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), the most respected training body in the UK. I am currently studying MSc Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln, following which I will be working towards a CCAB accreditation. Prior to my specialist training I studied Animal Welfare & Society at the University of Winchester.

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.

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!
