Whilst Marjut [aka Mariet] is a CBS newbie she has been an instructor for 15 years. She is working towards completing the CBS Aspiring Instructor Programme in 2023.
In her capacity as a dog owner, she has ventured into Obedience and Rally Obedience trials, Trick Dog training and more recently Noseworks. A brief attempt with Dancing with Dogs unfortunately unearthed her lack of coordination to music. She shares her home with her dogs Nano [Labradoodle] and Metre [Border Collie] and is very proud of their various awards, which have all gone “straight to the poolroom”.
Marjut willingly admits that her transition from the use of slip collars and formal obedience training methods to using harnesses and force-free training has taken time, but recognises the benefits, including the right to be a member of the Pet Professional Guild Australia.
