Victoria Stilwell was born and raised in
Wimbledon, England and has been
working as a dog trainer in London and
New York since 1990.

Currently, Victoria can be seen in the US,
UK and over 20 other countries
worldwide in the hit series, “It’s Me or the
Dog,” counseling families with problem
pets and solving their dogs’ behaviour
problems.  She has also written a
companion book for the series, titled “It’s
Me or the Dog: How to Have the Perfect
Pet,” published by Harper Collins and
Hyperion.  Her second book, "Fat Dog
Slim" was released in the UK in February,

In the early 1990's, Victoria created her
own successful dog-walking company and
immediately recognized the need for
qualified professionals to help her clients
with the training process.   While
pursuing a successful acting career
(working in the West End as well as in
numerous films, TV series, commercials
and voiceovers), she expanded her focus
into dog training and behavior counseling
by working with some of Britain’s most
respected positive-reinforcement dog
trainers and behaviourists.
In 1999, Victoria moved to Manhattan
where she co-founded Dog Trainers of
New York, a dog training and behavior
modification company working primarily
with families and educating children on
safe and effective dog handling.  Her
unique background, personal sensitivity
and innate training skills quickly made her
one of New York City’s most sought-
after dog trainers.  With a particular
fondness for rescue animals in need of
behavior rehabilitation, she devoted much
of her time and energy to a number of
the many animal rescue organizations in
New York, serving as an advisor and
giving regular seminars on the subject of
dog rescue, training and rehabilitation.
