As a child my mum despaired as she had to drag me from the petting zoo. I filled my bedroom with “worm gardens”, caterpillars and ants. I had many hamsters, one of which used to eat breakfast with me every morning and ride in my dressing gown pocket. This fascination with animals led to my adult career.
I concentrate on ensuring that the straightforward, positive methods I use can be carried out by everyone and are individually prescribed for your situation. I enjoy working together with the owner to modify the pet’s behaviour ensuring a much happier, healthier relationship.
