Stress and Dogs

Building your dog’s confidence one step at a time

Creating a calm and relaxing environment for your dog is what they deserve. Often it takes a personal session for your and your dog to really undestand each other. After all they are individuals with their own personality.

Learn how dogs communicate with each other and how you can use their unique signals to make everyday situations calmer and happier. Dogs have their own unique language and we can learn how to use their signals to make their journey with us a fabulous one. 

We may share the same space with dogs however we have a different language for experiencing the world.  By learning their unique signals we can make their spaces Happy, Healthy and Safe and to encourage our dogs to be more confident and lead a rich and rewarding lives. 

Creating a bond with your dog is the most essential way you can support them throughout their life and learning their language is the key to developing this rapport and respect for their needs.  Learn a range of techniques to create their more happy places for them and build their confidence.

The webinar and tutor sessions are specifically designed for fur-parents to; 

  • Use a range of techniques to create a calm and relaxing environment whether it is on a walk, in a dog park or when the thunder is coming
  • Learn to see the world from their perspective and to manage our expectations
  • Provide practical techniques to build your dog's confidence
  • Explain the science behind how dogs talk to each other

Do you have a dog who barks a bit too much at guests arriving? Or maybe you are not sure how to calm them on a walk past other dogs? What ever the situation, using their language will greatly increase their confidence and relax them.

Kerry is the founder of Gourmet Pawprints and has an international recognised Diploma in Canine Communication (and was actually the first person to complete this course in the world with Canine Principles).

Kerry also has a Bachelor of Science Degree, Graduate Diploma in Marketing and Masters of Business Administration and many years working with strategic communication.

I was important to Kerry to complete a course that was scientifically based and focused on the dog's needs not just 'training' them to do what we humans want them to do.
