'I live near Swindon in Wiltshire with my three dogs and two cats. Because of my dogs, rescue work is very important to me, I help a few rescue centres with behaviour advice and by fostering whenever I can. I usually have a foster staying with me which is an incredibly rewarding experience, it's just letting them go off to their new homes when they are ready that is the hardest part!

I am an experienced and qualified behaviourist and trainer and have worked with dogs for over ten years. Dogs aren't just a job for me, they are my passion and I love working with dogs and their owners everyday.

I have worked hard to gain a degree in Canine Behaviour and Training to provide customers with assurance of up to date knowledge and techniques. I believe very strongly in positive reward based training and take a holistic approach to dealing with behavioural problems so that they are dealt with at the root cause rather than just dealing with the symptoms of the problem.

I have worked with a large variety of problems but specialise in fear and aggression.'
