About nina


My name is Nina Bohm ADip CBM MISAP. I am a qualified canine behaviour counsellor and a member of the international society of animal professionals. I have over fourteen years’ experience in training dogs, and I have been competing in agility for over twelve years.

I believe in only using kind methods of reinforcement for training dogs, and have always had great results from training this way. I use a lot of different types of games to train my dogs. Dogs that are trained in this method are always happy and willing to work for their owners! I also like to take a holistic approach to managing behaviour issues.

I currently have five dogs of my own. 

Frazzle is a twelve year old terrier cross. I got him hoping to do agility with him when he was a year old. Unfortunately due to a bad start in life he has suffered many health issues and had to retire at a young age. He has been very challenging with many behaviour issues.

Digger is around seven years old. He is my husband’s agility dog. He is a terrier cross and was about six months old when we got him. He was about to be put to sleep as he was one of many dogs in Ireland that needed rehoming.  He has competed at agility at Crufts in the novice cup. He competes at championship level in agility.

Shannon is around seven years old too. She is a working sheepdog. We rescued her from Ireland when she was over a year old. She is currently grade 6 at agility and proving to be a wonderful agility dog. She has very strong herding and chasing instincts which have been a challenge to work with.

Cloud is two years old and she is a collie crossed with a springer spaniel! Cloud's mum was a Many Tears rescue from Ireland, She had her puppies in foster care in England. Cloud is a very nervous dog with many issues. She is training to compete at agility but I’m taking my time with her to help build her confidence gradually.

Bethany is our newest addition. She is only six months old. She is a border collie from working lines. My husband will be training her to do agility.

Gone but never forgotten are Spikey and Lilo our first terrier crosses.
