Who is Grace?

Hi there. I’m Grace. I am a very hard working, compassionate and strong willed woman who loves a challenge and never backs down from a hard days work, which is a good mix for working with dogs that are having trouble getting along in the world with us humans! The greatest reward I get in life is when someone tells me I saved the life of their dog so they didn’t have to give it up! I love nothing more then showing people how to be a leader in their own world and all aspects of life! I am a leader, and walk my own path in life and I’ll go where ever it takes me!

Grace’s Rants & Recommendations

I am passionate about making life better for every dog I encounter. I am forever gathering information for my own use in the day-to-day running of a house full of dogs, so I blog a lot of what I find. I also blog when I need to rant about something that needs to be ranted about. I hope you enjoy my blog. If what you are looking for isn’t on the blog, please contact me at and I will see what I can do.

How do I choose a dog trainer?

First ask yourself what you want your dog to learn? Is your dog an extreme case? If your dog is an extreme case then sit, stay, come or heel is not the first things you need to learn. Some trainers don't do rehabilitation, some don't do behavioural modification and...
