I have more than 15 years experience solving all kinds of canine behaviour problems, at home and in rescue. A bad experience with a old fashioned dog trainer inspired me to learn more about dog behaviour, and it is because of him, that I wall never use harsh methods when training and rehabilitating dogs. I work privately with clients in Dundee and the surrounding area with dogs of all ages, breeds and issues including anxiety, aggression and hyperactivity. In 2009 I was proud to publish a book about dog behaviour and training. How to be the Perfect Pack Leader (by Caroline Jenkins) remains popular today and a follow up is expected very shortly.

Dog Vs Postman

So, your dog barks like mad at the postman, the window cleaner and even the bin men! But why does he hate them so much – he’s never even met them?

Why does my dog…

Maslows Pyramid of Needs. Physiological needs are at the bottom, then Safety, then Love and Belonging, then Esteem and at the top of the pyramid we have self actualisation.

…and how can I stop him? Why does anyone do anything? The answer is simple really; we do what we do because it works. We do what we do because it makes us feel good; because on some level it…

Success Story

Steve and Jenny When my client first contacted me about her dogs, Steve and Jenny, she described a nightmare. Steve didn’t like other dogs, and he reacted violently to the mere whiff of another dog. He didn’t even have to…
