Do you have an anxious or nervous dog?
Are dog walks no longer enjoyable?
Is your puppy playing havoc with family life?

Hello, I’m Becky Elliott and I’m a dog behaviour and training specialist based in Sidmouth, Devon.

I provide 1-2-1 dog behaviour and training support which is tailored to you, your dog and your family circumstances.  I only use positive and force-free training methods and am professionally qualified with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.

If you want a long-term solution to an issue that is preventing you from having a calm and happy relationship with your dog, then I am here to help you. No judgement, no jargon..just understanding and practical advice.

Behaviour Support
When a dog has behavioural problems such as anxiety or reactivity, it can cause a huge pressure on day-to-day life and take the enjoyment out of life with your dog.

My 1-2-1 behavioural support is tailored to what has triggered the behaviour in your dog and uses positive and rewarding methods to help rehabilitate them in the long-term and restore calm in your relationship.

Dynamic Dog Assessment
