Welcome to Mindful Mutts
Mindful Mutts is Jackie and Steve, two qualified dog behaviourists and mindfulness practitioners.
Our mission is to share with you just how easy it can be to have a well behaved and balanced dog. As owners of once reactive dogs we have experienced the many feelings that go along with that and, made all the common mistakes. This prompted us to study everything we could find about the owner/dog relationship. We discovered some gems and had a few surprises, but the more we learned, the more our dogs became the balanced animals they were meant to be. We learned the importance of the right kind of communication between us and our dogs.
We will share with you just how much influence you have on your dog and how you can use this influence in a positive way. Mindfulness can be of great help with this, and we will share information and techniques with you. We take a holistic approach, looking at all aspects of the relationship between you and your dog. Often this is where we will find some imbalance but, by taking a fresh look at how we think about, and relate to our dogs, we can make the necessary adjustments to bring balance back to the relationship. So if you have a dog with a behaviour that you have been unable to change do not despair, we can help.
Letting dogs be dogs
Regardless of size, breed or age all dogs have the ability to exist peacefully with dogs and humans alike. They just need to be given the opportunity to do so.
Everybody’s circumstances are unique so we tailor our services to fit your particular case or situation. Your journey starts with an assessment in your home or at our office so we can determine the best course of action for you and your dog
