Breed Consulting

Are you thinking about getting a dog? If you are, I am here to help you from the very moment you begin considering the idea.
I offer sound, factual answers to the following questions:

  • Will a dog fit in with my current lifestyle?

  • What breed of dog will best suit my household?

  • Should I get a new puppy from a breeder or rescue/rehome?

  • How much time and money will I need to invest?

  • What if I move to a new house/ have a baby/ develop a allergy?

  • Is my home environment suitable? Will I need to change anything?

  • What equipment/ food should I buy? What are the costs?

  • Do I need pet insurance? What is the best policy for me?

Choosing to share your life with a dog is one of the most amazingly rewarding things you can do, but it is NOT for everyone. If you are seriously considering making this (up to) 15 year commitment, then please contact me.


If you have already found the dog or puppy you are considering, I offer a full assessment to help you decide if it is really the dog for you. I can travel to breeders’ homes to assist with picking a puppy, or to where the dog is currently residing. I am also able to offer a bespoke handling and socialisation programme for the breeder to begin implemented before your pup has left the litter.


Sessions are charged at the basic training rate of £70.00 per hour.

A travel cost of £0.45 per mile will also be charged.
