Your local canine and feline behaviourist in the Blue Mountains area
Journeying through zoo keeping, vet nursing, animal shelters and pounds and even working with endangered animals in Africa, paved the way to who I am today and the job I was born for. With my studies and over 15 years of experience, I am a highly qualified animal behaviourist, and sought-after educator and lecturer in the animal industry.
While working as the Senior Behaviourist in animal shelters in NSW, too often people would surrender their animals because they simply misunderstood what they were saying, but I knew I could speak their language, so I launched Animal Behaviour Experts in 2010 to help owners understand their pets. Since then I have been given multiple opportunities to have regular appearances in the media and am often seen on TV spreading the word to help improve the lives of animals by teaching people just how amazing they are.
Every animal deserves to feel safe and that's why I do what I do.
Your local canine and feline behaviourist in the Hills District area
A love of both feline and canine behaviour, mixed with a natural love of science, has helped me gain the skills to provide the most up-to-date, science-based training methods that are positive, reward-based, fun and effective.
The connection and love I have for animals all shapes and sizes started when I was little and has grown ever since. After beginning my studies to become a veterinarian, I sat in on a lecture on animal behaviour and psychology and realised I had a new direction; Animal Behaviour. I was involved in research projects with wildlife in Africa and Australia but knew I belonged with companion animals. Once I discovered my path, I worked closely with other behaviourists in the industry discovering more about animal behaviour and how I could use my skills to help them both in shelters and in a loving home- creating behaviour management plans for shelter dogs and cats and assisting them in becoming adoptable family members.
After having a family of my own, I have now shifted toward guiding new cat and dog owners through puppy and kitten classes as well as in-home assistance to those who are in need. I love helping pet owners have a stronger bond with their pets and my extensive skills, qualifications and experience have made me a unique and talented Animal Behaviour Expert.
