Hey there, fur-loving friends! As an all-round certified canine behaviourist, I’ve always had a special bond with pups who struggle with being left alone. With great pleasure I can now call myself a SA Pro Trainer and am thrilled to be able to learn from the best and now apply Separation Anxiety training in a very efficient and effective way! I always love learning from other domains other than my own to hone my craft and apply best practices. That’s why I’m so excited to be working with Julie and her team. They know how to think outside of the box – science based, kind and friendly, and with some seriously paw-some protocols, materials, and tech to share. Born in the Netherlands, growing up in South Africa, I now call Utrecht my home where I live with my best friend and 2 furry kids. I used to be a hard-core software engineer, but let’s be real, working with dogs is way more fulfilling. And although I love animals, my love for the 2-legged kind comes in handy, since making a real difference in a pup’s behaviour often depends on their human’s involvement. So, whether you speak Afrikaans, Dutch or English, let’s team up and make life better for you and your furry friend.
I am a Tampa local trainer with a passion for helping both dogs and people in need. I work with owners and dogs to facilitate a force free foundation for training that encourages a healthy and understanding relationship between pup and parent. I have always had a passion for the pups that need the most help. My goal is to do what I am able to help both pet parents and dogs develop a positive outlook on life while fostering skills that can help them succeed in navigating a our human world. Working through separation anxiety can be challenging, but my hope is to be a supportive guide as we work together to tackle that challenge and see success along the way. I also work with minor reactivity issues, as well as basic skills and social development for puppy’s and adult dogs alike. I am currently certified as both a CPDT-KA and an SAPT. I am constantly working towards furthering my education in the field of ethical dog training, and strive to foster a relationship between dogs and pet parents through fun and force free learning.
I live in Harlow on the Essex/ Hertfordshire border. As well as my husband and baby I live with my two rescue sighthounds and 4 rescue chickens! With Sam the Dog Coach I aim to improve the lives of both dogs and their humans. I use only force free and reward based training and offer tailored training to suit your dogs individual needs. As well as being an SA Pro, I am also a Kids Around Dogs (KAD) trainer and a behaviourist and trustee for the charity ‘Project Galgo’. I can help clients who have separation anxiety issues with their dogs anywhere in the world by carrying out the consultations over Zoom.
Helping dogs and their people through separation anxiety and similar behaviors is a passion of mine because comfortable alone time is often such a relief for both the humans and the dogs. Because I know how hard life can be with difficult dogs, I am also really passionate about working with dogs through puppyhood and adolescence to create stable and resilient adult dogs. I want the dogs that I work with to be enthusiastic and unafraid learners who feel comfortable showing me how they really feel. I am a lifelong learner, and I am dedicated to continuing my education, and staying up to date on the most humane and effective ways to train.
My name is Ina Speksnijder and I live in South Holland, the Netherlands. I am a dog trainer since 2005 and have my own dog school since 2018. I find it very important to train fear and force free, therefore I keep following courses to stay up to date. I started the Separation anxiety course to be able to help my clients at the dog school better. At the moment I am also studying as a behaviour therapist. Please feel free to contact me to see if I can help you with your dogs separation anxiety.
I am based near Southampton, Hampshire and specialise in separation anxiexy and helping caregivers work with their dogs at being comfortable home alone. After completing my level 5 Advanced Diploma Applied Animal Behaviour (Canine), I provide 1-2-1 training and behaviour services within your own home. Using force free, reward based methods, I offer tailored training to suit you and your dog’s individual needs. Group puppy and foundation classes are also available.
I aim to meet the needs of clients wherever they may be and whatever their circumstances may dictate. You can opt for face-to-face training sessions or distance-learning Zoom calls. Either way, you will be given a one-to-one training session that will meet you and your dog’s needs. I only offer one-to-one training so that I can focus on the individual needs of you and your dog. You will see results faster and learn the tools you need to live a happier and more relaxed life together.

Hi, I am Paula – The owner of Paula’s Pet Services (Est.2015) and a graduate of Absolute Dogs Pro Dog Trainer course (AD – PDT), and graduate of Julie Naismith’s Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer Course, (Cert. SAPT) My heart goes out to all of you owners who are struggling with SA. I have worked as a dog walker before dog training and have worked alongside lots of owners to manage SA and enable them an hour or 4 of freedom to nip out and go for meals or go shopping. As a SA Pro Trainer, I would love to help you understand how to help your dog and work towards your independence in managing this for yourselves too. It’s important that you can ask me anything, no question is a stupid question. I want for you to understand the process and trust how it can work for you and your dog. As a force free and fear free trainer, we will work as a team and I’ll be here to support you all the way, in understanding what is going on with your dog and to help them in the best way possible. Separation Anxiety can be a lonely and overwhelming pathway, but you don’t have to do this alone.
