Member of Association of Pet Dog Trainers Australia (APDT).
I became a part on the Sit Happens team in 2010. With my "special needs" dog Willow, who suffers from generalized anxiety as inspiration, I am now Sit Happens Head Trainer!
Living with a dog who has extensive behavioural issues, I identify and empathise with the day to day struggles of dog owners, but can also, through life experience as well as on the job training and study, offer hope and practical ways to manage and train your four legged friends so they become an even more beloved family member.
Though challenging, Willow has taught me so much about the trials and successes of owning a special needs dog, she acts as me 'guinea pig' when faced with training challenges and as a result has a wide range of cues both verbal and visual. Willow has taught me the power of positive reinforcement and the bond it can create between pets and owners!
