About me, and About Your Dog

Welcome!

I'm Jade, and I'm here to help! I am a qualified dog trainer and behaviourist living in Winchester, Hampshire, and you're here because you want to learn a little more about me!

Favourite dog breeds: Bloodhound (see below), Patterdale Terrier, Any sort of Sighthound

Areas of special interest: Trauma related care (for example, overseas rescues or puppy farm survivors), The contribution of pain to behaviour, Grooming & Handling

Dog training motto: "Nothing changes if nothing changes" (Courtney Stevens)

When I'm not with dogs I am watching Brooklyn 99, reading crime novels or attempting to crochet.
