School Trainers

Dawn Lee, Head Coach

Dawn started off at Dog School Devon and has now transferred over to join the Northern Ireland team. She is originally from Northern Ireland but had been living England for the past 6 years, so is very excited to have this opportunity to move back home.

Dawn has been involved in rescue her whole life, having worked with different charities and animals. She was also a horse riding instructor so is keen to bring these skills together with her passion for dogs. Dawn loves all dogs but has a soft spot for bull breeds.

She has a rescue boxer called Princess who she enjoys teaching tricks and new skills too, including most recently doggy surfing before they left Devon!

Lynsey McQuillan, Coach

Lynsey originally attended Dog School classes with her own collie called Ollie, and loved the classes so much she returned as a volunteer. Lynsey was a great volunteer for over a year and gave up over 100 hours of her spare time to help us out! All her hard work paid off and she is now a valued member of Team Purple.

She has always loved dogs and has 2 of her own, a Yorkshire terrier called Jess and a border collie called Ollie. Lynsey’s favourite part of the job is meeting all the dogs and puppies and watching them learn from their owners. In her spare time Lynsey likes to teach her dogs new tricks and take them new places to explore.
