After spending several years in mixed practice she moved to the University of Oxford where she completed two specialised clinical qualifications and was awarded a Wellcome Trust Fellowship for her PhD in behavioural neuroscience. After spending several years in the States working as Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Anesthesiology, she is now Director of the Comparative Biology Centre at Newcastle University.

Dr. Rob Hewings.
Head of the UK College Of Scent Dogs
Topic: Trust Between the Adult Learner and Trainer
A trusting relationship between adult learner and trainer is an essential factor in the development of any type of learning. We as instructors should often reflect upon our training and frequently ask ’Have I created the desire to learn?’ In this presentation Rob will introduce his underpinning philosophy for ‘Canine Trainer/Handler/Owner Education Programme’ which is based upon introducing Humanism into the dog training forum.
Head of IMDTB
Topic: The Romania Rescue Dog; Case Study: Typical issues, behaviour modification and support
