Kirsten is a lifesaver. I came to Kirsten at the end of my rope, after about 18 difficult months with my beautiful, but challenging dog Finn (and I had tried EVERYTHING). Finn was diagnosed with PICA at a young age, with MULTIPLE (around 8) trips to the vet because of something he had swallowed (mainly socks) , as well as intensive abdominal surgery (at 12 weeks). He had a scary start to life. He became a very anxious pup and would spook very easily. He had challenges on his lead, lots of barking and his attention span was next to nothing. Kirsten’s approach was completely different to anything I had ever seen and it was so refreshing and enlightening. There were two biggest lesson’s I learnt with Kirsten. One was not to try and change Finn, but learn to change the environment around him, and two was to constantly advocate for Finn. Since Kirsten came into our lives, I feel completely at ease with Finn and I know exactly how to manage situations that arise through Kirsten’s incredible knowledge, resources and training sessions. I’ve never met anyone as dedicated and knowledgable in their field of work. Finn is doing great now! We understand what to do if he is barking/anxious, his lead work is coming along nicely and his recall is almost perfect (he even recognises a particular whistle that he will run to). His PICA is now under control because his attention span is better, so he can stop long enough to identify the object instead of just inhaling it then and there. If you are having trouble with your dog or think maybe they aren’t the right fit/thinking of rehoming, I HIGHLY recommend sessions with Kirsten!! I can almost guarantee she will change your way of thinking about your dog within one session. Thank you Kirsten!
