CV Lynn Scholtz

Ethology - snymeesterR4C4

Lynn’s interest in dogs started 18 years ago, when their first Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Widget, came to live with them.  In a very short time, her love for this breed grew. She bought her first registered Stafford bitch, Terryon Tina, and registered the kennel name “Tuscany” in 1990. During this time, she showed her Staffords and achieved six Breed Champion titles. She served as Secretary to the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club – Eastern Cape for many years, serving as Chairperson for the Club in 2006 and 2007.  She also served as the Club’s KUSA Provincial Council Representative during 2006 and 2007 and served a short stint as Secretary to the EC and Border Obedience and Working Trials Sub Committee.

She stopped being a breeder when Animal Behaviour became a priority in her life. Her introduction to the science of Animal Behaviour arose when she had to consult with an Animal Behaviourist, Colleen Gibson - a previous student of Ethology Academy and also an accredited member of the ABC.  A two year-old Stafford she adopted became aggressive towards people and finally bit a person at her house.  By following Colleen’s programme, this dog’s behaviour was dramatically improved. For the next six years of his life, he was an absolute joy to live with.

Lynn then started collecting any and all literature she could find on the topic of behaviour in dogs, and through Colleen’s encouragement, enrolled in Ethology Academy for the Basic Dog Course in 2005. She continued her studies by doing the Advanced Dog Behaviour Course in 2006, and then the Basic Cat and Horse Course in 2007.  She thoroughly enjoyed the courses and has become a member of SABCAP.  It is her intention to continue her studies and broaden her knowledge, as one of the many things that she has learned is that there is always more to learn!

Lynn has opened a practice in Port Elizabeth called “The Centre for Companion Animal Behaviour”, and has premises in Lorraine. Chloe Harper assists her.  Her interest and passion is working with Reactive / Aggressive Dogs and the training class they are running for these dogs is proving to be most successful.

 Besides her involvement in dog behaviour she and her daughter continue their interest in Dog Sport and compete in the sports of Agility and Dog Jumping. Her love has shifted a bit from Staffords to Australian Sheppard’s and Border Collies – and at the last count there were at about six of them – all living and working in great harmony!
