“I love being caught up in the moment running my dog – oblivious to everything outside the ring, purely focused on our wild dance together.”

Bonny grew up in Belgium where she went to the British School of Brussels, before completing a First Class MA at The University of Edinburgh.
Bonny believes that just as dogs learn best through positive reinforcement, people learn best that way too. The key is to push people to do better while simultaneously recognizing their successes and achievements.
