I have had dogs in my life for over forty years and have spent the last twenty one years working hard to gain my reputation as a responsible and reputable breeder of working dogs under my affix Raezhaven. I am a Dog Training Professional Full Member of the PPGBI, a Tellington Ttouch Training Practitioner Apprentice, working towards full qualification and a student and Affiliate Member of The International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour (ISCP).
Puppies are my passion and are such a joy to teach and it is no surprise to anyone that knows me to reveal that their needs are at the heart of developing my learning programme at Four Paws Learning. I am dedicated to teaching puppies and dogs of all ages and their guardians, the skills and strategies they need to better understand each other and keep themselves and their dogs safe in the real world. I aim to make learning fun and teach in a gentle way that is mindful and positive for all concerned both canine and human.
Finding a way to balance all the teaching that has influenced me over the years, especially in the last two years, and create a learning pathway that has a holistic approach, has been a journey of discovery. Experimenting with synergy that fits, that has the dogs’ needs at the centre and strives to explore and encourage the learner’s quest to develop a deeper understanding of their canine friend. The aim has been to empower the learner and enrich the canine human relationship by providing the tools and knowledge necessary to achieve their goals.
The feedback I have received from friends and clients has encouraged me to move forward in my thinking, formulate the skills I have learnt, use the experiences I have had and as a result, I am excited to be launching my S.A.S TEAM training modules developed from my Soup And Sandwiches blog post.
The workshops and a little taster of what they will contain can be learnt about HERE. Handler places are limited but observers will learn plenty and have the opportunity for hands on practise too.
If you are interested in attending or hosting these workshops, please do not hesitate to contact me for more information or to book your dates. You will see that we already have the first four dates in Hampshire and another four are about to be launched in Devon in the next few days.
2018 is only just around the corner, take up the invitation to learn and be a part of S.A.S. TEAM!
