For many owners, their dream of a dog enhancing their lives are dashed when their dog’s behaviour becomes a source of stress. If you've ever wished you could take your dog on a relaxing walk or to a café while feeling confident in their behaviour, I can give you hope. Through the use of positive and balanced methods, I'll show you how to create more engagement and trust in your dog wherever you take them.
Regardless of breed, or whether your dog is a puppy, a senior or a rescue dog, you can have the connection and relationship you've always wanted.

I'm knowledgeable in all training methodologies and don't follow a one-size-fits-all approach.
I want to help you build a balanced dog that is part of your family by structuring your relationship the right way. Through my dog training and behaviour modification programs you’ll learn:
You’ll help your dog become calmer, happier and a pleasant addition to your family.
