Scotty Valadao

Accredited 2006 - Canine

Scotty has been passionate about dogs for as long as she can remember. This passion has grown over the years and has culminated with Scotty working with dogs on a full-time professional basis since 2000 and obtaining qualifications in the following areas:-

  • Basic Home Obedience & Puppy Training
  • Modern Theories of Canine Psychology, Behaviour & Obedience (UK)
  • Ethology – Basic Animal Behaviour (Canine)
  • Tellington TTouch Practitioner
  • Veterinary Nutrition Advisor
  • Clicker Training
  • Louise L Hay Facilitator
Scotty believes that if one has the basic understanding of how and why something works, then one has the knowledge to take action in an educated manner. This applies to dogs as well, and if we can become aware as to how a dog thinks and acts and how to respond appropriately, this goes a long way to avoiding unnecessary dog bites, unnecessary behavioural problems and in general, makes the relationship with the canine world a much safer and harmonious one.

Scotty has been studying Tellington TTouch since 2003 and is a qualified Practitioner. She has found that when TTouch is used in behavioural modification and training, it reduces the dog's stress, increases self confidence and builds a stronger and more co-operative bond between dog and owner. This in turn appreciably enhances the success rate of behaviour modification therapy.
