As a child I have always loved animals and I was fortunate that my parents aloud me to be surrounded by pets for most of my childhood.
As a young adult my husband and I got our first dog, he was a Labrador Retriever and we named him Gephetto. This dog was a heart dog... He was "made up" of love packaged in the body of a yellow Lab. With him we made so many training errors and he was ever so forgiving.
Two years went by and we got our second dog Ice, she is an Alaskan Husky. She led me on a different path of meeting wonderful dog people in America and learning about dog sledding in Alaska. Over the years our family grew where we now have 9 dogs and 2 that have passed away.
They led me to becoming a Professional dog trainer and behaviour consultant and now send me on a path of understanding energy and healing through self-selection of plant extracts as animals would in nature. I have come to understand the importance of balance between training, the energy that we put out towards our animals and the impact it has on their behaviour and the effects natural self selection has on behaviour and health.
I hope that through this site that you will come to understand the importance of balance between your own energy along with scientific training. All animals have emotions and we all have a intuition of what they are feeling if we trust what we feel.
Your own emotional well being has a direct effect on your animal. This does not mean one should anthropomorphize (giving animals human emotions) and there fore say that the animal is stubborn or spiteful.
Instead one needs to apply scientific training without using force or fear as a method of intimidation to decrease unwanted behaviours. We choose to focus on creating wanted behaviours by understanding that your emotions and behaviour has a impact on your animals behaviour will help you better train your dog.
I also do Animal Communication sessions to help balance training with what the animal is experiencing. I compliment these sessions with Zoopharmacognosy (self selection) which gives the animal the choice to select his own natural plant extracts and remedies as they would do in the wild. Different oils, minerals and clays are offered to the animal, based on the symptoms displayed – behavioural and/or physiological issues. The animal is given the opportunity to restore its health and self-medicate.
We strive to make all pets staying with us comfortable and relaxed and provide a stable and loving environment while your pet stays in our care. We are a smaller facility that provide optimum care and a professional service. We also provide supervised day care and walks while your dog stays at our kennels. We offer 13 spacious outside kennels that has synthetic lawn installed as well as good weather coverage. We also have a indoor cabin and a in-house option for smaller dogs and bunnies. All dogs come out regularly during the day and are not socialised with other dogs if not booked for day care or for training. We have been in the business for 10 years and have a large returning clientele.
