Lisa Hough, Head Coach
Lisa has had a lifelong love for dogs which grew when she started to work in a boarding kennel environment at a young age. After over ten year working within boarding and rescue kennels alongside a trainer and gaining an abundance of knowledge and experience, this lead Lisa to study Canine Care, Welfare and Training.
Lisa joined Dog School in December 2018 and enjoys meeting all the new dogs and owners that walk through our door and watching them develop and blossom into more confident dogs.
Lisa loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa with her seven year old Bichon Frise, Hugo in the evenings, but during the day you will find her out strolling around the Shropshire and Cheshire countryside – Especially the Sandstone Trail!
Eleanor Dawson , Senior Coach
Eleanor has always been very enthusiastic about working with animals and after leaving school she completed a diploma in Animal Management. She learnt about all aspects of animal care, including training and behaviour, and then went on to attain a first-class degree in Animal Behaviour and Psychology. During university, she developed a passion for canine behaviour and training by completing a work placement in a behavioural veterinary clinic.
Eleanor then worked in a pet shop where she met a variety of dogs all shapes and sizes! In October 2019, Eleanor landed her dream job here at Dog School and absolutely loves meeting and training different types of breeds and thoroughly enjoys getting to know each new dog who comes to class.
Although Eleanor does not yet own a dog of her own, she can be found spending a lot of time with her spoiled guinea pig, Fidget.
