Highest Qualified. Canine. Advice
"Since establishment in 2001, I am so proud of the great reputation Perfect Pawz! has forged, the 1700+ dogs I have had pleasure in assisting & the many recommendations received. Your success is ours & I am proud of each & every one"
I'm Anna Bradley & in 2001, I created Perfect Pawz! At that time, animal behaviour was in its infancy and I wanted to encourage owners to stop, think why their animals were behaving as they were and to listen to them before quickly resorting to punishment.
This 'through the dog's eyes' has become a centrepoint of Perfect Pawz! thinking and nothing gives me greater pleasure than to see both dog and owner succeed and create a happy relationship between each, especially when that owner comes to me with little hope of ever reaching a solution, or where the dog may have experienced harm or abuse.
As the field of animal behaviour has grown in popularity over the years, I have sought to combine the highest possible academic qualifications in my chosen field with a wealth of practical experience, so that I can offer the very best service to all of my clients.
I hope to see you soon.

Did You Know?
At the moment, anybody can call themsleves a 'Trainer/Behaviourist/Whisperer etc. This is because presently the world of dog training and behaviour is totally unregulated. Sadly there are a huge amount of people put there using these terms without any credentials whatsoever or purporting to have qualifications from online courses etc. At Perfect Pawz! we think this is wrong - would you go to an un-qualified dr or dentist? Fortunately there is now a move to stop this so that only those individuals with the best credentials and highest qualifications offer their services to pet owners. We fully support this move read more
