We are here to help you learn canine communication not train your dog to do a particular activity. We only use positive reinforcement and do not believe in the outdated 'alpha dog' theory.
If the issue is your dog is pulling on a lead, then we will work with you to understand this behaviour and what they are trying to tell you. Once you know this, then with positive encouragement you can teach your dog not to pull.Read More
Dogs as we know have their own personalities, preferences and quirks from their many life experiences.Learning to work with these qualities is is the joy of being a fur-parent. Rather than trying to get your dog to do what you want, it is essential to understand why they maybe uncomfortable and to respect their space.
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 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.
