Edinburgh’s #1Holistic Dog Behaviourist
Specialising in rescue dogs from abroad and reactive dog training
Is life with your dog a far cry from what you imagined? Maybe you see other dogs strutting around town and wonder why on earth your dog is just soooo different.
Living in dog friendly Edinburgh, you probably had visions of strolling around the markets, hitting up a local cafe and enjoying long weekend walks – all with your dog by your side.
But instead of living the doggy dream, you might be
Struggling with a dog who overreacts?
Feeling helpless watching your dog who’s scared of everything?
Worried about whether you can help your dog overcome their fears?
No two dogs are the same. And whilst you might find yourself struggling with your rescue dog or outbursts of uncontrollable reactivity – you are not alone.
Overcome fear and welcome in confidence
I’ve helped many rescue dogs, reactive dogs, and their humans to soar in confidence.
And I’d love to help you and your dog to achieve the feeling of relief and peace that comes with getting the behaviour problems you’re facing under control.
Even if right now that feels like a bit of an impossible dream.

Meet your trainer
I’m Suzanne, and this is Flash. Flash was the dog who started it all. I adopted him at aged one and my god was he stubborn! He was 35kgs stubborn.
And so we began our training journey, and I haven’t stopped learning since. Flash went from whirling around on the end of his lead and dragging me everywhere to becoming a fully fledged therapy dog – visiting care homes and bringing joy to many.
I know exactly what it’s like to share your life with a dog who won’t listen, who freaks out, and who delivers you challenges you never dreamed you’d face. And luckily, I now know exactly how to turn it around.
"She understood us"
My Romanian rescue dog, Dexter, had a lot of anxiety and I was feeling overwhelmed. Suzanne was absolutely brilliant – not only did she understand where I was coming from, she, more importantly, understood where Dexter was coming from.
Suzanne has helped him build his confidence and he is now up for lots of adventures (when he first arrived, he would barely leave the house), has friends everywhere, and loves humans and dogs alike.
Suzanne has given us the tools to continue helping him be the awesome Dexter that he truly is.

Joining the dots between dog behaviour and pain
Did you know that around 80% of dogs with behaviour problems have some form of undiagnosed pain?
Yet more often than not a vet visit doesn’t get to the root of what’s going on. In a very short veterinary consultation with a tense and stressed out pooch, it can be very hard for your vet to get an accurate reading of your dog’s physical health.
As Scotland’s first accredited Dynamic Dog Practitioner, I can assess your dog’s gaits and posture in a relaxed environment and gather the data your vet needs to find out what’s really going on.
behaviour changes ie reactivity
reluctant to go for walks or play
depressed or irritable
altering how they walk, trot or run
licking or chewing joints
moving away from being touched or groomed
