About Hannah Molloy – MD of Pawfect Dogsense

hannah bio

Hannah is our head behavioural specialist and the managing director of Pawfect Dogsense. With a BSc Honors degree in Animal Behaviour she has been studying and working with dogs for over 15 years. She has worked as a training and behavioural advisor for Dogs Trust and also appeared on BBC Radio WM as their resident dog geek, dishing out advice on air about all manner of doggy problems. Most recently Hannah is appearing on Channel 4’s Puppy School as one of three expert behaviourists.  Hannah won the award for best presentation at the first International Animal Training Conference for her talk ‘Dog body language: Myths and Mirroring’ in 2013 and has gone on to design many other education streams and workshops ever since. She’s a registered temperament assessor for the charity Pets As Therapy and also co-ordinates fundraising activities and talks about the charity Medical Detection Dogs in her spare time. Her areas of special interest are dog body language, cultural attitudes to dog ownership, & the human and canine bond.

‘Dogs are amazing. I could have worked with any species but after graduating I came across the research published by Medical Detection Dogs that proved dogs can reliably detect cancer with their noses..  before any human test could show it was present!! This research only happened because hundreds of people were claiming their dog had detected their own cancer without being trained to do it. That was it for me.. the stark realisation that dogs have been walking with us for so many thousands of years, their sensitivity allows them to detect human disease!!  But it wasn’t just that, for this research to have happened 2 other factors are at play.. 1. The dog felt it could communicate this info to its owner… and 2. The owners were sensitive enough to listen to their dogs!! AMAZING!!

And yet.. what we ‘know’ about dogs culturally is so confused that dog welfare is still a huge problem across the world. Trainers still insist on teaching heavy handed tactics to create or punish normal behaviour and new dog owners are squashed and baffled by all the conflicting advice they hear in our industry.

So we stand up for dogs as a species. We teach owners to read their body language and sift through the cultural knowledge we have about dogs, separating fact from fiction. Dogs have evolved with us, they are willing workers, companions and friends and the time is now to give them the respect and patience they deserve.

Our mission is to open the eyes of every owner.. and teach them to speak dog!’

Jane – Pawfect Behaviourist

Jane’s natural affinity with dogs and people alike is joy to watch and we are very lucky to have her as a member of the Pawfect Dogsense Team! She’s currently completing her Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour and she specialises in nervous and rescue dogs. Jane runs our Puppy & Beginners group classes and provides 1-2-1 behavioural consultations at home. Jane has two dogs of her own and is often spotted mooching in the woods with  the bouncy Hanzo & relaxed Rex!

Michelle – Pawfect Behaviourist

Michelle studied Animal Behaviour alongside our MD, Hannah Molloy at Aberystwyth University. Until recently Michelle has been working for the RSPB but has decided to return to Canine Behaviour with a leap into Pawfect Dogsense CIC in 2018. We are very pleased that Michelle has decided to join us in Birmingham this summer before heading out South Wales to head up Pawfect Dogsense CIC Newport! Michelle specialises in training rescue dogs and has a real soft spot for bull breeds in particular.

Beth – Pawfect Behaviourist

Beth has a degree in Animal Behaviour and joined us back in 2017 shortly after graduating. Although she’s specialising in dog training, Beth has a huge love of cats and often consults on multi-animal households! Beth runs our puppy & beginners group classes, provides 1-2-1 consults at home and enjoys hosting our social walks too. We are thrilled to have such a charismatic and natural problem solver like Beth in the Pawfect Dogsense Team!

Helen – Pawfect Trainer & Strategy Manager

Helen is our corporate and commercial conscience in our CIC world! Helen joined the PD team as a volunteer in May 2018 and has helped us develop our vision for the future alongside training to be a behaviourist. She currently is running group classes in Kings Heath Park and is fantastic with humans and dogs alike. Her positive energy and appetite for learning is second to none!

Heather – Pawfect Trainer

We first met Heather through her professional dog walking business, Warley Walkies, but quickly snapped her up as a trainer due to her incredible natural affinity for dogs. She rehomed her first very own dog in 2017, Rocky had a tough start to life and Heather has worked so very hard with him to build his confidence and show him how to interact with other dogs calmly. She is a fantastic and passionate dog trainer and champion of rescue dogs!

Mark – Pawfect Trainer

Mark joined the Pawfect Dogsense Team after running his own training company for many years. He is often described to us as positive, patient and a keen problem solver! Mark and one of his dogs Heidi are often found at our Chat & Pat sessions or popping in for a school visit to teach children about dogs. When he’s not grooming the lovely Heidi, Mark can be found at our puppy play school sessions and group classes. With a real love of positive science-based training methods, we are so glad Mark joined Pawfect Dogsense!

Chloe – Operations Manager at Pawfect Dogsense HQ

Chloe is the powerhouse of Pawfect Dogsense working tirelessly in the office managing the diary, arranging consultations, talking to clients and keeping track of our social media streams and website. She can often be found smoothing the long ears of her basset hound Molly or distracting her rescue beagle Cassie away from her favourite game ‘opening the fridge’! Chloe has seen Pawfect Dogsense grow over the last 8 years and has helped with puppy classes, marketing missions, fundraisers and provided stooge assistance for dogs with reactive clients.
There is no end to the talents of Hannah’s patient and positive PA.

Lauren – Admin Assistant at Pawfect Dogsense HQ

Lauren joined us late 2018 to provide support in the office after Chloe finally admitted she needed another pair of hands. Lauren is an engaging client facing administrative assistant with a passion for rescue having volunteered for Animal House Rescue as a fundraiser for over 8 years. Lauren is also interested in pursuing a career in animal training for the media while strengthening the foundations of the Pawfect Dogsense office world. She is an exotic animal lover and currently has at home 2 dogs, 9 Tarantulas and a whopping 10 cats! Amazing!
