Anna’s advice was tailored specifically to the needs of my hip dysplasic young dogs, and was given in such a way that it was fun to follow. It felt like a very positive learning experience.

Why Widget's Farm?

At Widget's Farm we believe in the amazing skills of companion animals, skills that have co-evolved over thousands of years of living alongside humans.  But even with such a long relationship, sometimes things go a little wrong, and both you and your pet can end up wondering what the other wants.

Pets can develop problems for all sorts of reasons and it is not a reflection on you as a owner.  At Widget's Farm we support owners by correctly assessing a pet's specific issues and then providing simple, but effective, treatment.  

Widget's Farm is a company founded on expertise and strong client support.  Anna has an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour and undertakes continued professional development to ensures all assessments and treatments are based on the latest scientific understanding of companion animal behaviour.  Anna is a full member of the IMDT.

Anna is also a provisional member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC), which means having gained the relevant academic qualifications, Anna is gaining the practical experience necessary for full membership.
