About Ourways Training


Lynne’s passion for dogs started at an early age. Her curiosity about the psychology and training dogs began while watching the farm collie herd the cattle. It was not until 1990 having bred and shown Cavaliers for some time that Lynne specialised in dog psychology and gained a Diploma of COAPE (Centre of Applied Pet Ethology) and also gained many other qualifications in dog training. In 1998 Lynne started Ourway offering a variety of services including classes for training and behaviour consultation. In the following year Lynne became a member of the Association Pet Dog Trainers and an Accredited Member at a later date. Lynne has a special interest in human psychology and is an NLP Practitioner (a branch of cognitive psychology). She is also passionate about the development of both children and adults particularly how they learn. Recently Lynne obtained a professional qualification for Training Trainers (CIEH).

Lynne and her husband Henry have four dogs, Dulcie a working cocker who she takes ‘beating’ and who has been successful in Gun Dog Test, Enjah, Dulcie’s mother, Hattie a Cavalier who Lynne competes with in Agility and Pheobe her young King Charles Cavalier.

In her spare time Lynne enjoys running, especially through the local countryside. This year Lynne has set herself a challenge of Trekking the Great Wall of China. This is to raise funds for Sepsis awareness which three years ago nearly took the life of her daughter.
