Toward the end of my career as a science teacher, I began studying to turn my lifelong doggy hobby into a new career. I qualified as a franchised Puppy School tutor, a Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CTDI), a scent dog tutor, and also as a Certified Animal Behaviourist (CAB). I then decided to specialise in the issue of separation anxiety due to the real suffering it can cause in both dogs and their owners. The SA Pro training has given me the tools to really help dogs get over their home-alone issues. Although currently based in Oxfordshire, I am a northerner with a straightforward attitude and a positive belief that with the right tools we can make a big difference. Before learning about this method, I found separation anxiety cases difficult, but now am pleased and excited about the difference that is made using this clever technique.
