I have over 10 years of experience working with dogs with many different behavioural issues. One of my own dogs began to display severe separation anxiety prior to moving home. This led to my desire to specialise in separation anxiety issues, and wanting to understand from a scientific point of view how I could not only help my own dog but other dogs out there! Being a SA PRO Trainer (which I am so proud to be a part of this organisation) will now give me tools to help those SA dogs. Through my work to date I have learnt to understand how anxiety impacts both dogs and owners emotionally and physically. Dr John Bradshaw (a leading expert in separation anxiety) wrote an article in the Guardian that included the quote “most dogs hate being left on their own. Dogs can be trained to cope with being left but few owners are aware that they can (indeed should) do this”. Using peer-reviewed scientific evidence, safe training using desensitization to keep dogs under their panic threshold, our aim and desire is to help as many dogs as possible to stay safe regardless of the source of the behaviour (separation anxiety, isolation, or frustration). Following our step-by-step programme, we go at the pace your dog dictates by ensuring we remain under its panic threshold. We use easy to follow steps and by setting uncomplicated, achievable goals. Although I am based in the UK, I can work with clients over a worldwide basis as all our sessions take place via video link in the comfort of your own home. During the programme, we provide ongoing patient and empathetic support to ensure you and your dog remain motivated.
Hi! I’m a French behavior consultant and I specialize in SA and rescue dogs. My goal is to support and help guardians who struggle with their dog’s SA. Many dogs end up or are stuck in shelters because of SA, and I’d like to make a change. I also love doing prevention with puppies and newly adopted dogs for them to be comfortable from the start with alone time. I know how hard it can be to live with an SA dog. That’s why coaching humans is a crucial part of my job. It is very important for me to support guardians in the SA journey – the ups, the downs, the doubts and the final freedom! Working as a team and helping guardians reach their goals is what I’m really passionate about. Supporting dogs’ AND humans’ mental health and well-being is the reason why I love working with SA cases. I only use positive reinforcement and science-based methods. I live in France and help French-speaking and English-speaking people all around the world! Do not hesitate to contact me for more info.
Hey! I’m a dog trainer and a cat coach so I’m here for help with your dog, your cat or both if they aren’t getting along. 😉 I specialized in reactivity, stress (chronic stress), anxiety and of course separation anxiety in dogs. I love to help dogs (and cats) to a relaxed and happy life. There is so much conflicting information out there about dogs and the way we “should” be training or treating them. I would like to make a change by informing about science-based, fear- and force-free training methods. Because yes, there is another way which is loving and gentle to dogs and also yes, they work for all dogs, regardless of breed or age. 😉 My own dog Nala is the living proof of what remarkable changes are possible when you apply modern dog training. She is a lovely Kooikerhondje, born in 2015 and she had taught me so much. I love what I do and I’m very grateful to be able to do this and help dogs and their parents to a more relaxed and happy life together.
I’ve always had a passion for improving animal welfare by helping humans learning to train more effectively! I have conducted empirical research focused on the human/animal bond and its impact on both owners and pets during graduate school and my philosophy is that through better training and improved human/dog relationships, the number of animals relinquished to shelters will be significantly reduced! Since starting my professional career in dog training my interest has been in separation-related problem behaviors commonly known as separation anxiety. I offer fear-free separation anxiety training that focuses on pet communication, socialization, and science-based behavioral theory. In addition to be a SA Pro certified trainer, I am a certified professional dog trainer, a fear-free certified trainer, and an Elite Fear Free Certified Professional. I have many years of experience (in various capacities within the animal world, from a veterinary nurse to boarding manager, to certified dog trainer) in supporting pet owners making the needed changes in their pet’s habits. My passion and focus for the past three years have been learning all I can about canine separation anxiety-related behaviors. I have attended seminars in the subject matter and I have trained under the mentoring of one of the world’s leading experts in Separation Anxiety. I maintain my education up to date so I can provide the quality all dogs and owners deserve. My goal is to help as many owners and dogs as I can overcome the debilitating fear that makes home departures impossible and turns otherwise great dogs into fearful, unhappy dogs.
I am a Dog Trainer and SA Pro based in East Yorkshire, but also working remotely anywhere. I have two Border Collies, two Cats, and a husband of my own and run classes and 1-2-1 training sessions. I love helping people and their dogs become a stronger team and assisting you to understand each other better! I run Separation Anxiety-specific programmes to help your dog build their confidence and ability to be alone, which in turn gives owners the assurance that they can leave their dogs alone.
