TRAINER - NATALIE ROUSE
Natalie is one of the newer members of the Johnston K9 team. She began training her own puppy Ronnie with us in 2013 and became an Instructor in 2015. She is currently working towards the KCGCDS Examiner Award.
Natalie grew up with dogs and is now the proud owner of Staffordshire Bull Terrier Ronnie, who successfully passed all of the Kennel Club Good Citizens Exams with Johnston K9. She is a true advocate of Bull breeds and loves nothing more than seeing people's opinions of these breeds change!
Natalie's introduction into the Reservist Military Working Dog Squadron heightened her interest in the training side of Johnston K9, this was short-lived due to work commitments but allowed her to become a solid part of the Johnston family.
Her favourite part of training is working with challenging dogs and their handlers to drive the change they want. She also loves to see all the young handlers coming through and watching their excitment when they pass their exams!
