I grew up around dogs on a large property in NSW and have always had them in my life.
Over the past 20 years I have become very active in the dog world and thought I had a good grasp on our Canine Companion – "how wrong I was".
I have read books on behaviour, attended seminars on different training methods including check chains, electric collars, positive and negative re-enforcement with “experts” who I thought knew it all. I have also been on the other side teaching Puppy Classes, Basic Obedience and Advanced Levels of Obedience, however
I always felt something was missing.
I hold a Certificate in Canine Communication & Advanced Canine Communication and have learnt the non-confrontational approach to the canine language and life through their eyes. I am able to help others understand what has helped me to have a calmer, kinder relationship with my own dogs.
When I took in an 8 year old dog with major issues. Toy Obsession, food obsession and aggression, human and dog aggression and loads of energy.
My world was turned upside down.
Normally, methods used to try and change his symptoms would have been focused on his individual symptoms. By using my Dog Listening skills and therefore becoming the calm and in control decision maker, I was able to relieve him of his stress by taking away his responsibility. I could do this by applying calm, clear and convincing messages while communicating in a language he understands.
Max was my teacher and this method taught me “Dogs fear what they don’t understand”
In my line of work I have seen many dogs euthanased for the above reasons. I was able to save Max’s life and will continue to help others from abuse or even death!
I dedicate myself to not only helping dogs but helping owners to understand their dogs.
I now have the missing link.
