Working with dogs of all ages and all behaviour problems. Transforming the lives of dogs and their humans using knowledge , experience and kindness.
Dog Behaviourist, therapist, trainer and dog 'supernanny' in your own home, helping and teaching both you and your dog - along with continuing help and support for as long as you want it.
I deal with creating secure, confident and well-mannered dogs in their everyday home life. Puppy and group training classes cannot address basic emotional and behavioural problems. Classes are the equivalent of a child going to school. School can't solve home problems or psychological issues.
Extensive experience and continuous learning gives me a comprehensive ‘toolkit’. You can see stories of many of the dogs I have helped on my website.
Just as you might choose a therapist you can trust for a child with issues, it's the same with your dog or puppy. An unqualified or inexperienced person who has not themselves been trained or who uses the wrong kind of approach can do much more harm than good.
As you can see from my website, I have transformed the lives of many people and their dogs.

What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting people, seeing amazing changes in their dogs and the feeling that I really make a difference.
What inspired you to start your own business?
My love of dogs and of people too, combined with skills from earlier in my long life - I was a teacher, I then ran businesses building website, database and my marketing. I love learning the theory and science behind behaviour - the psychology. Being a dog behaviourist combines it all.
Why should our clients choose you?
Because I have years of experience spanning old-school methods years ago through to the most up-to-date ways of working. People can also see several hundred case stories showing just how I work. They don't go in to it blind. Beginners have to learn on clients. I don't. I go to many cases of people who have already had a behaviourist or trainer (ever more than one) and the dog is no better. I then have put them on the right road. I have a great number of testimonials.
