As a balanced dog behaviour specialist I don’t restrict myself to a ‘one method suits all’ ideology. I incorporate a holistic approach to training and behaviour modification. I adjust my methods, tools and techniques to suit the particular dog or behavioural issue we are addressing. If we limit our options by subscribing to a particular method or ideology we greatly restrict the help we can offer dogs.
My focus is on respecting a dog’s natural instincts and drives and utilising those to help dogs and their owners maintain a well balanced and harmonious relationship. I focus on the overall relationship between the dog and its owner, and the dog’s environment, as in most cases this relationship has become unbalanced, which is causing the dog to become confused, and therefore in many cases contributing to an overly anxious emotional state in the dog, and related behavioural issues.
