Canine Behaviour & Wellness Consultant

After illness and problems with my own dog, I realised that dogs are suffering from stress as many of their humans are.  I wanted to know how and why their emotional, physical and behavioural problems, re-occuring illness, ear infections, stomach problems, itchy skin etc. are related to stress.  So after many years working with herbs with my natural soap and toiletries business, and writing multiple books on natural products, I decided to change direction.


I wanted to understand what my dogs really needed so I trained in many areas, did research, attended seminars, completed courses, read scientific information, studied Canine Genetics, Canine Behaviour, Dog Training, Canine Massage, Myofascial Release, Acu-point Therapy (acupressure), Herbal Choices (Zoopharmacognosy), Neurophysiology, became a Reiki Master and Master Herbalist to understand what makes us, and our dogs, stressed and how to prevent and reduce stress.


In my Canine Behaviour Therapy Consultations, I take a holistic (whole) approach and discuss your dog's complete lifestyle, including stress triggers linked to symptoms.  Many people overdo so many things with their dogs, and I will teach you  your dog how little your dog needs to be a happy and relaxed.


What I have discovered from training in numerous canine therapies is that although most of us dearly love our pets, we do not necessarily understand their basic and primal needs.  I can teach you how to understand your dog's body language and behavioural responses.  Simple things can raise the adraneline such as ball throwing, over-exercise, over-training, poor diet etc, and this adrenaline can stack up and overflow causing stress-related health problems.  Unless you address these stressors, health problems can increase and symptoms persist.  Reducing the stressors and introducing simple calming foraging techniques (see brochure), for instance, can reduce adrenaline and release calming dopamine from the brain.


My own rescue dogs, Toby and Alice are now well on the way to becoming happy, calm and healthy dogs and I hope to be able to do the same for yours.
