About Me

My name is Alison and I am passionate about animals, learning about animals and helping to improve their lives. The animals that I have shared my life with have provided me with fun, love but also many learning opportunities. My current dogs have ensured I learn through positive, evidence based educational bodies and those that see dogs as individuals; which resonates with my love and respect of animals, their individuality, and my love of learning and psychology. They have been the reason that I have spent the last 10 years completing several diplomas, attending courses, seminars and events about canines, their behaviour, pain and therapies that can help them; amongst so many other things. 

I am a qualified Canine Behaviour Practitioner, qualified Galen Myotherapist and hold several diplomas in Canine Nutrition.  

I am proud to be, not only a Galen Myotherapist, but also an affiliate of Without Worry Canine Education.

Please keep scrolling this page if you wish to find out my qualifications and further learning.

I am fully insured  and adhere to the Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 1962.

I am working towards being as green as possible, using ethical and environmentally friendly companies; wherever possible.  This includes my web host, Ionos.

Without Worry Canine Education

Position Statement

Without Worry Canine Education promote interactions with animals based on compassion, respect, kindness, and reward-based training. Aversive methods rely on punishment and negative reinforcement and many studies demonstrate that aversive methods can cause stress in dogs. We fully support the new law that will come into force 1 February 2024 banning the use of shock collars. It is often claimed that electric shock collars are effective in preventing dogs from chasing livestock. However, research demonstrates that use of an electronic collar does not create a greater deterrent, nor does it result in better learning outcomes.​

We disagree with the philosophy some organisations support, framed as Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive (LIMA) hierarchies of method selection. We reject the LIMA strategy which still allows behaviour practitioners and trainers to employ aversive methods when less aversive or intrusive methods have not worked. Without Worry Canine Education believe there is no role for aversive training in behaviour modification, training, or any interactions with animals. There are no exceptions to this standard, even for dogs with aggressive behaviours.

There is no place for the use of punishment or aversives in interactions with animals.
