About Me

IMG_6093.jpeg

 I have always been fascinated by human and animal behaviour. For many years I have studied how our pets' behaviour is shaped by their unique personalities, emotions, and the environment in which they live.

Whilst I continue my PhD in animal behaviour and welfare, I use my knowledge and experience to help pet owners solve behaviour problems using only kind, reward-based training methods.

I will work with you to establish trust, confidence and a better relationship between you and your pet.

 

My credentials

I am qualified with an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour (distinction) from the University of Lincoln; an Advanced Diploma (RQF Level 5, distinction) from the Centre Of Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE), and I'm currently working on a PhD in Feline Behaviour and Welfare at the University of Lincoln. 

I am proud to hold the following professional accreditations, which means I have been independently assessed as having the knowledge and experience to perform my role safely and professionally, to a very high standard.

Accreditation means that Pet Insurers cover my fees, if you hold a policy that covers you for behaviour.

Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB); 

ABTC registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist (ABTC-CAB); 

ABTC registered Animal Training Instructor (ABTC-ATI);

Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA-CTP).

 

I'm also a full member of the following professional organisations. This  means you and your pet are protected, because I am regulated and bound by professional codes of conduct (and associated complaints policies).

 the Fellowship of Animal Behaviour Clinicians (FABC)

the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC);  

the COAPE Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers (CAPBT) 

the Karen Pryor Academy (KPA)

 and Puppy School

 Casper

My business is dedicated to my cat Casper (pictured above), who's behavioural journey has taken him from a confrontational and unsociable kitten to a delightful, affectionate lap-cat and very best friend. I've lived with Casper and his brother Dylan  since they were kittens, together with Oscar, my beautiful Cocker Spaniel boy, and Squirtle, Pidgey and foster friends, the Blue Cross guinea-pigs.
