Behaviour Support for small dogs with big feelings
Does your small dog have big feelings?
Does your dog growl, bark or hide from people or dogs?
Do you avoid people and other dogs because the situation is too stressful or embarrassing?
Does your dog seem worried, anxious or overwhelmed?
Are you concerned that your dog isn’t happy or enjoying life?
Maybe you are feeling guilty because your friends and family have said it’s your fault due to you spoiling them?
Or maybe your dog has been accused of having ‘small dog syndrome?’
These are just a few signs that your dog is feeling stressed or anxious and needs some support to
improve their life…… and yours!
The great news is, I can help you!
I have shared my entire life living and working with small dogs so understand how to help them but also the struggles, frustrations and judgements you are likely experiencing.
The truth is, if your dog displays challenging behaviour, they are trying to communicate something, my job is to help you understand what’s going on so that you can get on with enjoying a beautiful life together.
For some small dogs certain situations are really overwhelming and that can lead to behavioural challenges, these are sometimes subtle and sometimes they are like an explosion.
But contrary to what you may have been told, this difficult behaviour is not because they sit on your sofa, sleep in your bed, or you love them too much!
And the good news is the problems you are experiencing CAN be improved and often completely modified by using a holistic, kind and science-based approach. No shouting, smacking or punishments required!
Although I love all dogs I specialise in small dogs, from teeny tiny Chihuahua’s to cocker spaniels! I share my life with 3 miniature Schnauzers and a toy poodle, I understand the struggles and judgements you face but more importantly I know how to help you and your dog.

“I have no hesitation recommending Behaviour Support By Kim. Winston has come on leaps and bounds since being helped by the team there.
The advice and guidance from Kim has helped us help Winston overcome issues, mainly his annoyance about men coming into the house!
Slowly but surely we’re getting there and it’s all being done in a gentle way that my boy understands.
“Bailey had many challenges when I first met Kim. She was our second trainer. Pulling on lead, over arousal, unable to greet dogs politely, unable to be off lead, frustration to name but a few.
Kim’s approach to training made me look at the bigger picture, getting the balance right, meeting Bailey’s needs and reading his body language along with other hands on training elements. Kim understood Bailey where other trainers didn’t.
Kim’s training, guidance and support has been invaluable and it has enabled me to live my life the way I wanted to with my dog.
I can now walk nicely down a street, enjoy off lead freedom on the beach, chill out in a cafe or pub with Bailey at my feet and much, much more.
Thank you Kim.”
