We had both owned dogs throughout our lives and had never experienced any real behavioural problems, as most people don’t. This changed for us both with the dogs we have now. Although both dogs were well trained and obedient, neither of them coped well with the outside world or other dogs. This is when we learned the difference between a training issue and a behavioural problem. We had both sought advice from trainers and behaviourists but they were unable to help, this left us feeling lost, lonely and desperate. Our search for help led us to a weekend pack walk run by a dog psychologist and this is where we met. We learned about dog behaviour first hand by watching our own reactive dogs starting to interact with a pack of dogs, many with their own issues. It taught us about how we are responsible for our dog’s behaviour and how and why our energy and emotions affected them. This experience ignited a real desire to learn everything we could so that we would be able to help other people and their dogs. This study led to us attaining diplomas in dog behaviour and setting us on a new life path as qualified dog behaviour practitioners. Since we met on those pack walks we have been learning everything we can about dogs and human relationships and have been exploring ways of passing on what we’ve learned and experienced.
