Welcome to About Your Dog, your ethical, educational companion animal care service.

My name is Jade and I am a professional trainer and behaviourist working in Hampshire. I am a force-free trainer accredited by the Professional Association of Canine Trainers (PACT) and the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC) as an Animal Training Instructor, the most respected training body in the UK. In 2022 I completed the prestigious MSc Clinical Animal Behaviour course at the University of Lincoln. Prior to this I completed a BA (Hons) in Animal Welfare & Society at the University of Winchester. 

Most recently, I became pre-certified as a Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist with CCAB UK. My final exam is next on the list.

I have extensive experience working with all sorts of dogs. I have volunteered for shelters in both the UK and overseas, with highlights including charities in Thailand and Sri Lanka. I also offer behaviour modification for cats. Alongside my private practice I am fortunate enough to work for Dogs Trust on their Behaviour Support Line.

It is important to me that your training is not only well-informed and based on science, but low-pressure and fun! During your time with me you can expect to get a bespoke learning experience featuring games and challenges to keep you engaged and motivated. More importantly, you will join a community of like-minded people working hard to improve the lives of their animals!
