COVID 19: What Dogs are Telling Us by Saying Nothing at All (co-author Nik Taylor)
I am currently only booking remote (virtual) sessions and will no longer be offering in-home services. I primarily work with dogs who are experiencing fear/anxiety or co-operative care learning. Space is limited so please contact me for availability.
Please refer to APDTNZ Membership Directory or CANZ Accredited Trainers/Behaviour Consultants if you are looking for someone to work with you and your dog in person.
