Dogs Unpacked

Who is your dog?

Have you ever looked at your dog and wondered, "What's going on in there?"

You're not alone

This course will help you get to know your dog on a deeper level than you ever thought possible. It will help you understand their needs and how to meet them where they're at.

So many undesirable behaviours are a dogs communication of their fundamental needs not being met. Through this course you will not only learn the why the behaviours are happening but have a frame work to begin to address meeting your dogs needs.
