"The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands but in seeing with new eyes."

Paul-Emile Victor

Welcome!

This is an ever evolving site which is not just about dog training.  I'm as interested in people as I am in dogs. Dog ownership can at times be more stressful than rewarding, and sometimes we need some additional support to survive and eventually thrive. The physical and emotional wellbeing of your entire family unit, humans and animals, matters to me.  

Please check out the site, including my blog. 

If you then decide you'd like to work with me, I'd love to hear from you.

You love your dog and want to live your best life together.
You just need some guidance and support. 
You're ready and willing to make some changes.

I can help you prioritise your efforts by:

* Helping you to better understand what your dog is trying to tell you.

This will help us to:

* Identify what to STOP doing because it either isn't helping or is making matters worse.

* Identify what to START doing that will be of the most help in the short and longer term. 

My special interests are:

Having a Long Term Vision of a great companion.
* Before you buy/ adopt: I can support you to choose a dog/ puppy that is likely to become a great companion within your lifestyle.
*After you buy/ adopt: I can suggest small daily actions  to take you and your dog towards your goal of developing a great relationship. 
Dogs with BIG feelings (e.g. reactive/ traumatised/ hyperactive)
*I get it. I've lived with this myself.  It means BIG feelings for you too. 
I will support YOU, so that together we can support your dog.

PREVENTION - The Underused Tool

You can be a warm, loving dog owner and also set boundaries for your dog.
Boundaries help you and your dog.
They prevent many training and behaviour problems even starting.
They give you breathing space from a problem that's already begun.
They keep dogs, other animals, and people, safe.
