am an experienced Clinical Animal Behaviourist, qualified to treat
behaviour problems in dogs, cats, and other pets. I work with clients throughout
Suffolk and Norfolk and into Essex and Cambridgeshire, and have a training
venue in mid Suffolk.
Behaviour problems can be distressing for owners and often indicate underlying
psychological distress in the affected animal. My aim as a Pet Behaviour
Counsellor is to offer professional advice and assistance that improves your
quality of life and that of your pet and restores the relationship between
you. I carry out
in your home, and use all the information available to provide an accurate
diagnosis of the underlying causes of the behaviour problem. I then work with
you to design and implement a reward-based treatment plan which meets your
needs and suits your circumstances.
To help owners and their
puppies get off to the best possible start, I also run
socialisation classes and offer
one-to-one sessions (home visits).
If you would
like a puppy visit to help you get off to a good start with socialisation
and training prior to starting classes, this can be booked directly
The next set of classes are on Tuesday evenings starting on 1st May
and can be booked
For older dogs who require
training I offer
at my outdoor venue (home visits also available) - these sessions can be
completely tailored to your goals. Short training sessions or group classes
are not suitable for dogs who display fearful, aggressive or vocal behaviour
towards dogs or people - for these issues a behaviour consultation is the
most appropriate and effective approach.
NEW - "TEENAGER CLASS": I am also now running
training classes for young dogs aged 6-18 months, who have been through my
puppy classes. You can book a place in Wednesday evening classes starting
on 2nd May, or Sunday morning classes starting on 13th May
here (more dates will be offered soon!). If you have a young dog who
you think would benefit from training classes but you didn't come to puppy
class, please contact me to arrange a one-to-one session first (so we can
ensure that a class environment is right for them).
you're not sure which approach is most suitable for your dog, or you would
like more information, please
contact me for a chat.
