In one of my dogs, Wendy has met the challenge of a deep-seated problem with great depth of knowledge and patience and has shown me the coping mechanisms for his behaviour.

Wendy has a most professional and compassionate attitude to the animals and their owners and this owner is truly grateful.

Christine, York

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Wendy - she provided good solid advice regarding our dog's behavioural issues and was adaptable to our needs and very easy to work with

Many thanks,

Just to let you know Christmas was a success with Millie and I, she just had one mishap when Chris went down to his parents. She's now done two full weeks of going into the litter tray I'm so proud to call her my cat. Now I have control of my emotions with her, we play with her everyday it's like she's a changed cat all of a sudden. Thanks for the tips she's loving to both of us now and a pleasure to have...
