Previously a photographer volunteering at a local rescue centre, Kim developed an interest in dog behaviour and training and, after studying with IMDT, ISCP and many other specialists, eventually hung up her camera to devote her time to working with dogs of all ages and backgrounds, from puppies to rescue dogs. Always adding to my professional development, I am proud to be a certified SA Pro Trainer and am here to help you through the challenge of having a dog with separation anxiety.

Hello! I’ve been training dogs for almost ten years. For a couple of years, I focus on training young puppies, coaching first-time dog owners and scent work. I love teaching dog guardians what an amazing thing a dog’s nose is and how they can have fun together and improve their relationship. Where separation anxiety used to be something I preferred to stay away from (like a lot of trainers) I encountered more and more puppies with separation anxiety. While helping these families I noticed my knowledge was too basic but also that I really enjoy working on separation anxiety. So here I am! For me as a person, animal rights are very important and this reflects in my work as a trainer and therapist. I work using positive reinforcement and put the dog’s mental health and wellbeing first. I want dogs to feel happy, comfortable and secure while training and in daily life. I live in Belgium but I help people and dogs all over the world.
After beginning as a dog walker, Jo began Pippin Pets Dog Training to help all new dog owners set their puppies up for success. She learnt reward training from some of the best clicker trainers in the UK and runs many successful puppy classes and scent work courses. Her first dog Reba had terrible Separation Anxiety, and first advice given by vets actually made it worse. This is when she knew she needed to find the best and most ethical methods to help Reba, and for her to have a life again. This led to becoming a certified Pro Trainer by Julie Naismith and operating as a specialist in this area. Based in Surrey, UK, Jo can also help Separation Anxiety clients who live anywhere through her online support packages.
Jess is a dog behaviour nerd based in Hamilton, Ontario. She has a psychology degree from The University of Western Ontario and three years of experience in the field of applied behaviour analysis.

Underdog Training was born as a passion project that uses only evidence-based, modern, and fear-free approaches to shaping canine behaviour. Canine separation anxiety is her main area of interest, after helping her own pup Luna cope with alone-time anxiety. She has completed her SA Pro Certification and is also completing her dog trainer certification through Canine Academy in Milton, Ontario. She strives to help dogs like Lu, and dog guardians like herself, navigate separation anxiety and achieve alone time comfort.
