Magic

In 2007 a little dog came into my life, Alfie, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, by 2009 his ‘magic’ became clear. He could sniff out exactly where my mum’s muscular dystrophy was active. She would call it ‘buzzing’ and he would locate and lick the area. It blew our minds just how incredible this little dog was.

Since Alfie, all my dogs have shown incredible intuition towards health-related issues whether physical or mental. This is why the company was called ‘Believe in Magic’ as all dogs have something magical about them. 

I now know, thanks to science, that it is scent which drives these incredible beings, they can smell when we are happy, sad, sick, healthy, which is why I love incorporating aspects to improve and support emotional, cognitive and physical health in all our services we provide for dogs and their human guardians. 

    Science

    I adore science, data and patterns. This is how we can measure progress, find evidence and understand the physiological and psychological makeup of our animals, It is all connected. 

    We should always be looking at this Venn Diagram when working or living with animals. All out Behavioural or Training work encompasses each of these aspects.

      Hi I’m Eryn

      I established Believe In Magic Dog Training & Behaviour in South East London in 2011, when I moved here from North London. I have been an Animal Trainer and Behaviourist since 2007. Before specialising in Dogs and Cats I was a Horse Trainer. My love for animals is deep routed, I love learning how to effectively transfer my skills to pet guardians so they can implement the training themselves. There is nothing better than seeing clients of mine helping others understand their own dogs better. Educating each other on body language and understanding why behaviours are repeated. Good or bad.

      Hi I’m Merry

      I joined Believe In Magic Dog Training & Behaviour in 2016, when I moved here from Devon. I have been a Dog Trainer since 2016 and Behaviourist since 2017. I love keeping up to date on current research, training developments and looking at how we can use this new information within our consultations and classes. I share my home with my 2 rescue dogs Rudolph (Staffie x EBT) and Margot (CKCS), and a menagerie of other animals from my amazing tortoise to my African Pygmy Hedgehog. To say I am an Animal Lover may be a slight understatement.
