Hi, my name is Jill.
I set up JW Canine Care in 2020 to offer specialist behavioural support for ex-racing greyhounds moving into retirement. Many new owners comment on how different they are to other dogs, so working with someone who understands the breed makes a lot of sense.
I have first-hand experience of many of the problems that can beset greyhounds when they move into a new home, having owned and fostered this breed since 2004. Taking on ‘hard to home’ dogs who need additional support to make the transition to home life is incredibly rewarding, and gives them an opportunity they might otherwise not have.
My training as a canine behaviourist is with the ISCP, which emphasises a force-free approach using positive reinforcement. Common issues for greyhounds, such as anxiety, reactivity or separation anxiety, are based around fear.
The techniques I use focus on building confidence to cope with the new situations they face. If you would like 1:1 support with your greyhound, I can work with you online or in person, so location is not an issue
