DogNostics Faculty


Louise Stapleton-Frappell -  Faculty Member

Louise was born in Yorkshire, England.  She grew up surrounded by beautiful countryside and lots of animals.  Border Collies, German Shepherd Dogs and Chow Chows were part of the family home.  Louise studied for her Bachelor of Arts Degree at the University of Leeds.  Louise was very fortunate as a full year of her course was also spent at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in Portugal and the Universidad de Granada, in Spain.  After leaving University, Louise took her first teaching post at a school in Cartagena.  This was soon followed by a move to Southern Spain where she quickly added a beautiful German Shepherd x Doberman, Bess, to the family.  Thus began her love of teaching dogs as well as people.  A local veterinarian put her in touch with a respected police dog trainer who passed on his knowledge and shared his love of the beautiful canines he worked with. A gorgeous Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Samson, was soon added to the family.  He was followed by Louise's present family members, Tessa and Jambo. Louise continued to follow her love of teaching dogs and furthered her education in the world of dog training.  She discovered the world of dog tricks and shared her passion with Jambo, who, at the age of just 16 months, became the first Staffordshire Bull Terrier to become a Trick Dog Champion.  Louise has worked as a Dog Trick Instructor at In The Doghouse DTC.  Louise advocates against Breed Specific Legislation in favor of breed neutral laws and education about dog bite safety and prevention.  Louise has constantly built on her knowledge and furthered her education in the field of force-free, rewards based, science based dog training.  She was one of the first twenty people world-wide to become a Professional Canine Trainer - Accredited, through the Pet Professional Accreditation Board. She has studied under the tutelage of Kay Laurence and gained her CAP3 with Distinction.
