Whether you and your dog are struggling with major issues such as dog to human, or dog to dog aggression, separation anxiety or perhaps a more training related issue such as jumping up, excessive barking or pulling on the lead, I am fully qualified and experienced to help and advise you through this.

Improving the quality of life for you, your family and your dog is probably one of your main desired outcomes of any behavior modification or training plan. I can help you achieve this.

I am a fully qualified CAPBT Companion Animal Practitioner (Level 4 and 5 Diplomas in both Principles and Practical Aspects of Companion Animal Behaviour and Training). I am also a full member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and continue to maintain a rigorous programme of continued professional development for myself to ensure that I am up to date with all relevent methods and latest research.

I work with owners and their dogs on issues ranging from basic obedience to severe aggression, but specialise particularly in behaviour problems and human-dog relationships.

I have also worked with various rescue organisations such as Wood Green Animal Shelters, PACT and the RSPCA. I also train animal professionals such as vets, vet nurses and rescue organisations in canine behavioural topics, contributing to their continual professional development (CPD). I was also formally a consultant to the Centre for Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE) for five years, and am now a tutor for IMDT, presenting seminars and writing correspondence courses nationally on dog behaviour.

Lisa Hughston – South of the Border

lisa-hughston

Lisa Hughston started her business, ‘South of the Border’, about 9 years ago. She came from a very creative family and had always done art and loved making things as a child but had never thought about putting her creativity into a business. It actually happened by accident.

Lisa had to give up the dental nurse training she was doing at the time due to being diagnosed with Type 3 Elhers Danlos syndrome. It’s a difficult condition but as Lisa says: “As sad as it sounds, it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me!” It was whilst she was housebound that Lisa started to do her art again to pass the time and take her mind off her pain. “It became a kind of therapy for me” says Lisa “and I loved doing it.”

Lisa decided once she was well enough to go back to college to do A level art. She then went on to Wensum Lodge in Norwich to do an advanced art course and one day had the opportunity to try silversmithing – and she loved it!!

After dropping out of the art class and signing up to the silversmithing class Lisa gained her NCFE levels 1 and 2. Her wish to continue making silver jewellery was unfortunately hindered as her condition took a turn for the worse. Her passion for making jewellery however was still very strong so after a lot of research she started making resin jewellery: now she absolutely loves working with resin. As Lisa says: “You can do so much with it and after a lot of practice I knew this is what I wanted to work with the most”.

Lisa’s work is quirky and unique and she loves to upcycle things. She is a self-confessed magpie, collecting lots of different things that would normally be discarded and turn them into something new. Her inspirations come from 1950’s America and Mexican traditions and culture, tattoos, music as well as curiosities and all things weird and wonderful! Lisa says: “I love to make items to encapsulate in resin, from old stamps, broken vintage jewellery and I even had a commission to put a mummified baby rat in resin to make into a pendant!!”
