Hi, I’m Jackie Bennett, the owner of Bella Behaviour. I am a certified animal behaviourist and trainer and a proud member of the CAPBT.
As a Tellington TTouch guild member, I am also qualified to use TTouch, a gentle training and rehabilitation approach, that supports animals to accept new experiences, and helps bring about real changes in behaviour.
These qualifications and memberships are important, as they show I have studied animal behaviour and therapeutic techniques over many years and in great depth.
I chose the name “Bella Behaviour” or “Beautiful Behaviour” for my business as it sums up my approach to pet behaviour. I want to help your pet be confident, relaxed and able to cope with everyday life. All too often I see stressed animals that have found inappropriate ways of handling events, that can then become learnt behaviours and become self-reinforcing. With positive advice and encouragement it’s possible to change this.
The name “Bella Behaviour” also refers back to my first cat, Bella. Alongside my gerbils and then guinea-pigs, Bella was my first love.
