Please Note: Due to my current work load, until further notice I am only offering in-home behavioural and obedience consultations. My private obedience lessons at parks and puppy packages have been placed on hold. If you are having obedience issues or need assistance with your puppy, you may wish to opt for my home consultations. Click here for more info on my home consultations.
I have a natural affinity and ability with dogs. I understand dogs, and they understand me. I have spent the past 38 years working professionally with dogs, and helping dog owners develop and maintain a well balanced and harmonious relationship. My focus is helping my clients understand their dogs natural instincts, drives and behaviour, from their dogs perspective. Many dog owners tend to get too focused on viewing their dogs through their own human based reasoning and not from their dogs perspective. This is why so many behavioural issues such as anxiety, reactivity, aggression, fear, etc, develop. During my home consultations I discuss and demonstrate with my clients how important it is to understand how their own beliefs and the way they interact with their dog affects how their dog relates to them. Unless we truly understand what our dog is trying to communicate to us, the less likely we are able to help our dog, and maintain a well balanced relationship. There needs to be 2 way communication that both dog and owner understand, if we want to raise a well balanced dog, and ensure a harmonious relationship.
I don't restrict myself to a 'one method suits all' ideology. I incorporate a holistic approach to training and behaviour modification. I adjust my methods and techniques to suit the particular dog and behavioural issues we are addressing. If we limit our options by subscribing to a particular method or ideology, we greatly restrict the help we can offer dogs.
