About Us


Hi and welcome to my all inclusive Dog Training & Behavioural Community.  I’m Sharon Chamberlin, owner & founder of Dobercademy which is all-in-one Dog Training and Behavioural service I established in 2008 which was named for my passion for The Dobermann. Now operating both fully on-line and practically in the field at our secure countryside premises In Aberdeenshire, Dobercademy offers a unique dog training experience.  I am able to offer everything from classes and specialist workshops to 121s and behavioural consults. I qualified as an Advanced Dog Training Instructor with BMDTS in association with the APDT in 2008, I am a full Dog Training Member of the GoDT, a fully qualified and approved Scentwork UK instructor and have studied dog behaviour for many years.  I have also owned and worked with my own reactive dogs so I’m very well placed to help those who need it in this specialised area.
I focus on offering modern ethical reward based training which includes, progressive learning from puppy classes through our award scheme to Dobercademy Gold Standard Good Dog. I offer a first class system of training which includes a fully supported client experience with the online platforms I have built to assist in person learning at home.
My passion is Dobermanns and I love working them, doing the things they were bred to do.   Iv competed with them in agility, obedience and Working Trials over the last 30 years and have  also shown them at Crufts.
I focus on building relationship and giving a dog a job to do which he was originally designed for.   I remain always very able and willing to help all dog owners who genuinely wish to learn and improve their knowledge and will commit time and effort to train, help and understand their dog, no matter the breed
I constantly keep myself up to date and educated with new knowledge which I am then able to employ myself and pass on to my clients to assist them to enjoy learning with their dog. Customer enjoyment and success is very important to me.  Building communities amongst my groups of clients figures highly for me and that particularly highlights and creates improved learning and support. Clients of mine often become social friends outside of Dobercademy, enjoying other activities together.  I love that.
I serve active committed owners of working breed dogs with reactivity and behavioural issues but very much I’m also for those who wish to unlock their dog’s potential and give him a job to do in order to enrich his life.
I am for you if you are passionate about training your dog to a high standard and not just dealing with problems.

Sharon Chamberlin

I personally founded Dobercademy in 2008. My own Dogs, and horses have always formed the basis and love of my life. Over the years my business grew and I now have 5 Instructors to help me.  I’ve grown up with animals and have evented and competed with my horses and trained and competed in obedience and agility with my dogs.  I have also successfully shown at Crufts.  I qualified as a dog training instructor in 2008 with the Barking Mad Dog Training School & Behavioural Centre in association with the ADPT. I still attend many educational seminars annually in order to keep up to date with the very latest scientific teaching methods for animals, most particularly dogs.  Thus through my lifetime of experience, my learning and my qualifications too I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to give. I am also a fully signed up Dog Trainer member of the Guild of Dog Trainers
