I’ve been in the dog training industry for 16 years and had my own dog suffer from SA, that’s what got me interested in the topic and find a better way than just letting them ” cry it out” or that good old ” they just have to deal with it” I’m so glad to be able to now share this knowledge with owners!
I am a Family Dog Mediator, specializing in dogs that are shy, fearful, or have general and/or separation anxiety. I partner with dog guardians and their canine family members in their unique journey to living their best lives together.

I specialise in helping owners with dogs that can be difficult, including dogs with separation related distress. If that’s you, you’re not alone! Many dogs develop problem behaviours that even the most loving families can find challenging. I work with dogs like yours one to one, to get to the bottom of the difficulties you’re having. I’ll help you to find practical, force-free ways to have a more rewarding relationship with your dog. Insured, accredited, professional – and trained by Julie Naismith herself!
