Important: James Carroll has had a serious accident and is currently unable to work. From mid-January he will be available for virtual consultations. If you would like to enquire about a virtual consultation, please contact James via email. James is expected to be available for in-person consultations from around late March. 

If you need to see someone in person soon, please refer to the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors’ website:


If you would like to discuss your needs for behavioural services, please contact me (free of charge) by email or phone and I’ll be happy to help.


Phone: 07814 517758

Email is my preferred communication format as I often can’t answer the phone (when I’m in consultations), but if you want to speak to me by phone before you book something, we can arrange that by email for a time when we’re both free, for a free-of-charge 5-10 minute phone conversation about your dog’s issues. In the first instance, just send me an email with your dog’s name, age, sex, breed, and a description of the issues that you want to address, and most enquiries can be booked by email unless you want to chat to me by phone also.

I cover most (but not all) of the Greater Manchester area and a little bit outside of it. If you are unsure if I cover your area or not, just send me your address (with postcode).
