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.

Emma Brewis, Senior Coach

Emma has over two years’ experience working training and caring for a variety of different dog breeds and temperaments. Since graduating in 2015 with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Animal Behaviour and Management, Emma has for the RSPCA’s Felledge Animal Centre as an ACA.

Alongside her education and experience it was Emma's own little dog, Yoshi (cutest Border Terrier ever) that was her inspiration to join us at Dog School.

Emma spends a lot of her spare time with her horse, Danny, who she is currently clicker training to pick his feet up to help with general husbandry and handling as well as some fun enrichment for him!

Emma's favourite areas of dog training are impulse control and scent work. She feels teaching impulse or self-control to a dog provides an overall good foundation for a lot of aspects to training, and it gives them a much better chance of success across other areas of training, such as trick training, lead work and leave it.
