She is a highly skilled evidence-based positive reinforcement trainer and animal behaviour expert who is passionate about assisting people to create and build trusting relationships with their pets.
Not only does Brooke have extensive experience training animals, a 20-year career in social science means that Brooke can relate to humans as well as she can relate to their pets – which is the key to the success of her companion animal training business.
