About Our Trainers


Lyn Wilson

Hi, I’m Lyn Wilson, owner of Happy Dogs Training School, I live in Enfield with my two children who both take an active interest in the welfare of our three dogs, Abby, a working Labrador, Fudge, a really great Heinz 57 variety and Muppet a working Cocker Spaniel. My own dogs participate in a wide range of classes all for fun, they have all passed their Gold Good Citizen Award and take part in our Display team and promoting responsible dog ownership. I have been involved with dogs all my life and for the last 20 years I’ve been interested in dog training and behaviour. I am passionate about responsible dog ownership and the healthy balance of owning a well-trained dog and still having a life, which involves all the other things such as work, family, and hobbies. I have attended and assisted at many different training clubs before deciding to set up a training centre that could offer everything that the owners I speak to want. We now have an amazing facility that offers a wide range of classes to satisfy everyone. We have a display team who attend local school fetes and shows to promote responsible dog ownership and to show what fun a well trained dog can be.

I am experienced in the fields of obedience, working gun dogs, scent work and agility using a variety of training methods. I have attended college for canine studies (theory and practical) and I am working towards Kennel Club Accreditation. I am an Affiliated Member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and the RCDTBP and Instructor qualified with the I.A.B.T.C as well as being a qualified Agility Instructor and a qualified Advanced Instructor with the P.D.T.I.


Sue Aspinall

She has attended and passed an Instructors course with the B.I.P.D.T and PDTI and has endless patience both with dogs and owners. Sue is a real asset to the club and is great at spending 1-2-1 time with our puppy class owners to ensure they gain the most from their sessions.

Sue is our Fly Ball instructor as well as teaching our Good Citizen classes and puppy courses. Sue regularly attends courses and seminars to keep updated with latest methods and ideas.


Jodie Nazimi

Jodie’s passion is teaching agility, she has been teaching agility since Oct 2013. Jodie passed her Agility Club instructors course in October 2014 and her Agility First Instructor’s qualification in January 2015. Dog training is a new career path for Jodie but she is able to draw on her skills from her background in education from when she was teaching. She has also competed at obedience for many years.

Jodie loves to keep her classes fun and light hearted, to ensure both handler and dogs have a great time together, with the aim of making sure owners build on their skills each week at their own pace. All Jodie’s teaching is reward based, turning her teaching in to a game with toys for the dog when possible. JACS agility club is run at Elmtree Canine Country Club, on our amazing astro turf surface with a full course including aluminium contacts. They have had a successful first season in the agility club league tables being promoted to division 3. JACS club members have also managed to win numerous awards this year. Some of their handlers compete and some just want to have fun with their four legged friends, Jodie welcomes everyone in to her Agility classes at Elmtree, both competing and non-competing handlers are sure to enjoy themselves.
