My Credentials

No national standards for dog trainers exist, unfortunately, which can make finding a qualified professional to work with difficult. I’ve spent many years studying and testing to ensure that I am employing the latest scientifically sound, up-to-date practices when helping my clients and their humans.

Fear Free Pets

Founded by “America’s Veterinarian,” Dr. Marty Becker, and developed by hundreds of experts in behavior, medicine, and handling, Fear Free has become one of the single most transformative initiatives in the history of companion animal practice.

INTODogs Certification

INTODogs are a members-only organisation for Dog Trainers, Behaviourists and other dog professionals, promoting positive, kind methods in order to enhance the quality of life for owners and dogs. We seek to promote the highest standards of professional conduct.

Membership offers exchange of ideas, support and advice but not for the promotion of any one method to the exclusion of all else (so long as it is in accordance with the gentle ethic of INTODogs). Our members have high ethical standards with the welfare of the dog central to the work and keep abreast continually with new regulations and teachings.
