About the Author
Karen Davison grew up in a large town in Bedfordshire, but as a child, her love of animals always drew her to the countryside, horse riding on weekends, come rain or shine. When she was eight, the family got their first dog, Scamp, who’s great character started Karen’s lifelong love of dogs.
Fascinated by their intelligence and complex social behaviour, Karen studied canine psychology, and the more she learnt, the deeper her appreciation of dogs grew. Karen has been working as a professional dog trainer and canine behaviourist since 2001.
Now she is living the dream. Karen resides in a country cottage on the west coast of Ireland, where she lives with her husband, two daughters and nine special needs pets. Her seven dogs and two cats have a mixture of emotional, behavioural and physical disabilities. With her expertise in dog behaviour and many years veterinary nursing experience, she is in a unique position to take on those animals that might not otherwise have had a chance for life.
One of Karen’s favourite sayings: ‘Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.’
Her first book, The Perfect Companion, Understanding, Training and Bonding with your Dog published in June 2012, condenses Karen’s knowledge and experience into one concise and comprehensive guide to canine psychology, training and problem solving, is an invaluable edition to any dog owner’s library.
Since then she has published Complete Guide to House Training Puppies and Dogs and two Fun Reads for Dog Lovers – It Shouldn’t Happen to a Dog Trainer and A Dog’s Guide to Humans.
