Senior Dog Care Consultancy Service

Hello and welcome to my Senior Dog Care Consultancy Service.

Before we talk about the services I offer, why don’t I tell you a bit about myself!

About Me

This is always the hardest to write. How do I sum up the whole of my being in just a few paragraphs?

I’m Hindy Pearson – a dog trainer specializing in helping you help your shy, fearful or aggressive dog. I am also a senior dog care consultation, advocate for senior pet adoption with a passion for animal welfare.

As a long time shelter volunteer, I was shocked by the number of dogs being returned (I’m trying to be polite because I actually prefer the term “dumped”) for behavior problems. The dogs were always blamed, they weren’t given any training at the shelter, they were adopted again and often (not always) returned again for the same reason.

To me that was heart breaking to watch, never mind frustrating, knowing how many people were unaware of the importance of training…something that should always be explained at the adoption interview but isn’t usually.

Anyway, I started doing some basic training with the dogs to help improve their chances of a forever home. For 14 years I had a dog walking and pet sitting business, focusing on dealing with difficult dogs who needed individual walks. I did more than just walk them, I helped with their issues.

Becoming a certified dog trainer was the next logical step.

I run this website, Your Anxious Dog, which is filled with lots of helpful articles about training, health and wellness and a section for senior dogs. I offer one on one dog training and have introduced virtual training so I can help more people become amazing pup parents, no matter where in the world they live.

A also run a FB group called Senior Dog Care Club. I started it 5 years ago, when I realised a lot of senior dog parents had nowhere to turn for advice, a place to share or find a shoulder when they needed one.

Other Stuff

I am from Montreal but wanderlust took me to live in New York for 2 years, Israel for 5 years, and Toronto for 13. I met my English husband in a restaurant in Costa Rica and moved to England. We left England after a few years, moved to Florida, came back to England, did the snowbird thing for a while, and now we’re in England. Until I figure out where I want to go next!!! I suspect I will always want to spend a significant amount of time here, but I’m keen to divide my time – I get antsy just being in one place.

I prefer to live within easy access of a big city, but could never live in the centre of the hustle and bustle. After a few hours of the chaos I literally feel my blood pressure rising, so I know it’s time to retreat. I love the outdoors, and it’s the one place I feel truly at peace.

For the First Time Senior Dog Parent

Congratulations!! You’re wonderful to welcome a an old dog into your heart and home. There’s no greater feeling is there?

Some rescues are well behaved, have some (or a lot) of training and just need a refresher course and time to get used to the routine you’ve created. Others have been through a lot, and have the behavior issues that go along with coming from an abusive or traumatic background.

Whatever life your dog had before, his new one starts now.

Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss:

*Creating a routine

*Preparing your home for the new arrival

*What to expect during the first few days/weeks/months

*Developing trust

*Common behaviors you may see, and how to deal with them

*Training – we will tailor it depending on what your dog does and does not already know (housetraining – walking nicely on a leash – sit – come – stay – look at me – biting/nipping – aggressive/reactive behavior)
