Our Philosophy

We are here to support a Happy, Healthy and Safe relationship with your dog through coaching you, the Fur-Parent. This means taking a holistic approach and looking at the connection you have with your dog. We want to get to know you as an individual and to utilise our expertise to guide the changes you want to see. Because dogs need trees, we like to think of this as a growth journey. Just as a tree grows in different directions depending on sun and water, you also grow and change over time. Your values, beliefs, knowledge and skills can all influence how you interact with and intrepret your dog's behaviour. We will help you build a trusting relationship that bring joy to you and your dog.

Learn the science behind creating a calm and relaxing environment for your dog. By learning their unique signals, you can make their space Happy, Healthy and Safe and encourage your dogs to be more confident and lead a rich and rewarding lives.

Canine Wellbeing

We may share the same physical space as dogs however we experience the world differently. The physical and emotional well being of our dogs is shaped by the choices we as pawrents make for them. Providing dogs with safe and effective choices gives them confidence and supports them as individuals.


Stress in dogs is a leading cause of behavioural issues and can have a long term impact on their wellbeing. Stress maybe associated with our beliefs, their learned behaviour and even their nutrition.


Our programs only use scientifically proven research and absolutely no force in any manner. We will guide you through information, everyday situations, practical skills and most importantly are a holistic approach to canine wellness so they can lead a Happy, Healthy and Safe journey with you.


It is important to note, that only a Veterinarian can diagnose your dog by law. This means that whilst we may discuss certain types of conditions, behaviours or nutritional foods during our programs, the information provided is to increase your awareness and knowledge. Any recommendations are general in nature and we always suggest you confirm these as suitable by your Vet.
