Having worked in the companion animal industry for over 6 years, I have successfully helped rehabilitate rescue dogs with a range of problem behaviours at the RSPCA NSW while also conducting behavioural assessments on surrendered dogs. I have been providing training advice for pet parents through group classes and one-on-one lessons – from puppies to senior pets.
I have extensive hands-on experience with dogs of all breeds and sizes and acquired current, science-based knowledge of dog behaviour through an industry leading dog behavioural training course, Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services (Delta Institute).
I am a full professional member of the Delta Institute and the Pet Professional Guild – both organisations promoting force-free, modern, science-based training methods. I recently gained my Fear Free Certificate and became member of the Fear Free community who promote the emotional wellbeing of pets.
Regularly attending conferences and seminars keeps me up-to-date with the latest scientific findings so pet parents can be sure they get the latest best practice information during classes and individual lessons.

To address problem behaviours such as fear, leash reactivity or excessive barking.
