Lila is the co-founder of Temperament Dogs and a full time Professional Dog Trainer and Behaviourist with over 15 years experience. She is truly a dog training geek and regularly attends and organises seminars and courses to continue her professional development.

 

Lila's eye to detail makes her training very precise and 'neat'. She always makes sure all commands and cues given to the dog are clear and structured, and the criteria fair and precise - no matter if she is training for everyday life skills, Agility, Competitive Obedience or else. In her training also she loves to focus on improving the dog-human relationship as well as working on the dogs' engagement and work ethics. The dog's emotions are a high priority in her training and she has a great set of skills to help with working with sensitive dogs

She competes to the highest level in Agility, competing and giving seminars in the UK as well as abroad and is passionate about Competitive Obedience. She also loves trying other sports and activities such as Mondioring, Sheepherding or Search and Rescue. With her first border collie she successfully competed in Dog Frisbee. 

 

She used to work as an Advanced Senior Instructor at Adolescent Dogs as well as a trainer at Royvon Dog Training Schools. Before moving to the UK she also ran her own Dog Training School in Poland and completed her Masters Degree making her a qualified Teacher and Educationalist. 

At the moment Lila has 3 Border Collies of her own and is a real breed enthusiast. She likes to spend her free time browsing pedigrees and looking at different lines of Border Collies
