Had a great training session with Rox this evening. I had some some excellent advice. Spot on animal communication skills and gave me a good idea what Rox was thinking about.

Managed to find some new ways to help Rox progress to become a more balanced dog. Lots of work to be done but well worth it. Thank you.

My Mission

To empower owners and dogs through coaching and training. To bring awareness to owners that dogs are energetic beings who need to be recognised as such, using all of my tools my mission is to bring balance to both ends of the lead.

I recently took my extremely nervous dog for a 1-1 with both Nina and Gabriella. It was great to be working through some training exercises with the additional feedback via Gabs and the animal communication side of things. It bought a new dimension to our training session and was good to get an idea of how Cookie was feeling throughout the process which was subsequently able to guide the training in the best direction. I came away feeling very positive and reassured and Cookie was comfortable and relaxed throughout. Would highly recommend.
