Why learn with us?

It’s tough to know where to get your information from. There are many differing opinions out there and it can be hard to pick out the ones that are actually correct. I have worked almost exclusively with camelids for 14 years and started out the camelid-focussed part of my career working with one of the best, Dr David Anderson. I pass on that knowledge and experience in my courses.

The material presented in these courses is evidence-based, not just something that I may have found “works for me”. If you’re thinking about attending, it may also be reassuring to know that I have a teaching qualification to teach at higher education level and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

As well as structured courses run from my practice premises in South East Oxfordshire, I travel widely throughout the UK and Europe to provide bespoke training & CPD. If your regional group or practice is seeing a reasonable number of camelids, it may be a more cost-effective solution to have a bespoke course tailored specifically towards the needs of your vets / group / clientele and taught on-site at your practice / in your area. Please contact us if you are interested in this option.

Places to stay locally

There are lots of lovely places to stay locally. Please note that none are walking distance from our clinic unfortunately and there is no easy public transportation to our front gate. If you are coming by public transport, the closest train stations are at Pangbourne and Goring, with Reading the biggest rail hub locally. Taxis are available from Reading but require advance booking from Pangbourne or Goring.
