Hi I'm Kylie.
I'm the woman behind Skypuppy School. I have a Diploma of Education from the University of Canberra and a Science Undergraduate Degree from Charles Sturt University. With 15 years of teaching experience, my strength is teaching inclusive group classes.
In 2022 I certified as a FDM - Family Dog Mediator, and I've completed the Puppy Lab Certificate by the School Of Canine Science. I am currently undertaking a 3 year behaviour qualification with The School of Canine Science, alongside their scent work course. I am a qualified Canine Hoopers Instructor.
I have been working as a professional dog trainer since early 2019, building a strong reputation as a pet minder, providing walk and train sessions through Mad Paws. In 2021 I worked with All Round Good Hounds as a puppy trainer and workshop presenter.
I have been a foster carer with 4Lyfe Rescue since 2017 and have successfully rehomed more than a dozen dogs, including the settling of some trickier rescue cases. I have also spent time as a volunteer with ACT Rescue and Foster (ARF) as a temperament tester, assessing dogs in local and regional pounds.
In 2021, the time felt right to launch Skypuppy School, a venture which combines my teaching expertise with my passion for dogs. Skypuppy School specialises in group classes that provide you with a supportive space where you can progress skills while having fun with your dog.
I love GRC Dogsports and have achieved an SR1 title with my dog own Miku. In 2023 the Skypuppies will also be having fun with scent work and Canine Hoopers.
