Lead & Listen was set up by Collette May in 2012, when looking for a new career that would fulfill her passion of working with dogs and fit around family commitments. In the last few years the business has grown and developed. Collette completed extensive theoretical and practical training in order to fulfill this dream. She is passionate about dogs and takes pride in her work by ensuring that their emotional and physical needs as well as individual training requirements are all met. She finds it rewarding to help owners train their dogs, to improve their relationship and reduce problems at home and on walks.
Collette has a particular interest in how we can communicate more effectively with our dogs by reading their body language and also by being more aware of our own. People often think their dogs can read their minds, but they are simply watching their every move which helps them to predict what is coming next. Understanding our canine friends is the secret to increased cooperation and general obedience.
