My name is Daniella Cranfield. I have always been around animals. My whole family is animal lovers, my parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins all have animals! I am not a trainer or vet professional; however, I had a dog walking and pet-sitting business before Covid-19 meant I had to give it up and slow down. Having a Siberian Husky from a pup was an eye-opener for me. Luckily we had a fantastic positive reinforcement trainer who helped me and my family train our Husky. Working with her was amazing; she encouraged me to attend a course to learn about dog behavior and dog body language, which was invaluable. I could transfer much of what I learned to the different breeds I worked with. I created this website to share some of the things I have learned.
