Fast Facts You Need To Know


Victoria created, co-produced and narrated this series for Blue Ant Media (syndicated worldwide including the Smithsonian Channel in the US) in 2018 and 2019. Each episode of the series highlights the extraordinary work of dogs around the world as they assist humans in amazing ways.


Stilwell served as one of three judges and behaviour experts on the SkyTV series Dogs Might Fly in 2016. The series tracked several rescue dogs from UK animal shelters as they worked with dog trainers to determine if one of them could learn to co-pilot a small airplane.


Stilwell is a critic of fox hunting and was among more than 20 high-profile people who signed a letter to Members of Parliament in 2015 to oppose Conservative prime minister David Cameron’s plan to amend the Hunting Act 2004.


Stilwell was honored with the prestigious “Excellence in Journalism and Outstanding Contributions to the Pet Industry Award” at the 2011 Global Pet Expo and was named ‘Dog Trainer of the Year’ by DogWorld Magazine at the 55th Annual Purina Pro Plan Show Dogs of the Year Awards Presented By Dogs in Review. She was named among 2009’s ‘100 Best & Brightest’ in the dog world in The Bark magazine. Stilwell won a 2009 CableFax award as Best Host in the Animals & Nature category. In 2009, It’s Me or the Dog was nominated for a People’s Choice Award in the US, and after its first season in the UK, It’s Me or the Dog was nominated in the ‘Best Factual Entertainment’ category in the UK’s TV Quick Awards. Her first book, It’s Me or the Dog: How to Have the Perfect Pet was voted one of the 50 greatest dog books ever written by Dogs Today magazine.

After many years without a pet dog of her own (due to the international travel schedule required for her various TV shows), Stilwell adopted a rescued chocolate Labrador named Sadie. In early 2011, Stilwell fostered a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher mix named Jasmine and decided to adopt her. Following Sadie’s death at the age of 15 in 2018, Stilwell adopted an elderly mixed breed dog named Bella. Prior to that, she had spent her time since 2000 fostering dogs due to be euthanised by local municipal shelters. Stilwell and her husband then gave the dogs a home while rehabilitating them and eventually finding suitable homes for the animals. She has explained that until her international travel requirements were reduced, owning a dog would have been irresponsible and not fair to the dog, considering how much the whole family travels. The family has re-homed over 50 dogs and cats.


In 2010, Stilwell created Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training – a global network of positive reinforcement dog trainers dedicated to spreading the word about positive reinforcement techniques and behaviourists.


Stilwell was one of three judges on the CBS show Greatest American Dog, in which 12 dog-owner teams compete for the title ‘Greatest American Dog’ and a $250,000 prize. The series debuted on CBS 10 July 2008.


From 2005 to 2012, Stilwell worked with unruly dogs on her TV show, It’s Me or the Dog, which has aired in over 125 countries. The show features Stilwell as she counsels families with problem pets and uses positive reinforcement training techniques to help them learn how to correct their dogs’ behaviour. Originally produced for Channel 4 in the UK, the show premiered in the US on Animal Planet in April 2007, and over 110 episodes have been aired worldwide. A typical episode involves a family struggling to cope with their misbehaving dog(s). Stilwell initially observes the problems in situ, then presents the family with her opinion regarding the causes of the issues. She then works with the family and their dogs to restore balance. Most recently the show has enjoyed a renewed focus thanks to the successful launch of the It’s Me or the Dog Youtube channel which airs clips and full episodes of the show.


Stilwell originally trained as an actress, playing roles in Bram Stoker’s Dracula in 1992, ITV1’s The Bill in 1994, and onstage in London’s West End theatre, as well as several commercials and voiceovers. She received a BA honours degree in Theatre from Middlesex University. In order to supplement her income as an actress, Stilwell’s veterinary nurse sister suggested that she start a dog walking agency. Within a month she was walking 20 dogs per day – 10 in the morning, 10 in the afternoon – and immediately recognized the need for qualified professionals to help her clients with the training process. She then expanded her focus to dog training and after moving to the United States with her husband in 1999, Stilwell co-founded several dog training companies up and down the East Coast.


Victoria Stilwell (born 20 July 1969) is an English dog trainer, author and television presenter. Stilwell has appeared as a pet behavior expert in and/or served as a producer on several international TV series including Dogs Might Fly (Sky TV), Dogs With Extraordinary Jobs (Smithsonian Channel), and Greatest American Dog (CBS), but she is best known as the star and creator of the international hit dog training TV show It’s Me or the Dog (seen in the US on Animal Planet and in the UK on Channel 4), counseling families with problem pets and solving their dogs’ behavior problems. Stilwell has used her platform as a media personality and a leading proponent of positive reinforcement-based dog training tools and methods to provide pet behavior advice based on modern behavioral science instead of traditional methods which typically employ multiple approaches including the use of pain, fear and intimidation. She is the Editor-In-Chief of the website, the founder and president of the Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training & Behavior, the CEO of the Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training (VSPDT) network of dog trainers, and other leading dog behavior institutions.
