I had a telephone consultation with Hanne regarding two of my dogs who had started to behave aggressively towards each other. Despite never having met either dog, Hanne pretty much described them and their behaviours to perfection and, as a result she has been able to give me a number of ideas to follow in order to improve the situation. Already, in just a few hours I am seeing positive changes which has led to a much more relaxed atmosphere in the house. The knowledge Hanne displayed throughout our call was phenomenal.
