When it comes to your Pet Custody Agreement, my focus is on the long-term wellbeing of your pets. Going through Pet Custody Mediation means that an informed and fair decision can be made by the two people who know, and love, the pets the most.

I  know from more than 25 years professional experience working with dogs and their owners how difficult it is to understand what is best for your dogs in divorce. I have also witnessed how traumatic this time can be for dogs who can get caught in the middle of the situation. If you are going through a divorce, or have been through one, and need professional advice on your custody agreement please don’t hesitate to contact me.

 There is no one size fits all solution. In my experience, things like shared custody, visitation rights, moving to a different home, shifting between parents with the children will affect different dogs in different ways. Each family, pet and their dynamics have to be looked at individually.

As an animal behaviourist, I will advise you what is best for your pets, in this situation. By assessing the needs of your particular animal’s breed, age, physical needs, relationship to members of the family, and your lifestyle, we will arrive at what is best for your pet. Click the icon to listen to a podcast on 'why do pets matter in divorce'

Legal fees are a huge consideration in any divorce. Fast-tracking often difficult and emotional issues, which arise when it comes to your pets will ultimately save you paying more. At the same time, you will be getting professional advice and giving your pets the best possible chance of having a successful transition.

In addition to pet custody agreements, I mediate other animal-related disputes, between neighbors, extended families, breeders or anyone else who has animal issues and would like to avoid the time and cost of going to court.
