Supporting Cats, Dogs & Their People Towards Behaviour & Training Success!

Individualised in-practice training - I am happy to consult at the practice, &/or co-consult with you. Also to provide help for your patients who find it difficult to come into the clinic, are not comfortable being handled for examinations/minor procedures, settling in kennels, wearing muzzles, etc. - this can be worked on out of the clinic context, then gradually integrated to the practice setting. Low stress handling in practice is a passion!

Group classes - these are run on an occasional/on-demand basis. Classes are small & personal, & always fun!

Pre-Pet Counselling - in an ideal world, helping potential owners make the right choices & prepare for their new pet before adoption would be optimal, & prevent many unhappy or poor welfare outcomes.

I am a Veterinary Technician Specialist in Behaviour (VTS), & am a Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB) - ASAB accredited (for cats & dogs). I see behaviour cases on veterinary referral/delegation, & am always happy to collaborate on cases with referring practices, so to ensure the best possible care for patients. (Complete a referral/delegation form & find further resources here.) 

I have worked with animals, their owners & the veterinary community since 2000 &, with my university nursing background, scientific, up-to-date learning & teaching principles remain very close to my heart. I bring the same principles of care, empathy & kindness, as well as a modern approach, to teaching both my animal & human learners in my behaviour & training work.  

I hold a BSc (Hons) in Animal Behaviour & Welfare, a VTS in Behaviour (& Oncology), & am an ASAB accredited CCAB. I have also certified as an FABC Cat & Dog Behaviour consultant, am FearFree certified, & I am qualified trainer - certified with Karen Pryor Academy, am an ABTCouncil registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist & Registered Training Instructor, as well as being a full/assessed member of the APDT UK

As I have a foot firmly in the camps of veterinary, welfare, behaviour & training, I understand the intricate balance of health, behaviour & welfare, & recognise the teamwork required to maintain optimal physical & emotional health. I have a real passion for welfare, as well as for nursing & practicing clinical behavioural care to the highest achievable level.

I regularly work with International Cat Care/International Society of Feline Medicine, BSAVA, Fear Free, Karen Pryor Academy & other education providers in the UK, internationally & online to provide educational content, presentations coursework & reviewing, etc. for vets, RVNs, lay staff, training/behaviour professionals, & owners. I provide in-practice CPD, & am happy to help & support the practice team in any way that is useful.

Please feel free to browse through our website to explore our services or, to refer/delegate or discuss a case, contact Inspiring Pet Teaching.

As you will be aware, when recommending or referring your clients for training/behaviour modification, the duty of care remains with the vet - so we hope you appreciate the benefit of working with an RVN VTS CCAB. By referring/delegating to Inspiring Pet Teaching you can be confident that your patients will be taught by an educated & qualified professional, who is fully insured & works to a strong code of ethics. Your clients will be as valued & cared for, as they are by you. Your input will be sought whenever appropriate, you will be provided with written reports & updates, & I will always endeavour to work with you as part of your patient’s care team.
