Each dog deserves to be understood.
Sharing two-way communication through awareness and appropriate response to canine body language, along with understanding canine behaviour and psychology, will help dog and owner build a deeper relationship based on mutual trust and respect.
However much we may love our dogs, from time to time problems can arise. This may be due to a wide variety of reasons ranging from health issues to traumatic past experiences. Some dogs may develop issues related to “aggression”, socialisation or separation, or may be struggling in their environment with fear, insecurity, stress or hyperactivity. Whatever the case, we offer practical guidance and support for the specific needs of each individual, dog and owner alike.
With Sheila Harper you will enjoy a unique approach to learning about and working with dogs.
Our primary purpose is to educate, but in an ethical way, that recognises each dog as an individual, and places them at the centre of all the work we do.
We have studied, extensively, the root causes of behaviour and environment related problems and believe that human / canine partnerships, developed through a two way communication-based system, provide the best remedy.
This means that we promote an holistic approach which includes kind dog training; understanding canine behaviour and language, and employing humane methods of handling. Our approach includes full consideration of the part played in the canine body and mind by stress, nutrition and health issues.
