Inga was one of the first pet behaviourists in the UK accredited as a Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist for both dogs and cats. She is a Full Member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC), an organisation recommended by the RSPCA.
In order to ensure the best welfare for pets and to offer a knowledgeable and professional service, Inga attained the highest qualifications possible and holds a Masters Degree: Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling from Southampton University.
Inga ran a successful behaviour practice in the South East of England for fifteen years before moving to rural mid Wales in 2013. She frequently appeared on local, national and regional radio (BBC Radio 4, BBC Southern Counties) as well as on TV. She is co-author of ‘The APBC Book of Companion Animal Behaviour’, having contributed a chapter on ‘The Importance of Positive Reinforcement’.
Inga was the Press and PR Officer on the APBC Committee for eight years and was often asked to give advice on behaviour or comment on pet related news items to the media, e.g. The Times. She was the behaviour expert for Cat World magazine for many years and was a regular contributor to ‘Pets International’ a pet trade magazine.
Inga has also given talks and presentations to veterinary staff, dog trainers and behaviourists on a variety of subjects such as: What is a Behaviour Counsellor?, Cat Aggression and Enrichment for Dogs.
Inga also has a degree in Marketing and had many years of experience in the advertising and magazine publishing industries before becoming a full time pet behaviour counsellor.
