4 Legs Good

4 Legs Good is mainly me, Claire Kirby, with 16 years of experience and quite a lot of qualifications.  I have helped hundreds of people with their pets’ problem behaviours, and I still feel lucky to be working with people to help them identify, understand and resolve problems to improve welfare of both people and pets. 
These days, I’m working with Abbey Vets in Shrewsbury and in return for helping them make the practice more behaviourally aware, they do my bookings!  We also accept referrals from other local practices which means that you don’t have to be with registered with Abbey vets to see me. 

Please contact Abbey vets for more information and to book.  

In addition to seeing dogs and their people, I write what I hope are useful blog articles for dog and cat lovers to help them understand and live more harmoniously with their pets.  I also write the ‘Green Dog Blog’, where I hope to help dog and cat lovers keep their pets more in harmony with the planet.  Check the 4 Legs Good environmental and ethical statement here.

Inevitably, over the years, through working with people and their pets, I’ve developed video and written resources.  It seemed a shame not to make these accessible to other trainers and behaviourists, so I have further refined the ‘4 legs good professional resources’ and they are available to other dog professionals through this website.  These are probably most useful for up and coming professionals who have not yet developed resources of their own.  There are videos of live consults for trainees to observe and also my dog training manual and report writing system for other behaviourists to use with their own clients.   The 81 page dog training manual also works as a stand alone resource for both dog owners and dog trainers (for use with their  clients).

Claire is currently unable to take any new clients. She will be taking bookings again in October.

If you need the support of a behaviourist in the meantime, then get in touch with Megan Richardson at Pro-Positive Pet Behaviour & Training.


“first time on the beach. She loved it! Even had her off the lead for a while. Can’t thank you enough, Claire, never thought we would get to her to this point”

“I was thinking about you the other day, without the training and treats I don’t know what we would have done really”
