Dogs as we know have their own personalities, preferences and quirks that have been formed from their life experiences.Learning to work with these qualities is what brings about the joy of being with our dogs. Rather than trying to get your dog to do what you want, it is essential we understand why they maybe uncomfortable, are able to encourage them in a positive manner and can respect their space.
As the Founder of Gourmet Pawprints, Kerry has seen a lot fur-parents who just want to learn more about their dog's signals and to gain the knowledge themselves so they support their dogs in a positive and construtive manner in a range of circumstances. Just as humans behave differently across a range of circumstances, so too do dogs. Knowing how to intrepret their signals will give you the confidence to experience a new dog friendly activities.
Kerry has spent her life working in a range of corporate communication roles and has a Bachelor of Science Degree, Graduate Diploma in Marketing and Masters of Business Administration. She was the first person to complete the Diploma in Canine Communication in the world with the trusted and professional organisation - Canine Principles. Kerry has now expanded her professional skills to take fur-parents on the journey of effective communication with their dogs.
It was important to Kerry to have completed 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.
As Hugh Mackay said “communication is a journey not a single event”, (Why Don’t People Listen – Hugh Mackay, 1994, page 118) and as such, we as humans need to work at how we send and receive messages to ensure we are communicating effectively. The same is true for our fur-kids, we need to learn their language so we can send and receive messages in a way which supports their development.
Our fur-kids have many life challenges and it is our responsibility as fur-parents to give them every opportunity to be able to share their life with you. There are many barriers to effective communication, including past experiences, values and views, judgement, perception of a particular outcome or just plain not listening.
