I TRAIN DOGS USING THE

canine communication

&

lifestyle fulfilment strategies

I HAVE LEARNT THROUGH MY 13 YEARS OF ACCUMULATED EXPERIENCE IN THE DOG TRAINING INDUSTRY.

It's a no fluff approach - helping you and your dog understand each other better, reduce frustration and conflict, and create an UNBREAKABLE BOND.

With me, there is no such thing as feeling that your opportunistic dog is 'not always listening' or 'unpredictable'.

I will teach you how to embrace your dog's instinctual desire to be good so that you can build a stress & conflict-free relationship with your dog.

I'm not here to teach you tricks, but to teach you CANINE COMMUNICATION & LIFESTYLE FULFILMENT STRATEGIES that will help you

raise the good dog  you have always dreamed of!

MY DOG IS
balanced
Active when I am active,
relaxed when I am relaxed. 

MY DOG IS
sensible
She knows how to read situations and behaves accordingly.

MY DOG IS
reliable
She is consistent with her behaviours and I never have to worry.

MY DOG IS
a pure joy!
She is truly a 'man's best friend' and I feel relaxed and proud when she is with me.

BUT IT DIDN'T JUST WORK FOR MY DOG AND I

It Also Worked For My Clients & Their Dogs

They went from feeling that their dog is 'not listening' to having an even stronger bond.

Walks have gone from high excitement and pulling, to walking with calmness

Their dog is no longer reactive to other dogs and people, both on walks and at home

They went from feeling stressed to feeling confident in social environments

Having guests over is no longer an embarrassment

And most importantly, they found joy in dog ownership again

This is the result of

13 years of accumulated knowledge and skills

in effective DOG COMMUNICATION &
LIFESTYLE FULFILMENT
.

My Story

Born in Hong Kong, I live in Melbourne with my husband, Murphy our Labrador, and Marlo our feisty cat ;)

I grew up under the claws of a typical 'Tiger Mum', have a Bachelor degree in Veterinary Science and a Masters of Teaching in Early Childhood. 

Over the past 14 years, I trained exotic animals in zoos, wildlife in game reserves, and assistance dogs for people with various disabilities. 

I accumulated high-level knowledge in the animal industry, reflected on my own upbringing under Tiger Parenting, combined my knowledge in Early Childhood education, and developed a unique philosophy that focuses on effective communication and lifestyle fulfilment between humans and dogs.

In 2022, I felt my calling as a teacher to share the expertise and knowledge I gathered with family pet owners, so I quit my job to build my own business. 

Over the few years, I have helped thousands of owners transform their relationship and lives with their dogs.

 

The feedback I got was phenomenal. 

I am desperate to get my knowledge out to more dog owners so they can raise a good dog who is always attentive and relaxed, without the need of constant commands or instructions. 

 

I am keen to help you gain the knowledge necessary to reduce frustration and conflict, create a strong understanding, deepen your relationship and build an unbreakable bond with your dog.
