about your session

Your holistic dog training session includes theory and practice which encompasses a complete spectrum of essential and interdependent elements to create a happy, healthy, confident relationship with your dog.

During your session we’ll work through daily life with your dog.

You’ll learn how to unlock your natural ability to communicate and better understand your dog. The methods we’ll implement are based in pure logic and natural wisdom.

We’ll create a structure to build your confidence and your dog’s.

In your session, you’ll learn to…
  • Read and understand your dog’s body language.
  • Understand your own body language.
  • Mindfully use your body language to communicate with your dog.
  • Use all of your senses to communicate, just like your dog does.
  • Communicate to your dog without using your voice.
  • Stay connected to your dog:
    • While you’re interacting with other people and situations.
    • While your dog is interacting with other people, situations and the surrounding environment.
  • Know when your dog is asking for direction and support.
  • Know how and when your dog has something to teach you:
    • Dogs are amazing sensitive beings.
    • Our dogs try to help us when we’re struggling with our own challenges.
    • You’ll learn how to recognize when your dog wants to help you, and how to leverage her help.
  • Implement the supportive structure your dog requires in daily-life.
