About Charlotte

I'm a Dog Wellbeing Consultant with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Animal Behaviour from the University of Lincoln and over seven years experience handling dogs, supporting their behaviour and training needs. I specialise in growing harmonious relationships between dogs and their caregivers while prioritizing their physical and emotional welfare.

I assess the needs of my clients and their dogs and form treatment plans grounded in ethical, science-based behaviour management and training strategies. I collaborate with veterinarians and coach clients individually to achieve their goals for a happy and healthy relationship with their dogs. I also work with local businesses, offering guidance on dog welfare, behaviour, and training.

I am currently taking on new clients in Derby (Midlands) and surrounding areas, offering 1:1 in person dog training and behaviour support.

Friendly faces I've worked with

  • Izzy, didn’t want to have to give up her toys.
    “I know my mum loves me because she buys me loads of toys. But when she tried to take them off me to tidy up I’d often snap at her. Charlotte taught mum a game we could play where mum asks me to drop my toy and then we play some more. Now I like giving mum my toys because I know she’s not trying to steal them.”

  • Alan, couldn’t cope with boredom
    “When we used to go out together as a family, I’d get bored if everyone sat down. I tried to entertain myself by chewing things, nipping at mum and dad to get their attention and singing. Charlotte showed my mum how to encourage me to settle and now I can relax myself if mum and dad are busy.”

  • Harvey, liked to get to places fast!
    “I love it when my mum takes me on walks but she doesn’t walk as fast as I like to. I tried to get her to walk faster by pulling but didn’t realise it sometimes hurt her. Charlotte showed us how to make walks enjoyable for both of us. Now I like walking at mum’s speed and I think mum had a great time learning too!”
