About Us

Hi, I'm Charlotte and I have been where you are today!

Despite being a confident lifelong dog owner of fairly challenging dogs, our life flipped on its head when my partner and I adopted 50kg Freya. She would bark, lunge and growl at the end of her lead, and dreams of enjoying long walks in the country or a sunny afternoon in a beer garden did not happen!

We followed so-called 'expert' advice, but nothing seemed to help. We felt nothing but guilt, because we thought we were failing her. My partner and I would argue with each other about the best way to handle her on walks. We considered if rehoming her was the right thing to do, and questioned if she would ever lead a fulfilling life... This just brought us more guilt!

​​But, being a determined woman, I took matters into my own hands and went on an extremely intensive journey... I invested in education in kind methods of behaviour modification that actually work, gained hands-on experience, and changed our lives forever. I started Canny Canines to help other owners with nowhere else to turn. I've since helped hundreds of dog owners to help turn their issues with their dogs around and live calmer and happier together.

I look forward to helping you on your own journey!
