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.

I am Helen and I am the founder and owner of Fairy Tails Dog Training and a proud graduate from the Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training and Behaviour and now Julie Naismith’s Separation Anxiety Pro Trainer programme. I live in Marlow, Buckinghamshire and am mum to a 3-year-old Chihuahua x Jack Russell called Pip who I rescued in 2019. I LOVE my job and am passionate about coaching and supporting dog parents to understand their canine companions inside and out to achieve positive, life-changing results from training and behaviour programs. I continually invest in my own learning to ensure I am using the most up to date, kind and effective behaviour modification methods at all times. Although based in the south of the UK, I can work on separation anxiety cases across the country. I look forward to hearing from you!

I won Dog Trainer of the Year 2020 with the London Prestige Awards and have featured in The Telegraph and write monthly for Animal Talk, a national magazine in South Africa to help promote reward-based methods.
