On Kew Dog Training & Behaviour

Nada Chebib

Hi I’m Nada Chebib.  I’m a Certified Training Partner with the respected Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Training Program, a registered Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour & Training Council (ABTC), and a Supporting Member of the IAABC. I’m skilled in using science based positive training and behaviour modification methods that make teaching fun and effective for you and your dog.  Prior to founding On Kew Dog, I worked as a senior HR professional providing coaching to leaders and their teams for over 25 years.

I stay up to date on the latest scientific understanding of behaviour and training by attending continuing education seminars, workshops and conferences, as well as lots of reading!

More About Nada

  • I’m fully insured as a dog training professional and have done my Canine First Aid Level 2 (VTQ).
  • I volunteered with a Surrey based rescue for several years, where I supported the training and socialisation of numerous dogs with behaviour challenges.  Many of these dogs are large breeds whose personalities shine through with the application of kind force-free training methods enriching their lives while awaiting adoption.
  • At home, I share my life with Gavin (my partner), a fun-loving Mastiff x named Steffi, a very clever calico cat named Ginger, and an adventurous tabby cat named Jackson.
