Think Positive Dog Training & Positive Agility are owned and taught primarily by Becci Chant.
Becci is an experienced dog handler and trainer, having worked professionally as a trainer since 2010. Alongside her practical teaching experience, she also has an honours degree in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training, which gives her a sound understanding of the theory and science behind the training methods she uses.
In addition, Becci enjoys competing in agility with her own dogs, and has trained 3 dogs so far all the way to Championship level, and has competed at Crufts and Olympia. Becci is well known for being successful with a variety of different breeds, and she really enjoys working dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Becci's canine family is made up of 8 dogs - 3 Border Collies, 3 Kromfohrlanders, a Flatcoated Retriever and a Pointer x GSD. They include a couple of rescues, and one home-bred pup too. Each and every dog has taught Becci new skills and has helped make her the trainer she is today.
TPDT & PA has an assistant trainer on board too!
Daniel Hodson is an architect working in Worcester by day, but is also an experienced dog handler with a superb eye for
detail, and a love of precision.
Also an agility addict, Dan has trained his own young dog Piri from scratch and is progressing through the grades with her.
Piri has a wide range of tricks and talents taught by Dan, and she gets so excited and happy about training and playing!
Dan has taught agility classes previously, before joining TPDT, and now assists Becci when required during classes and
workshops, or provides cover for classes. He is also great at making tea, and cakes!
Dan's finest achievement to date has been asking Becci to marry him, and convincing her to say yes ;)
