Learn how to recognise and manage behaviours in your dog and respond appropriately.

People training for dogs.

Better recognise and appropriately respond to your dog’s behaviours with the help of a qualified and experienced dog psychologist. Understand the route of a behaviour and responding appropriately in order to encourage or dissuade it.

Every dog and every human is different, as is the relationship between you. I work to find the techniques and methods that best suits you and your dog.

What’s important to you

Whether or not you want the most obedient dog in the world, a show dog, or a dog who will cuddle up with you on the sofa, it all begins with a positive relationship. I can show you the steps to get you started in the right direction.

About Me

Hi there!

I’m Steph Missons and I am a canine psychologist.

I qualified back in 2008 after suffering a large motorcycle accident which, among other things, broke both my arms and forced me to rethink my path in life.

Dogs gave me back my passion. They helped me to see that I didn’t have to be physically strong to lead. They showed me how to develop my techniques and base them on a positive relationship.

It is possible that you have already sought out advice from friends or tried methods that you may have seen other people use with their dogs and you may still be struggling.

Why is this?

Because you have your dog and they have theirs. Every dog is different so you essentially are trying to navigate Paris, using a map of London.

I have had experience working with many different people and their dogs. Whether your dog is a new addition to your home, or a long standing member of the family. Sometimes we all need a little help.

I love the work that I do and seeing the joy in people when they realise what can be achieved.

We are all unique and so are our dogs.


We have had a great course socializing and training our St Bernards. Steph has really good knowledge (and patience !) that has helped us feel more confident in letting the bears mix with other – particularly smaller-dogs

Wow, where do we start, Stephanie has such a varied knowledge in her field, she was able to personalise our consultation to our specific dogs. She was very detailed and it was really eye opening to hear about the psychology of dogs and understanding their traits. We cannot wait to use all of the techniques we discussed to put in place a better discipline for our dogs. We would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone who has a dog that they want to understand better!

Such excellent advice and the real personal touch. I know it isn’t easy online but it felt like we were in the room together. A great mixture of good quality advice, thoughtful information, and laughs about dogs! We will be coming back for more.”
