I have been involved with and owned dogs for 28 years, predominantly Sighthounds and Collies. After taking time out from a successful career in business to raise a family, I decided to pursue a career doing something I had a passion for – dogs!
Having spent many years working voluntarily in rescue, problem dogs were not uncommon and I enjoyed helping them resolve their fears either in rescue or as foster dogs in my own home. This was accomplished by reading text books and using experience gained with my own dogs over the years and I soon realised it was a subject I would like to learn more about, so in 2013 I enrolled with the British College of Canine Studies.
I completed my Diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviour and passed with a Distinction. I also hold certificates in Canine First Aid and am currently studying Puppy Care & Dog Law.
I have worked with many dogs over the years, both pets and rescue. Initially with Greyhounds ending their racing career helping them to adjust to their lives in a home as a pet, and in more recent years with foreign rescues, Romanian, Spanish, Irish and Greek. These dogs present different challenges behaviourally to your average pet, many having lived on the streets and had little human contact and I think this is one of the fields I have a lot to offer.
My Goal at Any Dog
To provide positive, humane and practical solutions for dogs and their owners where there is an established need for change of behaviour in either the dog, the owner or both parties.
