About Tamryn

Tamryns story Infinite Dog

I suspect you have come here, to the “about Tamryn Fudge” page, to see exactly what I am all about. These ideas I am sharing – like shamanic dog training – are a little unusual, I admit. Talking about dogs’ awareness and consciousness and speaking about sacred partnerships (you didn’t miss that bit, did you?) are not what you might expect to find at a dog training website.

So, who is this lady, you might wonder. Is she a little off her rocker? Is she a little (or a lot) delusional? Does she have any idea what she is talking about? Any credentials at all?

I would be doing the same thing, in your position. Especially if you are new to shamanic dog training, which most of us are. It is not something you come across every day, although I bet it feels really true to you at some level – like something you always knew was true, but have never articulated because you were not sure it is the “right”, “correct”, “okay” or “normal” way to do things.

Let me tell you a little about myself, so that you can determine where you stand on this whole shamanic dog training thing and the woman who is bringing these ideas forward.



Suspending disbelief

First, I can tell you that I was just as suspicious as you may be upon hearing these ideas for the first time. For me, it was when I heard a woman speak about telepathically communicating with her dog.

She told the story of how she shaved her dog’s tail, and how he (her dog) told her how embarrassed he was about it, and he wished she hadn’t done it. The people around me, who were familiar with animal communication, were nodding their heads and laughing at the charming story. Whereas I was fighting with myself in my head: “did she just say that her dog SPOKE to her?” “Did she just say that they had a conversation?”

It didn’t help that the woman was more than a little eccentric, and so I shut myself off to the idea at the time, ignoring the possibility and deciding the woman was perhaps delusional.

It wasn’t until years later, when my husband and I were desperate for some help with one of our first dogs, Layla, that I had my second experience with animal communication. We were skeptical, but could not say no, as we were out of options for helping her, for understanding her condition.

Thankfully, the animal communication reading we had with Layla was really helpful and we received a lot of information that we could not have gotten any other way. And so began my bending of logic, my suspending disbelief and eventually my own exploration into the beautiful world of animal communication.

So, let me tell you that I completely understand if you are here at the “about Tamryn Fudge” page, looking for help in determining whether I am bonkers or I am incredibly sane (and very awake).

I started training to be an animal communicator sometime after the reading we had with Layla. I studied books and CD’s (a long time ago, I know) and when I was ready, took beginners and advanced workshops with Georgina Cyr. She helped me develop my skills and learn to “steer” my intuition in order to connect with animals in the ways I had always fantasized about. I have been an animal communicator for 10 years.

How would I describe myself?

I am honest, hard-working, organized and good with people. (Sounds like I am applying for a job? I am, in a way – I am applying for the job of being your dog trainer). I am gentle, analytical and have good communication skills. I am well-rounded; being equal parts brain, heart and gut.

Brain: I have a head for numbers and puzzles and problem solving. This helps me when it comes time to figure out what factors, isolated or in combination, are contributing to the issues you might be experiencing with your dog. As well, it helps me find part time work in public and private accounting when I need a change of pace.

Heart: I have a strong desire to help and to see people and their dogs find common ground to grow more love. My methods are gentle (not to be confused with weak or ineffective) and have a way of melting away frustration, discouragement, anger and resentment. I can help build bridges where it might not have been possible in the past.

Gut: I have a deep intuition, developed from years of living with a parent with mental illness, when I learned to read the invisible threads of conversations, interactions and body language and receive information below the surface of things. This works wonderfully to help people see and understand where their dogs are coming from, and to dissolve misunderstandings and conflict.

My work with dogs

I spent over 5 years apprenticing with dog behaviour experts Kathy and Gary Gibson – who helped me understand that you cannot learn dog training at any deep level by completing short courses intended to give you the mechanics of dog training, but not the truth of dog training. I shadowed them, assisted them and soaked in their combined 40 years of experience so that I could also tune into dogs at the level they were capable of.

Read More...

I have worked at veterinarians, exploring my desire to help dogs and their people, and walked dogs at animal shelters. I have fostered homeless dogs and helped them find forever homes. I have spoken on the radio, presented workshops to veterinarians and lectures to university classes, and I have trained staff for other dog daycares to help them adopt the techniques I employ in handling groups of dogs.

I spent time doing therapy dog work, agility, flyball and tracking. I have trained in first aid and Tellington T Touch, learning how to care for our canine friends with more care and intention. In short – I have done everything I could find and jump into, relating to dogs and their behaviour. I am committed to developing my skills in order to help you and your dog get along better and have more fun together.

What about shamanism?

The shamanism part of the puzzle – I will describe that one last. I came across shamanism when I was looking for someone to help me with the anxiety I had developed after years of living in and out of my mother’s mental health crisis cycles. While living with so much volatility was instrumental in shaping my intuition, it was also instrumental in creating an ongoing sense of instability inside of me.

They say that all blessings come with curses – or is it all curses come with blessings?

When I came to Kamloops, and I began getting more interested in animal communication, I began a meditation practice to still my mind and help me tune into the animals. My experiences were strong right away, and I found shamanism was helpful in learning how to discern and manage my abilities.

Shamanism is described in a huge variety of ways, and is very open to interpretation depending on what culture or tradition is being examined. For me, I will describe it as finding the connection to everything that is outside yourself. It is discovering that you belong in creation, you belong to creation – meaning you are woven into the world like a thread in a textile. Through shamanism, I discovered my kinship with all living things – something I had felt my entire life, but could not determine if it was real or not.

Shamanism has provided me a way to center myself in my life and connect to the creative force that guides us all, to find peace and love deeper than I have ever understood and to finally understand myself and all my parts. I feel at home in nature, and with dogs and animals. Shamanism helps me find the language and practice to share this with others and develop it more strongly in myself.

My studies in shamanism began with the completion of the cosmology for empowerment and continued on to mastery programs with Jose Luis Herrera of the Rainbow Jaguar Institute. I have travelled to Peru to receive sacred teachings and rites of passage, and have also spent time in learning and ceremony Canyon de Chelly, a sacred site in Arizona.
