Annie has been helping me with a number of issues with my two rescue dogs. I was at the point where I didn’t think I could cope with them and she has given me so much confidence and reassurance. It’s never a quick fix but she has given me so many key ideas and I have seen such an improvement in them already! More...

Annie was recommended to us by some friends and we have been very happy with her. She is very professional when it comes to dogs and can see things we owners can't! She has been great help with both our dogs especially with our GSD who is a nervous kind. She uses different methods and tools to teach us how to communicate effectively with our dogs and their issues are continuously improving :) More...

My dog Kevin wasn't the brightest pup in the park. A bit of a scaredy cat. I felt like I needed a trainer to boost his confidence because he was a bit afraid of other dogs. Annie really helped my with what I was doing wrong, I was too much of a push over and she really helped me to toughen him up and help his confidence. Would highly recommend. More...

Thank you so much for your help Annie! Lula is no longer afraid of her crate. We can also take her off lead on walks now that you’ve taught her to come back!

I hired Annie to help with my anxious agressive staffordshire bull terrier. Since working with Annie, Bella has learnt how to behave appropriately when meeting new people and other dogs. She calmly explained why Bella was behaving in this way and showed me simple and effective ways I could change this behaviour.

If you're looking for a way to positively redirect your dogs behaviour this is the dog trainer for you!


I’m a graduate of Exeter University in Animal Behaviour where I studied for four years, including one years study in South Carolina. Currently I am based in Epping Essex, covering behavioural issues in Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridge and London. My studies and experience working with animals allowed me to develop a scientific, evidence based approach to working with animals. This coupled with continued work experience and courses with The UK Dog Whisperer have allowed me to really refine my approach to dog behaviour and training.

From a very young age I have been fascinated with the way animals interact. In the absence of language it was clear to see these animals had alternative, more primitive, but by no means less sophisticated ways of communicating. This interest followed me into my teenage years where I started working with my own dogs and then friends and families, correcting problem behaviours at any opportunity. From here I decided I wanted a greater understanding of exactly how and why dogs were behaving in these ways, which led me to study their behaviour professionally to help owners and dogs alike.

To me, there is nothing better than enhancing the relationship between owner and dog. Allowing people to better enjoy and deepen their relationship with pets is my ultimate work. From obedience training to dealing with challenging or aggressive cases, strength

ening the bond between canine and humans is always the end goal.

In most cases of misbehaving dogs, it can be a simple case of miscommunication between owner and pet, with my expertise and guidance I can help turn things around and help build lasting relationships with your dog.

Traditional methods of dog training teach that we must forcefully dominate our pets, constantly asserting ourselves as Alpha. Whilst it is important to practice leadership, I believe in a

consistently patient and calm approach that

allows dogs to recognise me as the pack leader. With the correct knowledge and tools, you can do this too.

Central to my teachings is the importance of first listening to what the dog has to say. As a detached observer I am often able to pinpoint the stressor triggering the dog’s unwanted behaviour. From here, plan an achievable course of action for to renew a loving obedient relationship.

I offer a positive approach to dog training, helping pet and owner better communicate to restore harmony to this relationship.
