About Speak Dog

My name is Betty.

I am the founder of Speak Dog - Positive Dog Training, and my connection with dogs is more than a profession; it's a profound bond with our cherished four-legged companions.

I completed the Delta Institute Certificate IV in Animal Behaviour and Training and the L.E.G.S.® Applied Ethology Family Dog Mediation® Professional Course with Kim Brophey. 

My greatest mentor has been my dog Betson — a source of joy, a silent confidant, and a reflection of the intricate emotions that make dogs unique. His nuanced communication has taught me to listen with both ears and eyes.

Understanding the "Why" behind our dogs' actions has led me to prioritise building relationships based on trust and connection, where 'obedience' takes a back seat to impart essential life skills.

Betson faced his challenges, navigating reactivity and separation distress, which heightened my sensitivity to the emotional landscapes of our beloved companions. It's not just about training; it's about offering a steady hand, a compassionate heart, and a deep understanding of their world. ​ I get it; dealing with your furry friend's challenges can be tough. But, you're not alone on this journey. Let's team up to overcome these hurdles and create a cozy space of trust, joy, and understanding. Through individually tailored dog training programs, I'm here to help ease the worries, guilt, frustration, and embarrassment that often come with sorting out our dogs' behaviour.

Our Happy Clients


Cannot speak highly enough about Betty at Speak Dog. We have watched innumerable dog training videos & attended other dog training sessions but have made the most progress after 3 private sessions with Betty. She has given us incredible insight into our 8 month pup's behaviour, and given our dog a voice to speak to us. I love how our dog just 'behaves' so well when she is lead by Betty & with more lessons & expert guidance by her, we look forward to a much calmer, more secure pup and our walks can be more enjoyable & not a struggle.


Betty was recommended to me by another one of her clients. She has been instrumental in helping my very anxious middle-aged rescue dog to chill out and enjoy life in a way he couldn’t previously. She has patiently and gently helped me to read my dog’s body language more accurately and respond constructively and appropriately. We are a work-in-progress but visiting family have been amazed at the progress we have made to date. Thank you Betty.


After seeking assistance from a few dog trainers, I found Betty from Speak Dog.I highly recommend Betty and her business, not just for dog training, but more importantly to understand dog behaviour. Betty has helped my 2 year old Border Collie to become less nervous, calmer and happier - which has made our family life much easier and peaceful.

Betty has worked closely with my dog and I, provided clear instructions, additional reading material, and videos of our training activities to help reinforce the techniques, particularly with crucial timing for rewarding behaviour in a positive way. Thank you so much Betty. I highly recommend Betty and Speak Dog, particularly for getting to the root cause of my dog’s behaviour and providing workable solutions.
