I was recommended Rosie by our vet, initially I emailed her ( in desperation!) details of my puppy's toileting issues which was followed by a phone consultation( as we live on different islands!) we literally had success from that night on!! A few months later, as more behaviour issues became apparent,Rosie visited us. Rosie is very nice, approachable and personable. She talks sense! Her approach is kind, calm and fun for the dogs, not on 'quick fixes', but treating the dog as a whole, for long term success.She was able to talk us through, and show us, the visible signs of stress that our puppy was showing from the moment we put on her harness to practical guidelines and tips on how to make walking with her more pleasurable for her and us! Rosie gave us some great advice and 'games' to reinforce commands to help us with all problem areas from inappropriate chewing to barking at other dogs when out. This was all followed by a professional, full in depth report, with all of the recommendations and a copy sent to the vet.
We are a work in progress! but, at least now we feel more confident, the dogs have fun and we all enjoy walks again! I would highly recommend Rosie 🐾

As a professional dog walker, walking many characteristically different dogs, getting the correct advice and information is essential to performing my job safely. Rosie has aided me with some of the dogs I walk, which include ones that have been for a consultation with her previously and she has always been extremely helpful. She has been instrumental in some of the dogs lives, whilst also aiding owners to gain valuable knowledge and confidence. Rosie is a friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable behaviorist with a wonderful positive approach, which seeing first hand really works!
My dogs and I highly recommend Rosie and my family will be forever grateful for her help with various matters over the years. Through involvement with voluntary and rescue work, I have also seen the lives of many other dogs improve thanks to Rosie’s invaluable knowledge and her modern approach to the problems she is presented with. Rosie is not afraid to work with difficult and somewhat emotional cases whilst never compromising on the welfare of the dog in her work.
Whilst quick fixes are not possible with some of the cases I have seen Rosie become involved with, it is clear that her knowledge places her in a great position to educate and help others so that they can help their dog as efficiently as possible. Rosie is highly recommended for cases where the owner wants a solution that works as well for the dog as it does for them. I have no hesitation in recommending Rosie.

I live in Guernsey and have a Tibetan Terrier, who I was having terrible trouble trying to get to behave age 4. Not all the time mainly when we were out barking badly at other dogs, plus other problems!
I took her to the vet and he recommended that I contacted Rosie. She came to Guernsey and spent 4 hours with us. All I can say is Rosie is fantastic! She can’t cure everything at once but gives you so much advice, which is followed up by you.
I have had dogs since 1975 but never one like this one! A lot of her advice is so simple, just things you may not think of! She is always at the end of the phone if you need her.
I can’t say I have the best behaved dog in the world but she is 90% better! A big 5 * to Rosie!
The methods I use are scientifically based and evidenced which means they are proven to work. You will come across an abundance of behavioral advice via the Internet, magazines, books, the TV, and all those nice people you might meet whilst walking your dog. However, this advice is often confusing and might not suit your pet’s needs and may even be a cause for welfare concern. Some methods work really well in the long term and are kind and some seem to work in the short term but are not so kind.
I love animals so I use the kind approach. I also like people so I am kind to you as well.
