Pear Tree Pets was established in 2014 and is based in the New Forest area of Hampshire. I provide one-to-one consultations and training for puppies and dogs.
Originally a dog walking and home boarding business, I saw so many dogs struggling with different things and I wanted to learn more about how to help them. I attended my first course with the IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) in 2015 and was hooked and since then have completed many more courses, becoming a fully qualified IMDT trainer in 2019 and passing the Level 4 OCN qualification in Behaviour Consultations and Functions of Behaviour in the same year. I am currently studying towards the Level 5 qualification in Understanding and Working with Canine Behaviour.
I love working with dogs and their humans and helping them grow in confidence and resilience. I view training and behaviour problems as symptom not a diagnosis and so I also believe in a holistic approach. I take time getting to know the whole dog, their health, routines, finding out what motivates them, their learning history, so that the root cause is addressed, not just the symptoms.
