About Us

Having worked with animals all my life, I have spent a long time studying their behaviour and how to improve the bond between owner and pet. To help improve my knowledge, I have completed several stages of education. My latest achievement is gaining a Master's in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the leading university in Animal Behaviour, the University of Lincoln. 

I work with both dogs and cats to help understand you understand and hopefully fix their problems. 

We cover Trefonen, Oswestry, Wrexham, Pant, Llanymenach, Chester and some of Mid and North Wales via in Person Consultations. We also cover the rest of the UK via virtual Teams meetings.
