As a lot of Dog Trainer origin stories go, Christina had a passion for dogs from a young age. After 18 years in the industry as a behaviour practitioner specialising in herding and guarding breeds, EpicDog Training Academy was founded in 2014.
The facility based in Glasgow, quickly became a leading provider of welfare and behaviour focused daycare, a renowned training and rehabilitation hub and grew a thriving Search & Rescue department.
Christina’s passion for teaching sparked the creation of an online platform in order to help more people and dogs in early 2015, and the passion for training trainers was of course an inevitable development when you love detail and transformation, and have learned an awful lot! There is of course ALWAYS room for more growth and development, which Christina enjoys passionately.
Christina is the proud owner of Border Collie Skye and Laekenois Ash. They enjoy working sheep at her holiday home in the Inner Hebrides, and are kept busy with S&R, Working Trials and Mondioring and competitive scent-work when at home in Glasgow West-end. Most importantly of course, they are two adored family members.
