play, a training facility & dog day care. After 7 years running and building Canberra's biggest privately owned training facility & successful doggy day care I have sold the business to focus on the needs of dogs suffering anxiety & behaviour problems.
I am a have been in the animal care industry my whole life with many qualifications to support the huge amount of experience I have in the industry.
