Tamryn's specialty is helping people understand their dogs. She combines intuition and experience to develop training plans to suit each client and dog to create the outcome they want.
Tamryn listens to her clients carefully, setting out to meet their expectations and help them achieve their goals. She approaches each dog with fresh eyes – never confident that she knows best until she follows the dog's lead and discovers his or her own individual nature.
Tamryn avoids training methods that cause separation within the relationship, such as dominance, intimidation or punishment. Her gentle methods are powerful in changing even tough cases that might otherwise seem unresponsive.
Tamryn believes that all dogs are capable of becoming responsible for their actions. Her training methods focus on fostering a dog's internal awareness, helping him or her become better at processing the energy and emotion that arise during times of difficulty.
Tamryn teaches people how to connect with the dogs at a level that supports a natural re-balancing of relationship and family dynamic and results in a more confident and mindful dog. Dogs learn how to make decisions that maintain peacefulness and inner calm, by following and trusting the instruction provided by their people.
When dogs are offered the support and information to make better choices, they make better choices. They rarely react poorly because they want to or choose to – it is most often because they are struggling to make sense of the experience they are having. When we offer the right information and assistance, they are usually grateful for the help; gladly receiving it and making new decisions.
