What do you love most about your job?

I love seeing the results of my training and behaviour work and how happy this makes my clients and their dogs. I love seeing the relationships between my clients and their dogs grow and improve - HAPPY, CALM DOGS - I’m a lifelong lover of dogs, they absolutely fascinate me, they are so intelligent, so endearing, so much fun and they are utterly life-enhancing. I have learned that dogs do live in the moment and that they therefore have an amazing ability to change completely.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Back in 2007 I embarked on a journey with my own dog Tiggy. After having rehomed her, I discovered that she was very frightened on walks, turning to barking and lunging at dogs to scare them away.

I wanted to learn how to help Tiggy, walks were becoming increasingly more difficult, family events with other dogs a stressful event.

So I spent the next 10 years, learning as much as I could, not only to help Tiggy, but also other dogs too. When Tiggy died my heart broke in a way that I thought would never mend, but I went on to adopt 5 more rescue dogs, helping them with with issues including fear of men, fear of noisy traffic, dog to dog reactivity, hyperactivity, fear of unknown places, separation anxiety and high prey drives. (That’s quite a legacy Tiggy!)

I knew there were people out there, who had also been through the heartbreak of their dogs being attacked, aggressive, anxious or possibly rehoming a more challenging dog.

I studied with leading Dog Behaviourists including Ross McCarthy MA FCFBA MBIPDT MGoDT AMBPSCA at The Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training (CIDBT) - and Sarah Whitehead, (BA, MSc) and author of the bestselling ‘Clever Dog’ book (Advanced Dog / Dog Aggression), volunteered for various rescue charities and invested much time and money on courses and practical experience, focusing on rescue, reactive and anxious dogs.

This turned into something incredibly powerful and I craved the opportunity to help more dog owners find the same joy on their walks and ways to help their dogs feel happy again.

Where I was once a lonely and isolated dog owner I now was receiving dozens of messages filling my inbox:
“Thank you Karen for making walks pleasurable and relaxing again”

As the messages continued I was fuelled with this new found passion and wanted much more than just a business helping any dog owner, so created a niche just for those who had experienced some of the same issues as myself in particular.
