About business owner Alison Winters
Alison runs Lincolnshire based Pet Potential, with the help of a knowledgeable and friendly team of volunteers.
Supportive. Approachable. Down to Earth. Fun.
I enjoy helping owners to develop a fun and rewarding relationship with their pet, whether this be a dog, cat or rabbit; and have a commitment to using force-free methods based on up-to-date scientific research and an ability to treat both animals and humans with compassion and respect.
Helping people improve their relationships with their pets is my main goal.
My own dog Meg taking part in a research project at the University of Lincoln, to help further our understanding of canine behaviour
With a strong academic background in human psychology and clinical animal behaviour, I have been trained by the UK’s leading veterinary behaviourists to understand the emotional side of a pet’s behaviour.
