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 reactive 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.

I am a student member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) and I am studying Ofqual Level 5 Diploma in Canine Behaviour Practitioners with The DoGenius

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. In the past we have done fun agility, scentwork, both KC and TD RALLY and fun dog shows. Nowadays she is trained to do numerous tricks and also enjoys canine parkour. Io is trained using fun and reward-based methods.

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. I have learnt a lot from Bigby due to his lead reactiveness as a frustrated greeter and feel it has made me a more knowledgeable dog owner. Knowledge is key when owning or being around a reactive dog. He enjoys nothing more than snoozing on the sofa but he also enjoys working for food and he has been a real learning curve to how different teaching individual dogs can be.

About Fsmo

Fsmo is my 4 year old Shetland Sheepdog. Fsmo is trained with all aspects of agility and he absolutely loved doing it. Both his parents are very successful in agility competitions. He has also shown a keen interest in learning new tricks and has already earnt several titles and we hope to gain more in the future.
