Qualifications and Experience:

1st Class Honours Degree in Animal Behaviour Science

Advanced Level Kennel Club Accredited Instructor *RR 

Behaviourist and Training Advisor at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home


Helen graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2008 with a 1st class honours degree in animal behaviour science. She trained her own dog in heelwork to music, agility and good citizens awards as well as helping with his training to become a Pets as Therapy Dog. 


Helen has worked across the world in a variety of rescue environments and veterinary clinics. She has worked with dogs, cats and horses in the UK, at the Donkey Sanctuary in Cyprus and with dogs and Moon Bears in China. Helen has always returned to dogs which are her passion and has been working at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London for 5 years, currently training and advising staff, volunteers, owners and external companies on dog behaviour and training, alongside working on the more difficult dogs arriving at the home. She deals with hundreds of dogs with thousands of different behaviours every week of all shapes and sizes, in peoples homes or the rescue environment.  

Helen has fostered over 30 dogs and puppies in her own home and from this knows that one plan does not fit every dog. Focusing on each character as the individual they are, Helen has adapted many different methods when dealing with training or behaviour requirements. 


Helen regularly attends the latest seminars and courses to ensure she is up to date with not only the most modern but most successful methods in dog training. She understands that every home and every dog are different and therefore will work with you and your family to get the most successful outcome from your training sessions.
