A note from Bethany....
'Undoubtedly, dogs are my life. My own dogs, your dogs.. all dogs!
I also love people and working to help change the lives of dog owners. The love that owners have for their dogs mean that when issues arise, this can have a severe impact on their day to day lives.
I can help change that!
Whatever your issue I can help. My aim from working together is to enable you to feel supported, give you have a plan to move forward and for your dog to progress in leaps and bounds through training that they enjoy!
All the training that I do is using kind and effective techniques used to build confidence, create long lasting change and cement the bond that you have with your dog.
I consider myself a multi species family therapist!
No problem too big, no puppy too small!'
