Inspiredk9s cares deeply about your relationship with your dog. When you understand what your dog is saying, you can then give your dog a happy and healthy life.
Working in the Professional Guide Dog field since 1996, I have had the pleasure of working with many hundreds of dogs. Previously, I worked with competition horses in the UK and New Zealand.
My career with horses and dogs, has given me wonderful insight on how to work with mutual understanding and have fun for each dog I have the pleasure of engaging with.
Over the years, I have come to understand how we can influence our dog’s nervous and sensory systems and how we effect their mental, emotional and physical aspects. When communicating with dogs our approach, actions and voice have a consequence to how our dog feels and then responds.
Starting with the basics when working with a dog on their timeline, I build trust, observe how they learn and develop opportunities for ongoing success. Sharing the knowledge with you and building upon these new skills enables you to have a fun, safe and trusting relationship with your dog.
Building trust, safety and confidence at both ends of the leash will bring a deeper level of friendship.
Through video, blogs, courses and webinars you will learn what you need to know for you and your dog to be successful.
I am a Volunteer Behaviour Consultant with the Animal Health Care Advisory Committee at Algonquin College in Ottawa and I am also involved with local dog rescues.
Thank you Wilz and Bud, you have been my greatest teachers.
