Jo Whitehead PhD, MSc, BSc (Hons)

Species Seen:

I am a Registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CAB / ABTC) and a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC).  I have worked with and studied cats, dogs and other animals for many years.  I began (but did not complete) training as a veterinary nurse with the PDSA, then went on to gain my PhD in Biology (Animal Behaviour and Physiology) from York University in 2002, and have since done further study in 2016 with Newcastle University on their MSc in Applied Animal Behaviour and Welfare. I have been actively involved in animal behaviour and welfare research for over 17 years and have been running a successful behaviour consultancy service since 2014.  I am a keen advocate of positive training methods and believe strongly that flexibility, adaptability and understanding are key to helping people achieve a happy and positive relationship with their pets. I live in North Yorkshire with my husband, daughter and currently two rather lovely ponies, Buster and Dan.
