Kerry is the founder of Gourmet Pawprints and has an international recognised Diploma in Canine Communication (and was actually the first person to complete this course in the world with Canine Principles).

Kerry also has a Bachelor of Science Degree, Graduate Diploma in Marketing and Masters of Business Administration and many years working with strategic communication.

I was important to Kerry to complete a course that was scientifically based and focused on the dog's needs not just 'training' them to do what we humans want them to do.
