My name is Lel and I am a Tricky Paws Instructor.

My Tricky Paws journey began in 2018 as a volunteer assistant for Carrie-Anne, working my way up to becoming a Training Instructor in 2019.  I am still studying hard as my ultimate goal would be to become a behaviourist.

From birth, I grew up around dogs as my grandma and grandpa were breeders many years ago, so I guess it was inevitable that I would always be surrounded by them!


I currently own a gorgeous 5 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Jj, who I adopted in 2018 and he is a big part of why I became interest in dog behaviour.

Jj came to me with anxieties around other dogs and animals and I really wanted to understand him and learn how to help him.  I contacted Tricky Paws for some help and that was it, I was hooked on behaviour and training and the rest is history!  I love being an Instructor - what's not to love about being surrounded by puppies and dogs all day?!

Aside from dog training, I am also a mobile hairdresser and singer, living in Burnham-On-Sea my entire life (and I'm not telling you how many years that is!).

I really can't wait to meet you (hopefully)!
