Hayley O’Donohoe (née Etherton)

Hayley is currently on Maternity leave, We look forward to her return in the future.

Hayley joined the training team in late 2013 after she and her partner completed all of Canine Interaction’s training courses with their first puppy, Ollie. Hayley has a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and found the training methods and concepts matched consistently with her behaviour science and psychology knowledge. She enjoyed training so much she stayed on to help teach others and further her skills.

Hayley now has two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Ollie (4 years) and Kya (3 years), who provide their fair share of training challenges. Their unique needs have developed her interests in anxiety and stress in dogs and behaviour modification in particular. However, she is always looking at new information and is building a motley library of knowledge on training techniques, behaviour theories, and dog-to-dog and human-to-dog interactions too. She loves in-depth learning and enjoys reading the latest research, watching tutorial videos, and attending conferences, seminars and professional development webinars on dogs in her spare time. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) Australia and Pet Professional Guild (PPG) and attended the APDT conference for the first time in 2015.

The rest of her life is taken up by the final stages of her PhD on human behaviour and working in the not-for-profit sector. You’ll typically see Hayley taking level 2 and 3 classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
