Whether your dog has separation anxiety, aggression, reactivity or barking issues I am here to help you.
Helping dogs and owners across the Uk with their dogs behavioural needs
Here's a bit about me and why Zoe Willingham Dog Behaviourist exists.
I also am founder/ owner of the multi award winning Best Behaviour Dog Training and Dogversity online dog training and have been working with animals all my life and training dogs for over 10 years. I made a huge decision to train as a trainer and then as a behaviourist all those years ago because I was shocked at the horrifying standards in behaviour and training in the region and wanted to make a difference to dogs and their owners.
There is such a huge mis-understanding about what a behaviourist does vs a dog trainer and this has got worse since the lockdowns. Lockdowns led to a number of trainers and behaviourists doing online courses or courses that self certify and calling themselves trainers and behaviourists. I have been inundated with clients who have been to these individuals and received damaging and life threatening advice which has driven me to have three businesses to help dog owners better navigate and get what they really need from qualified and properly accredited organisations.
Best Behaviour Dog Training and Dogversity online training is all about training to prevent problem behaviours of the future. Zoe Willingham Dog Behaviourist is all about helping cure and alleviate behaviour problems if they occur.
A bit about me
I am a qualified behaviourist with two degrees and level 3,4,5 & 6 accreditation. I have been independently assessed on my academic and practical skills and as a dog teaching professional I also complete over 60 hours CPD a year to remain up to date with my learning and remain accredited.
When I am not helping you with your dogs I love spending my time with my own 20 dogs and rescue cats and parrots. I live, sleep, breathe animals and my dogs are my best teachers. My own rescue dogs and rehab cases have included reactivity, separation anxiety, human aggression, resource guarding, and noise sensitivity rehabilitation so I absolutely know how it feels to be where you are.
I love being out and about with my dogs, exploring new places and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the Suffolk countryside.
