Andy Hale is a certified behaviourist who takes a philosophical approach and focuses on the dogs' emotional experience. He suggests that rather than looking at how we can affect dogs' behaviour, we consider why we want to affect it. Andy and Julie discuss how we can allow our dogs to be happy.
Andrew Hale has a degree in psychology and previously worked in human therapy. For the last 10 years Andrew has been working with animals, primarily dogs, as a Certified Animal Behaviourist. In both careers Andrew has had a passion for exploring and unpacking the emotional experience and what it means for delivering a human or animal centred care approach.
Andrew has played a leading role in the UK Dog training and behaviour community, having been the chair of the Association of INTODogs and the driving force behind the UK Dog Behaviour and Training Charter. He is the behavioural consultant for Pet Remedy and the British Isle Grooming Association. Andrew runs Dog Centred Care – Facebook Group and YouTube channel.
