Dr Jacqueline Boyd, BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD, PGCHE, CHES, FHEA, MRSB

Lecturer in Animal Science at Nottingham Trent University

Jacqueline is passionate about making the world a better place for animals and people, through enhancing peoples’ understanding of what animals really need and how humans can help them.
Jacqueline currently writes, coaches and consults on all aspects of Canine Science, works as a nutritionist in the animal feed industry and is a short course tutor/lecturer in Animal Science at Nottingham Trent University as well as being a Senior Visiting Fellow, lecturing on degree level nutrition and anthrozoology modules, and giving guest lectures at other colleges and universities. This means that Jacqueline has both academic, educational and industry experience in the subject area and a deep passion for how animals and humans can benefit each other. In addition, Jacqueline writes regularly for Your Dog magazine and The Kennel Gazette, as well as occasionally having non-canine and non-science writing published too.
Jacqueline has also lectured on aspects on animal health and welfare in Morocco and Jordan through her voluntary work as trustee and Chair of the Services Committee with the UK-based charity SPANA, and she is regularly involved with the Kennel Club as a guest speaker at key canine events, including Crufts, as a member of the Dog Health Group and as Chair of the Activities Health and Welfare Sub-Group. Living with, working and training her five cocker spaniels in a range of canine disciplines, means that Jacqueline also has a robust understanding of the practical realities of the animal world from a personal perspective, adding to the “real-word” applications of her experience and content delivery, as well as keeping her very firmly grounded and smiling a lot!
