In most cases I start by suggesting an initial 1-2-1 Behavioural Consultation in your home. This allows me to properly assess each individual case. During the session we will talk through the problems you’ve been facing and the dogs whole life history in order to allow me to gain a holistic understanding of the situation. From here I discuss your options in taking steps to modify this behaviour whilst explaining the psychology underpinning everything.
After this first session you will practice the training methods that have been shown to you, and usually arrange a follow-up over a period of time following this new program.
It is this method that I find works best -teach the owner how to train their dog. Giving people the tools to modify their pets behaviour. Ultimately I want to teach people how to spend the most time possible enjoying their pets. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than restoring harmony in people’s relationships with ‘man’s best friend’.

We contacted Annie with deep concerns about possible aggression issues with our Jack Russell, more in hope than expectation. Annie not only gave us the excellent training tips that helped us correct the issue, but also explained the reasoning behind his behaviour, and how the training would correct this. She had a wealth of knowledge about the breed and taught us simple, but very effective techniques. Very pleased that we found Annie and would happily recommend her.
My puppy and I had a great experience with Annie. Her love for dogs shines through in the work she does. She taught me many skills to use from day 1 that shaped his positive behaviour from a very young age. She was always available for advice via phone and email . She is very professional and also very friendly. I would highly recommend her.
Thanks Annie the training has made a huge difference to the dogs and we are so much more relaxed too. It’s great working with you.
We have a Labrador dog called Buddy. He had a fear of steps , it didn’t effect him to much in our old home, but we moved to a cottage with quite a few steps inside and out . Buddy was stuck in one room , he couldn’t get into the kitchen or the garden. He was sad and it was making myself and my husband sad . I found Annie website and gave her a call . Annie came the next day , and started working with Buddy. She was fantastic.. Buddy is like a new dog . He goes up and down all the steps inside and out , I cannot recommend Annie highly enough
I contacted Annie when Archie started behaving aggressively towards other dogs and i couldn’t predict his behaviour, I was worried he may bite. Within just three sessions Archie was noticeably far more comfortable around other dogs and now is just ignoring them!
Annie’s love of dogs and patience is remarkable. After each session she sent me with detailed notes and feedback. I saw a huge change in my dog’s behaviour. I would strongly recommend Annie and have done to many of my friends and family. Even now still, she has remained a superb resource.
Our Leo has always been a bit nervy when out and about, and when we were invited to a dog show, our first thought was ‘there are going to be people and dogs everywhere, ahhhh!!’ On finding Annie, she was professional and knowledgable from day one. She assessed Leo and instantly recognised that he had some anxiety and behavioural issues which needed to be worked on before entering him to a dog show. Annie worked closely with me and Leo, in particular with his behaviour on the lead and how to deal with distractions. We took him to built up areas which I would not normally have had the confidence to do. It was great fun to bond with Leo as well. My confidence grew with learning how to handle him and overall had a fantastic experience with Annie. Leo was so good at the dog show, he really enjoyed himself and he even won three prizes! Go back a few months and I would never have imagined putting him into the dog show! Thank you Annie.
We took Cooper to the park and he made some friends and didn’t bark at one dog! He played and had fun and didn’t bark in the car like he used to. He seems a changed dog! Thanks for the training- everything is great with him now.
