It is my great pleasure to be fulfilling a life-long dream to help pet parents and their dogs by providing behavior consultations in the comfort of their own homes!
Following the launch of its much anticipated accreditation program for force-free canine trainers in May 2015, the Pet Professional Accreditation Board (PPAB) has announced that I have passed their rigorous exam and am now officially one of only 27 trainers to be Accredited!
This first-ever batch of PPG accredited professionals have earned the specific title – Professional Canine Trainer (Accredited) (PCT-A).
In addition to this, I am A “Truly Dog Friendly” Trainer, Licensed by Victoria Stilwell from the TV Show on Animal Planet “It’s Me Or The Dog”.
I left my native England for Dallas, Texas, in 1999 and took my horse with me! I have been an animal lover my whole life – being with dogs and riding horses since childhood.
In January 2013 my husband, rescued dogs and I moved to Chandler, Arizona and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the area, making new connections and friends and helping the dogs and their families in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, Johnson Ranch, Mesa, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Scottsdale, Tempe, and surrounding areas of the East Valley.
For over 10 years now, friends, happy clients, veterinarians, groomers, pet sitters, dog walkers, rescue groups, other trainers, pet photographers, and now here in AZ, even our local feline behaviorist, have been referring clients to me.
It is my firm belief that the traditional methods of dog training using various forms of physical force and psychological intimidation are not only cruel and unnecessary but hamper the development of the optimum relationship between dog and human.
Such methods often cause dogs to display aggressive behaviors that could otherwise have been avoided. I will NEVER recommend the use of shock, choke or prong collars for your beloved pet.
