School Trainers

Frank Taylor, Head Coach

Frank currently holds a CertHE from Chester University in Dog Training and has joined us at Dog School Newcastle from 9 years of working at Guide Dogs as a Guide Dog Trainer. This has given him the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills with both dogs and people of varying abilities, in group and 121 settings. Frank has a strong passion for dog training and loves seeing a dog engaged and enjoying the interaction with their owner.

Hannah Parkes, Senior Coach

Hannah has always been passionate about dogs, and enjoys helping owners to better understand theirs. She has graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Animal Behaviour from Chester University. Alongside her studies, she completed a Canine First Aid course and has been volunteering with dogs through a large variety of work experience, including vets, kennels and animal behaviour clinics, all of which have reinforced her passion to work with dogs.

Fraser Rutter, Coach

Fraser has a Master’s in Zoology from Newcastle University and has always wanted to work with animals for as long as he can remember! He loves to travel and explore the world. Fraser currently has a cat called Dave, who he describes as a legend! Fraser has grown up around dogs and hopes he can take on a dog when the time is right. He has always had a keen interest in dog behaviour and describes being able to help dogs and owners as an absolute pleasure to help raise a perfect member of the family, and the community.
