I have a natural affinity and ability with dogs. I understand dogs, and they understand me. My focus is helping my clients understand their dogs natural instincts, drives and behaviour, from the dogs perspective, not a humans. Many dog owners tend to get too focused on viewing their dogs environment and relationships through their own human reasoning and not from the dogs.perspective. This is why so many behavioural issues such as anxiety, reactivity, aggression, fear, etc, develop. I discuss and demonstrate with my clients how important it is to understand how their own energy and body language affects how their dog relates them. Also, the importance of understanding their dogs body language, so they can better understand what their dog is trying to communicate to them. Unless we understand what our dog is trying to communicate to us, the less likely we are able to help our dog, and the more likelihood of confusing our dog. 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 issue 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
