In memory of my special girl, Ellie

18th May 2000 – 28th September 2015


I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind;
But I can't forget, if I wanted to,
Four-Feet trotting behind.


Day after day, the whole day through
Wherever my road inclined
Four-Feet said, "I am coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.


Now I must go by some other round,
Which I shall never find
Somewhere that does not carry the sound
Of Four-Feet trotting behind.

Candy d'Sa - expert in animal behavioural problems

Candy d'Sa - animal behaviour expert

For the past 14 years I have been treating behavioural problems in dogs, cats and other companion animals. My experience, coupled with a sound scientific knowledge ensures that you and your pet receive a professional service.

As well as dealing with behaviour problems, I also assess pets whose owners wish to foster, adopt or mind children and need to meet agency safety requirements, or when local authorities have concerns about a dog's behaviour in the family home.  In addition, I am a court-accredited Expert Witness in both prosecution and defence cases, conducting behavioural assessment and breed identification of dogs whose owners are facing prosecution.

I am based in east Hampshire and also cover parts of Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Sussex, London and the remaining Home Counties. For legal work my range is nationwide.

My own pets include Scout, a yellow Labrador Retriever, Mister Ky, an African Grey parrot and Charlie and Woody, tabby domestic shorthaired cats.
