In 2020, I am celebrating 40 years of working professionally with dogs, cats, horses and other animal species, including 21 years of specialising in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training!

I provide Puppy and Adult Dog Training classes, Pet Behaviour Consultations, Puppy Home Visits, Tellington TTouch for Companion Animals and Horses, Animal Centred Education (ACE) workshops and a variety of specialist sessions.

There are many different training methods in use today and, as a result, new and imaginative ideas are emerging all of the time. I promote only kind, positive methods, and through literature and recognised educational courses, I constantly update my skills, knowledge, and awareness of animal behaviour and training.

By sharing this knowledge, I can offer you and your companion animal a great foundation for building a long and happy relationship!

Classes and courses - online and at Bowburn Community Centre (DH6 5AT)

UPDATE July 2020: This is a very difficult and challenging time for us and our pets and I am here to support you wherever I can.

There will be new Puppy and Progress small group courses starting on Friday 17th and Sunday 19th July at Bowburn, and I will be continuing with my popular Online Training Classes, One-to-One sessions, Workshops and Pet Behaviour Consultations.

The online training classes are particularly useful if:

  • You have a puppy that is too young to come to the hall
  • You have a dog who cannot cope in a hall environment
  • You or any of your family members are still self-isolating
