Over the years I have accumulated lots of skills and knowledge on many areas of pet care and wellbeing, and I am keen to pass of this information to pet parents interested in learning how they might help their own animals.
To facilitate this I have created a range of content that aims to educate and inform.
|Blog: A to Z of dog wellbeing
A free series of blogs, updated fortnightly throughout 2019 covering topics from anxiety, through exercise, grief and stress to zucchini (and other vegetables!), and how they can help your pet to be their best. Read the wellbeing blog

Here is a review from Christine Meaney, Canine Behaviourist after a workshop at the Dog AID AGM held in August 2018:
The demonstrations by Lesley were very enjoyable. It was a great way of introducing and showcasing, in quick layman’s terms, how using a holistic approach to canine care can benefit the dogs.
It was great to see Lesley work with each dog. The dogs chose what they needed and Lesley explained what the dogs were choosing and suggested reasons why they chose the herbs they did.
It was a lovely, informative demonstration given in a clear, concise manner by a passionate, professional, lovely person who clearly loves what she does, and she does it so well I would highly recommend using Lesley for workshops.
