Dedicated to helping support you and your best friend!
I’ve been passionate about dogs for as long as I can remember. At the local park, you’ll usually find me showing more interest in the dogs than in the cafe and their delicious cakes!
My journey begins…
From a young age, I knew that I wanted to work with animals. So, in 2014, I started on my animal training journey. I discovered my passion for animal behaviour, welfare, psychology, and nutrition and have been fortunate enough to work with a diverse range of 70+ species in zoological, domestic, and competitive environments.
Kindness and support makes a happy, confident dog.
Throughout my training journey, my desire has been to make the lives of dogs more fulfilling and to improve the bond between animal and owner. Using ethical, non-invasive training methods, we strengthen that relationship and help your dog to become more confident.
Committed to empathy and understanding
As my own education progressed, I found myself drawn to educating others. I saw a common lack of empathy and understanding, for owners of dogs with behavioural issues. I also felt that there was a general lack of guidance and aftercare, even within the industry.
Living with a pet that displays ‘problem behaviours’ can put tremendous stress on both the human and the dog, affecting the wellbeing and relationships of everyone involved. It is a highly emotive topic and I wanted to get people talking about the reality of living with these behavioural issues, especially reactivity and ‘aggression’.
They aren’t ‘bad dogs’ and you aren’t a ‘bad dog owner’!
These misunderstood individuals are usually incorrectly labelled as being ‘bad dogs/owners’ or worse. It’s demoralising, demotivating and incredibly isolating. Dog ownership isn’t the dream we see in the movies. I get it; I have been there too! I have been sat on my own, in the dark, with a large glass of wine, questioning if I was doing the right thing, asking myself:
“What the hell have I got myself into?”
I felt generally deflated. I have cried when my dog has ignored me, in favour of a squirrel or another lap around the park. I have felt like a failure when she first showed signs of resource guarding. I have made up excuses to family and friends and apologised to strangers for my dog just being a dog!
More than just an owner: a best friend and an advocate!
We are all sentient, emotional creatures who deserve to be treated with respect and empathy, on both ends of the lead. And that is exactly what you will get from us… non-judgemental support from day one!
The world of dog training can be scary and overwhelming. It’s hard to ask for help. It’s even more difficult to ask for help when these ‘issues’ are not talked about enough. We aren’t here to judge; we are here to offer understanding and realistic solutions to your behaviour problems – we are here to help.
