My Purpose

Reaching millions of Australians each year through my TV show, other media and speaking activities, I am passionate about empowering and educating people to create behaviour change that helps improve the lives of both pets and people.

As a certified dog behaviourist & trainer and dedicated animal welfare advocate it is my mission to help reduce the number of dogs and cats ending up in pounds and shelters each year to zero. To help achieve this I have made it a focus of my education and training work and role as Ambassador for Second Chance Animal Rescue.

I hope you will be empowered and inspired to join me in this cause!
