WHY ME?

I love helping people to help their dogs. 
Having worked with hundreds of dogs and owners to resolve their problems, I'm able to put the right solutions in place in the quickest time.

Pet Behaviour Therapist DipCAPBT

Dogs have always had a special place in my heart, and I was lucky enough to have my own rescue dogs from the age of 14

Following some challenges with our first family puppy, I began to learn more about dog behaviour, books were my source of knowledge and the more I read the more I enjoyed acquiring knowledge about dogs and their behaviour.

To increase practical experience, I began fostering rescue dogs for local charities. One of the dogs being fostered had quite a few behavioural problems and unable to find any affordable help locally, I made the decision to follow pet behaviour therapy as a career and become a resource for others.

 

My search for education led me to the work of Kay Laurence and her thoughtful, challenging style of thinking deeply about dogs and how we train them. After gaining an Advanced Diploma with COAPE and the support of a deeply thoughtful learning community I soon found my feet. I've been teaching classes and seeing private clients since 2003 and these days I use my expertise with rescue dogs to support owners whose rescued dogs are  reactive, aggressive, anxious and fearful. 


Away from classes and consults I continue to learn from Kay and am lucky enough to help other trainers develop their skills, improve their learning and develop their businesses. 

​Most importantly my own dogs teach me something new every day.
