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.

My name is Jo and I started Outward-Hound in 2010 after getting our RSPCA rescue dog, Charlie. When I got Charlie from the RSPCA, he had separation anxiety, he would bark constantly if he was left alone. He would pant, tremble and pace, never being able to settle, he even tried to claw his way through the kitchen door! It was Charlie who inspired me to start Outward-Hound, first of all, offering dog walking and home boarding services, which then led me to my passion for dog training. At Outward-Hound, training is not just about training your dog to ‘stay’ (although we do teach that!), I am passionate about helping owners get the best from their dogs. And now as a SA Pro Trainer, I am able to help more dogs, who, like my Charlie, struggle to cope when left alone. Seeing dogs go from delinquents to happy, content canine companions is my passion.
