Have a calm, obedient dog in just a few days with this FREE 4-part video series.
I was rapidly heading towards my 40’s… and knew it was time to make the jump to becoming a professional dog trainer and behaviorist. Until then, I’d been sitting behind a desk with a career in middle management… a lifetime of helping my team sell as many cases of wine into supermarkets as possible. I’m […]
Dogs and puppies NOT coming when we call them can be one of the most frustrating things! We ask nicely, we call them, we shout and scream… We even begin to wonder if our dog or puppy has a hearing problem! Even worse is when they’re running wild at the park and we have an […]
So you want to stop your dog barking without hurting them? Well I’d love to help you. Barking dogs can be an absolute nightmare, from yapping puppies, to barking dogs around the house, to sad dogs whining at home because they’ve been left on their own… And the good news is you are NOT alone! […]
Recently I celebrated what I thought was my 43rd birthday. I posted a photo on Facebook and immediately started receiving emails from good friends telling me that I was only 42! It was amazing–after working it out again on my fingers and a few hours letting it sinking in I felt like I had just […]

If you have a new puppy or you’re struggling with an older puppy, run puppy training classes or you just love dogs, then you’ll love this podcast. It’s all about a refreshing new approach to puppy training.
When the walk becomes dangerous…
Taking your dog for a walk is supposed to be one of those pleasant experiences; relaxing, enjoyable and memorable. However for many people it’s memorable for all the wrong reasons! Dragged down the street, pulled off your feet, arm yanked out of its socket, damaged wrists and a lot of stress.
