Theo Stewart – ‘The Dog Lady’


Theo StewartBehaviourist, consultant, therapist, trainer and ‘dog supernanny’!
Specialising in positive behaviour and training solutions with caring canine owner support.

BBC 3 Counties Radio Resident Behaviourist.

Behaviourist & behavioural therapist for Potton Vets

I have many years experience helping well over 2000 dog owners which totals at least 5000 dogs of all breeds, sizes ages and problems in one-to-one own-home sessions through all manner of circumstances and difficulties. I call these my ‘stories’ and you can read the more recent here: stories

“There are so many different books, TV programmes and methods nowadays, all saying different things, some good and some bad, some kind and some cruel. I like to act as a filter on your behalf. I have worked one-to-one in the homes of several thousands of dogs over the years, helping their humans to achieve happy, relaxed, trustworthy and self-controlled companions through understanding – without resorting to force, domination or punishment. I constantly keep up to date with the latest courses and thinking, but there are no short cuts to years of hands-on experience”.
