Hello! I am a French dog consultant, specialized in Separation Anxiety issues. I have been severely bitten by a dog when I was a child and went on desensitization myself to be able to interact with animals again. I am passionate about the way they communicate with their body language, very useful to help with SA! I also love helping humans and would be really happy to guide you through your SA journey.

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 have worked with dogs for over 10 years and I am the founder of the highly respected Nosey Barker Training School. Through my work as a qualified trainer I discovered a passion for supporting dogs and their families with more challenging behaviour which inspired me to set up Behaviour Support by Kim. My ability to support canine and human learners with kindness and sensitivity allows me to really understand the struggles each family are suffering. Working with me means you will receive help with behaviour modification based on the most up to date science using only kind methods. Each plan is carefully designed to improve your dogs behaviour and enhance your bond so that you can enjoy the companionship you once dreamed of. I specialise in separation anxiety for all dogs and small dog generalised anxiety. Separation anxiety is heart breaking for you and your dog but there is hope! I support all dogs to overcome the fear of being left home alone, which enables their family to leave without feeling guilty or worry about their dogs happiness. I have first-hand experience of how debilitating sharing your life with a separation anxiety dog is. Diggory, my poodle, showed signs of separation anxiety from the minute he joined me at 9 weeks old. Following a structured programme I have changed how stressed Diggory was and got back my freedom! I want to help you achieve the same! I am a Certified Canine Behaviourist and take my own continued professional development seriously. Using the latest scientific, ethical methods to ensure you and your dog succeed.
