HANNAH MCMILLAN

ISCP.Dip.Canine.Prac
Qualified Dog Trainer and Dog Behaviourist

WHY CHOOSE US?

Hello there, I'm Hannah McMillan, the face of Fox N Fables Dog Training & Behaviour. Being a guardian myself, I am lucky enough to have three dogs called IO, Bigby and Fsmo. I am a dog trainer and behaviourist in Tidworth, Wiltshire and spend my days with my dogs, who are my absolute world. Being a massive lover of all animals, I've previously enjoyed such careers with the UK's largest horse/donkey sanctuary, dog kennels and I have even worked as a horse riding instructor. Although I grew up around family dogs, I didn't get my own until 2013 where I got IO at 7 weeks of age. That was the real turning point and I really got interested in all things canine! I regularly attend courses and seminars with some of the world's most top dog trainers and behaviourists so I can continue to build up my skills and knowledge - I only want to give the best quality to my clients.

Relating to guardians of dogs that are reactive is because I own one myself. I entirely understand how frustrating, embarrassing, upsetting it can be but I also understand just how your dog might be feeling. I can really help you and your sensitive dog have a much happier and less stressful life. When I train I only ever use fear free, reward-based methods built around a solid framework of ethics and science. My goal is for you and your dog to have the best relationship possible and I strongly feel that a solid relationship starts out with an understanding of what your dog needs from you.

About IO

Io ‘fox’ is a 8 year old Rottweiler crossbreed. Io was my first dog that I bought since leaving home and she came to live with me in September 2013. She is the very reason I do the job that I do today because I wanted to learn more about training and understanding these marvellous creatures. IO has assisted me throughout various workshops, including my scentwork instructor course and often helps me by acting as a helper dog.

About Bigby

Bigby ‘fable’ is my 7 year old Smooth Collie. The Smooth Collie is one of the UK’s vulnerable dog breeds and for reasons I do not know as they’re a fantastic breed. Bigby has been one of my greatest teachers. After all, our four-legged companions are who can teach us about dogs the most. Bigby can find his world completely overwhelming so my job as his guardian is to ensure he has many positive experiences to reflect back on.

About Fsmo

Fsmo is my 5 year old Shetland Sheepdog. Fsmo is my absolute shadow and it is such a pleasure that he came into my life. He is simply wonderful and often assists me with clients as one of my helper dogs.
