Julia has been such an amazing support to us following the adoption of an amazing rescue dog with the small issue of separation anxiety. She is always ready to offer further advice whenever we need it. She has given us positive reinforcement as owners, and the resources to give our dog Ludo the right training and enrichment to help him overcome his anxiety. Highly recommended! More...

Julia is amazing. Very knowledgable and patient. She taught me so much and has supported me in many occasions since. I have often directed others to her for support, advice and hands on help. She is a genuinely caring person and has a great team of dogs around her too. Would recommend Balance Behaviour to anyone. More...

Julia gave me the confidence to allow my challenging dog to meet, greet and walk with other dogs. I never thought I would be able to do it. Thank you �

To start myself and Tom would love to say a huge thank you to Julia and Steve and lovely Nikita for travelling to us today. Leo loved meeting you (and eating your tasty hotdogs). Thank you for all your advice and support in the process in helping Leo becoming the best he can be. It is going to take time and consistency but we are going to see many more improvements in the future. Not only in Leo but in ourselves too. There are so many good things that we can say about Balance Behaviour! It has been a pleasure meeting you and we hope to go on some pack walks in the future. In with just a few hours of Leo's assessment we started seeing massive improvements. Highly recommended :) More...

We know still have a way to go but with time, patience and consistency we will develop a calm and happy dog thanks to Julia.'s advice and help .

Julia has been an inspiration to me in my chosen studies in Canine Behaviours. Her knowledge, her practical application and delivering the correct balanced modification plan for the individual dogs behavioural issue(s)is a true gift

Julia is a fantastic Behaviourist. To see her in action is truly impressive - she has the best interests of the dog and their humans at the heart of everything she does and says. A very inspiring person

Julia totally saved my best friend Opie from re-homing or worse! At a time when I was in such a bad place having just lost my husband. Julia showed me how to cope with a very naughty border collie puppy. We still have a long way to go but with the advice Julia gave us I now have a very affectionate loving little dog. I love him so much and we both love Julia. More...

Superb service, attention to detail of individual dog's behaviour. Very friendly and very helpful. Spent 2 and a half hours including meeting, assessment, walking, learning with the dogs. Fabulous service at a great price

Julia has made so much sense to us and explained in terms easy for us to understand why our dog behaves the way she does. It has given me so much more confidence to move our dog forward on her training and hopefully eventually she will be more confident when she's around other dogs Highly recommended Liz and James Lunn

We love Julia and Balanced Behaviour. Julia helps us at a distance at a moment's notice and never fails to shed light on the answers that get us to where we need to be with our Tribe of 12 mixed breed street dogs and our itty bitty Chihuahua! Wadi Wranglers is blessed to have Julia on our team! Thanks Auntie Julia!!! More...

Julia's help and ongoing help has been fantastic for me and my dog, White German Shepherd, Ziggy. We determined that Ziggy has a fear based depression towards other doggies, and through the help of Julia, I have helped his confidence blossom and also change certain ways I approached situations in order to help him further. Thanks a billion Julia!

When I first met Julia I was at my witts end with my dog and I'd seriously tried everything. She really was my dogs guardian angel as withought her help and support I'm not sure my dog would still be with our family today.
Julia is so in depth and really does care about you and your pet. She supports and advises without judging and truly has the best intrests of you and your pet in mind at all times.
I couldn't recommend her and Steve enough.

Julia really knows her stuff! She helped me with my temperamental girl Rosie who was aggressive with other dogs and she could soon be walked without me being in fear. Wonderfully helpful and patient, I would recommend to everyone! More...

I couldn't recommend Julia enough. She saved my relationship with my very damaged rescue dog. I can now enjoy having her whilst keeping her secure and safe in the scary world she lives in. Julia gave me the tools to make both our lives better and the support she continues to provide is invaluable. Thank you so so much. More...

Great advice!
Julia has been the key for me regaining my confidence in walking Casper, after an incident of aggression
I found Julia, and Steve, who was helping, to be professional, knowledgeable, easy to understand, patient and calm
If you and your best buddy are having a few issues then I highly recommend you speak with Julia!
Many thanks Julia! Casper and I are doing well!

Q&A

I love to help both people and dogs overcome problems. I like to see dogs overcome issues and succeed! It's always a new challenge as no two dogs are the same.

The sheer lack of competence within the field of canine behaviour - there is an awful lot of poor advice offerred. I also really wanted to keep dogs from being relinquished to rescue wherever possible and to ensure harmony so that the dog can remain within the home. Rescue is where it began for me and this is still at the heart of what I do.

I offer a genuinely balanced approach to assessment. The approach is always tailored to both the dog and the family. My advice is based on science, knowledge and experience, but the plan has to be feasible and acheivable, for this reason I never use a rigid blueprint as each dog is an individual, as is each family. I design the plan to fit the dog and circumstances using a holistic approach - there is no one size fits all where canine behaviour is concerned!
I am a member of the CFBA, I tutor and supervise work experience for advanced canine behaviour, tutor canine health and nutrition and dog law qualifications and I rescue and rehome for local rescue charities - have a broad knowledge of all things dog! I love a challenge and am determined to give the client the tools to succeed regardless of complexity.

Services

A full behaviour evaluation for one or multiple dogs taking a full history, functional analysis and behavioural diagnostic in order to advise and demonstrate behaviour modification techniques that are suited to owner and dog. A full written report and follow up advice via telephone and email is included.

Not suited to all! However board and behaviour programmes can certainly help some dogs in some scenarios. A stay amongst balanced dogs in my home can give me the opportunity to thoroughly assess, and begin teaching foundation skills in order to set the dog up for success.
