Karma Paws Cat Behaviour

Canine Behaviour Consultations

Welcome to my canine behaviour page. Along with my qualifications and experience in canine behaviour, I also have a natural aptitude for understanding the dynamic between pets and their people, which enables me to advise on how they can improve their relationship and resolve dog behaviour problems using kind, force-free methods.


Dogs are very much part of family life and when their behaviour becomes a problem, it can be difficult to manage and cause a great deal of stress, which is why I offer in-home dog behaviour consultations within 25 miles of Swadlincote, Derbyshire and also remotely, if appropriate as this depends on the nature of the issue.


Canine behaviour problems come in many shapes and sizes. Some of the most common ones involve anxiety, aggression, destructive behaviour, house soiling, nervousness, fear, reactivity and boisterous behaviour, to mention but a few. Whatever kind of behaviour is worrying you, please get in touch to book a consultation. 


Veterinary referral is required prior to a consultation, for which my fees may be covered by some pet insurers so please enquire with your pet insurance provider about this. Details of my credentials can be found on my About page. Please see below to find out about my dog behaviour consultation options.

'Being Kind To Dogs'

‘Being Kind To Dogs’ is a heart-warming book promoting force-free training and kindness to dogs in all aspects of life.


Encouraging dogs to listen to us begins with earning their trust and never using punishment or harsh methods. Wonderful things can be achieved when we learn how to communicate kindly and effectively.


By combining science, intuition and common sense, we can work with our dogs to resolve their behavioural issues and help them to understand how we would like them to behave in our human world.


‘Being Kind To Dogs’ provides insight into how using force-free methods is the most beneficial way to achieve long-term success and well-balanced, happy canine companion.
