My name is Zoe Willingham and I am a qualified, independently accredited dog trainer & behaviourist.
I am owner/founder of Best Behaviour Dog Training which is an independently run dog training school and behaviour practice. Best Behaviour Dog Training was born out of a genuine concern for dogs and owners after seeing and experiencing first hand, a number of outdated and potentially damaging training techniques that were, and are still being used to train dogs.
I felt so passionately about bringing kind science based training to dogs and their owners I decided to retrain as a trainer and then as a behaviourist. I trained for many years whilst holding down a full time job, and when the time was right took a leap of faith to do the one thing I had passionately trained for, for so many years.
The training school and behaviour practice has gone from strength to strength, thanks to the support and recommendations from dog owners as well as animal welfare chairites such as the Blue Cross, vets and other animal related organisations. I have built a reputation of delivering top quality dog training and behaviour support, with many dog owners chosing to train with us for many years enjoying the varied, fun training classes and workshops we offer.
My business partners
As well as my wonderful behaviour and training team and assistant dog trainers, I have 17 business partners. These guys are the reason I do what I do. Every single one of them has taught me things books and study can’t, and each of them hold a special place in my heart. They are all rescues. So, when you phone me and say, ‘my dog's doing this’ I have probably been exactly where you are with my own dog and know how you are feeling. For more information on my business partners see below

Over time they have all developed their own little roles in the Best Behaviour / Dogversity family.
