Ethical, effective and science led dog training across London & Worldwide. Specialising in puppy raising, reactivity & separation anxiety!
I have worked as a canine behaviourist and trainer for 12 years and throughout this time I have worked with dogs with a wide spectrum of anxiety problems. Specialising in separation anxiety has allowed me to hone my skills with dogs who struggle to be home alone to provide a comprehensive program to help you and your dog.

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.
I found my calling while photographing adoptable dogs for local rescues in 2013. Intrigued by the challenge of helping the dogs feel comfortable for the camera, I started studying canine behaviour and soon adopted Zoe Moo – one of the dogs I had photographed. I created DOG IS RIGHT to help worried dogs and their stressed people. I work primarily with separation-related behaviours whether that is anxiety, frustration, boredom, fear, or a combination of the above. Whatever the reason your dog is not able to relax while home alone and you are consumed with stress from dealing with the aftermath of their panic moments – we work together to help your dog learn that absences are safe so you can go about your life while they snooze. Thanks to all the lessons from Moo I am especially drawn to the ‘worried’ dogs with endless patience to help their people speak dog more fluently so they can communicate better and navigate the world confidently together. My special interests include social play, fear & aggression, practical enrichment solutions, and training games. I live in Vancouver, WA with my husband, three dogs, and a rotating crew of special fosters from Humane Society for Southwest Washington.
