Dog Behaviour Help and Training
Specialist in Dog Behaviour and Training in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire
First, why not search for your chosen topic or problem from my blog stories of the more recent of those I’ve helped over the years as a Behaviour Advisor, Trainer and Teacher – dogs of all ages, all breeds, all sizes, all problems and their humans – and discover ways in which I can also help you and your dogs.
I keep up to date with the latest science in dog behaviour and positive training methods (NB: ‘positive’ does not mean ‘permissive’). Check my qualifications and read my online resources and guides, including information on behaviour issues and on the new dog law. If you have any questions or hesitations, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Hear from my clients:
3 weeks ago I was at the end of my tether and it was me or the dogs (and I suspect my husband may have chosen the dogs!). I didn’t know how to stop all the barking, dreaded callers to the house and generally wondered why on earth I had dogs. It has been hard, the first 10 days or so was stressful trying to remember all the things to do, I lost my temper, I shouted, the dogs seemed worse than ever before but now I am seeing results, it feels good, I feel good. The dogs are brilliant, I love them again.
Thank you for coming to meet us. Both Michael and I expected someone judgemental and you were nothing like that at all. We really felt that you considered our emotions as much as the dogs’ and made sure that we understood why we were to behave in a different way and see it from the dogs’ point of view. We both thought you were lovely!
Extremely prompt telephone call after my initial email. I felt empowered following the visit, and confident I will learn good leadership! Delighted with Theo. William (our Dalmation) is already calmer. I wont give up on him now Theos in his and our lives.
Theo has been very supportive from her first phone call following my email enquiry, calling back with further suggestions even before she met us. Trudi has changed already, really calmed down, and we feel confident that with Theos support there is positive hope that we will get there.
Punctual and professional. Almost instant calmer dog, just by looking at the situation from a different angle (ie dog angle)! Theo was a calming influence even when Ben gave his warning sign usually preceding aggression. We were impressed. Thanks again.
Very friendly, pitched perfectly for the whole family – and good follow up!Was very impressed with Theo, she was very helpful and extremely easy to talk to. Theo explained everything very well to us both, making everything easier to understand
Theo gave me confidence with my dogs whichI very rarely feel with a stranger in the house. I was very impressed with the service received. My only regret is not asking for help months ago!!
The service we received was prompt, informative, efficient and well explained. We would have no hesitation in recommending Theo to any other family with similar problems, I now have a more relaxed dog and the family is more relaxed!
Having had a trainer over previously to help with Dollys biting and obsessive behaviour who had very negative methods in my opinion, we did a lot of research to find Theo and she lived up to our expectations.
Both of us were very impressed with Theo. She was absolutely fantastic and explained everything well. All our questions were answered in great detail. We couldnt ask for more. Warm and friendly. She gave us back our optimism that Polo isnt a lot cause. I would have no hesitation in recommending Theo,already have!
