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!

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 courses starting on Sunday 19th July at Bowburn (DH6 5AT), and I will be continuing with my popular online training classes, one-to-one sessions, workshops and behaviour consultations.

The online training classes are particularly useful if you have a puppy that is too young to come to the hall, if you have a dog who cannot cope in a hall environment, or if you or any of your family members are still self-isolating. I am still offering online support in a variety of ways. To find out more click here.
