Hannah Bothwell, Coach
Hannah has had a lifelong love for animals that began with walking all her neighbours' dogs and horse riding, which lead her on to study Animal Behaviour at Liverpool John Moores University.
After graduating in 2017 and gaining some canine husbandry experience, Hannah has been volunteering with Dog School Merseyside for over a year.
Hannah hasn't got any pets at the moment but can't wait until she has a suitable environment to introduce a pooch to!
