School Trainers

Angus Healy, Head Coach

Angus has a BSc in Animal Behaviour and spent his first postgraduate year as a live-in dog carer/ trainee trainer in Hampshire. From there, he found his true calling as a dog trainer, and joined the Surrey branch of the Dog School when it was set up in October 2017.

After developing his skills as a coach in Surrey, making sure to add his signature sass and enthusiasm for all things dog wherever he could, he moved to the Edinburgh Dog School to be the Senior Coach, before recently making the move back to Surrey, this time as the Head Coach. Angus is also an accredited member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (MAPDT 1472).

Angus has raised his young lilac border collie, Juno, from the day she was born, and they both enjoy getting out and exploring the Surrey Countryside wherever they can.

Lauren Woodland, Senior Coach

Lauren graduated from Durham University with a degree in Anthropology with her dissertation project focusing on human-dog relationships. She then followed this up with a MSc in Animal Behaviour at the University of Exeter where she decided she was going to work with dogs forever after!

Lauren joined Dogs Trust in 2018 where she spent three years caring for the wonderful residents of the Newbury Rehoming Centre. Here she worked with dogs with a variety of behavioural and training needs and passed her knowledge on to their new owners resulting in many successful rehomes. By joining Dog School, Lauren is keen to show owners the benefits of reward-based training to help prevent future behavioural problems.

At home Lauren lives with Evie, a Cocker Spaniel/Patterdale cross from Dogs Trust Newbury, who stole her heart just before she moved across to Dog School.

Daniel Boatright, Coach

Daniel’s animal journey started early on when he began studying Animal Management at college. He went on to graduate from the University of Chester with a Bachelors degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. During his studies Daniel worked with a variety of species ranging from small mammals to Exotics and Birds of Prey but came to find a passion in working with companion animals.

After University he began working at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home where he helped care for, assess and train many of the dogs which passed through their doors. After working there Daniel moved to the Blue Cross working as a Pet Health Adviser where he helped owners in need get the care their pets deserved.

Now a Dog School Coach, Daniel aims to use his experience and knowledge to help owners better understand their dog’s world.
