What do you love most about your job?

Helping people achieve results with their dog behaviour and training needs.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Trojan, a "problem" dog originally got me into training, which became a regular hobby. Seven years later a trainer asked me if I'd like to learn to to be a trainer and several years later he moved on and left the dog school to me. My local vet then asked if he could send "problem" dogs to me for training. During recovery from a serious illness I started researching alternate training methods and then subsequently completed basic and advanced dog behaviour diplomas and incorporated dog behaviour counselling (behaviour assessment and recommendation). In 2010 I left a corporate management position and started a local online pet food business together with full-time behaviour counselling and training.

Why should our clients choose you?

Many trainers and behaviourists primarily focus on the dog and don't recognise or give sufficient attention to the dog's human companion. By drawing on academic studies, previous corporate management courses, personal training experience and studies in animal behaviour I attend to both the human and the dog in developing a solid relationship to address training and/or behaviour needs.
