The unique combination of knowledge, practical skills and experience I have acquired over the years informs and guides my multidimensional approach when designing and working on projects with dogs, dog owners, students, staff and other professionals in the Animal Sector and the Pet Dog Industry.
I am a freelance consultant with broad experience in dog behaviour, training, welfare and management. Additionally, I have senior managerial experience in operations, education and evaluation in the armed forces, the public sector, the private and charity sector.
My research interests lie in the areas of Dog Assisted Interventions, Human – Dog bond and Welfare.
I regularly see dogs on behavioural referral from veterinary surgeons and also deliver online dog behaviour and training sessions.
My memberships include: the Board of Trustees of the Society for Companion Animal Studies (SCAS, United Kingdom), the Animal Assisted Interventions Alliance of the University of Queensland (Australia), the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC, United Kingdom) and the Kynos Nous, Dog Assisted Interventions (Greece).
And finally, I am also the author of three books on dogs.
