Dog Behaviourist Helen Goodall

Dog Behaviourist Helen Goodall - in Bury St.Edmunds, Suffolk.

Building and understanding the relationship with your dog is an essential, ongoing part of ownership. Problematic behaviour can threaten that relationship to the point where owners feel the only alternative is to re-home their dog. ​Helen helps you the owner gain a better understanding of why your dog behaves in certain ways.
Whilst working together towards better dog behaviour, your own confidence can improve, helping establishing greater trust and an improved response. Helen is committed to help you and your dog whatever problems arise, for the lifetime of your dog.​​

“Helen has been helping us with our rescue terrier Ziggy who has some social problems and can be unpredictable with other dogs, particularly un-neutered males. Most importantly she has inspired much greater confidence in my handling and he was the most relaxed in the presence of other dogs during our last session. I researched several possible behaviourists and am so pleased to have found someone who understands Ziggy. Helen is recommended without reservation.”

- Neil Williamson

“We had major problems with Ghost, but Helen has given us back our joy in walking a dog. She has never made us feel like we are bad dog owners and to be honest if it was'nt for Helen then Ghost would probably be back at the rescue we got him from. We are all so grateful for her help and advice. ”
