Annie Dawson
Specialist Instructor

Main Area of Instruction: Wales & Borders

Annie is a long time dog owner and has a great understanding in caring and training dogs and horses.

She has been trailing with her K9 Partner Billie, a wired haired Vizsla since 2019. She is part of the Search and Rescue Community for a number of years and is currently completing training and upskilling to be involved in future deployments. She is also helping her husband Andy to train their young Vizsla puppy to become an operational Trailing Dog in the future, which shows great potential.

Annie and Billie achieved the Skills for Justice Award Trailing Dog Handler in 2021, but it became very clear to the Master Instructors of the British Mantrailing Academy early into the course, that Annie not only was an extremely gifted Dog Handler, but also outstanding in people and customer care skills.

We are very pleased, that she accepted our invitation into our Instructor Team to represent us in the future in Wales and the surrounding English border parts.
