Canine Communication Tutor Sessions

Building your dog’s confidence by learning their unique communication signals.

Canine Communication is all about how dogs interact and 'talk' to each other. We may share the same space with dogs however we experience the world very differently.  By learning their unique signals we can encourage our dogs to be more confident and lead 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.  Learning Canine Communication will provide you with the skills to use their signals in a range of situations to build their confidence.

Some of the common behavioural issues we can assist with;

  • The barking door bell
  • That pesky possum who just wants to taunt your dog
  • Playing safely in a dog park
  • Is leaving the house a stressful event?
  • Do you know when your dog wants time out?
  • Supporting your dogs when walking past other dogs
  • Greeting other dogs respectfully

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.
