Trish is a former broadcast journalist who needed a career change. She'd had a passion for dogs all her life, even as a toddler. After much nagging, for her 6th birthday, her parents gave her a beautiful blonde labrador she called Beauty. Then came Skipper, a dalmatian mix who followed her home from primary school. After Skipper passed, came Samson, a German Shepherd who broke everyone's heart when he was hit by a car at the age of 2. Years of work and travel then meant no dog, until Trish was wandering the Victoria Markets in Melbourne...a cardboard box with one tiny, scruffy pup in it and a sign saying $15.00. There began a love story which will never end, despite the fact that Snooky passed away many years ago. A little later, Snooky was joined by a rescued Maltese-Shih Tzu, Morrison, (named after the legendary singer, Van Morrison.) Now, there's Tequila, a 7-year-old rescue Papillon, one of the sweetest little dogs alive.

In 2008, when Trish was looking to leave her high-stress media career, she came across The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan. Trish began 2 years training with Cesar online, then in 2014 attended the Dog Psychology Center in Los Angeles for a week's intensive training with Cesar himself. Trish completed Fundamentals of Dog Psychology and Behaviour 1 in June 2014, and will return to LA in 2020 to undertake Fundamentals 2 with Cesar.

Trish is also in the early stages of developing a reality tv series, The Dog Magicians. Stay tuned!

Trish is a highly-skilled and intuitive behaviourist.
