The live webinars are designed to help you create a relaxing and calm environment for your dog by understanding their unique communication signals. Whether you are new fur-parent, a renewed one or maybe struggling with the dog you adopted during Covid times, we are here to support you and provide the education to create a relationship for life.By learning the way dogs communicate with each we learn their language not ours.

This informative webinar is facilitated by an internationally qualified person who has a Diploma in Canine Communication, a Certificate in Canine Nutrition and is an expert coach who will provide the guidance to allow you to understand how to best support your dog.

The physical and emotional well being of our dogs is shaped by the choices we as pawrents make for them. Stress in dogs is a leading cause of behavioural issues. Can you identify the finer stress signals? These are communication signals dogs learn to communicate with each other. We are big believers of teaching fur-parents to undertand and support their dogs when they are trying to communicate their stresses with you. Learn the Science behind creating a calm and relaxing environment for your dog. After all, that is what they deserve.

Whether it is separation anxiety, excessive barking or being scared to walk past other dogs, these are all signs of stress and they can have a long term impact on your dog's health and wellbeing

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.
