GoodPet is a private company specialising in the behavioural aspects and training of your domestic pets.
It is run by a Qualified Animal Behaviourist with links to:
• the Ethology* Academy (* ethology – the scientific study of animal behaviour)

GoodPet’s emphasis is on developing relationships between animals and their humans, who are taught to interact with their pets at all levels, from education to recreation. GoodPet adopts a holistic approach and the company works closely with recognised experts in the field who are committed to gaining and sharing scientific and practical knowledge. A particular interest is the link between human psychology and animal behaviour, and how a deeper understanding of both will help to promote positive human-animal interaction.

Examples of this are:
Clicker Training – a respectful, scientific and yet fun method of training any animal. It uses a positive approach by rewarding required behaviours.
