Pawsonality is a dog and cat behaviour and training business, dedicated to helping people live well with their pets.

We are a husband and wife family partnership, Marcia and Deano Davey. Inspired by our collective experiences with dogs and cats growing up, in 2010 Pawsonality was born – training and behaviour that works with the individual pet’s personality.

Our logo – a hot pink heart with navy blue paw prints – represents our own relationship with our pets, both dogs and cats, all sizes and all breeds. From Winston the Bullmastiff mix to Meesha the Chihuahua and everything in between.
