Learn The 5 Life Skills

You and your dog will learn how to work with 5 simple and practical skills. These skills are easy to teach and will help you feel more confident doing more things with your dog out in the world. 

Come when called

You will learn multiple approaches to getting your dog to come back to you and keeping them safe. Including an emergency recall for moments when you really need to get your dog fast. 

Don't pull on the leash

Your dog can walk on the leash behind or in front or beside you - as long as they're not pulling you. This is developed with intrinsic teaching, where they learn how to do it all by themselves without ever having to be told.  

hard boundary

Your dog will learn not to leave the house or yard or vehicle until you give the "okay" all clear. And the best part is your dog is going to learn to do it all by themselves - without you telling them anything. 

manners

Manners is teaching your dog to be aware of how they interact with others and their affect on them. They learn to do it by themselves, which makes them more trustworthy and easy to integrate into all kinds of situations.

STOP on command

This is one of the best emergency tools you can have. Because they just have to stop and freeze in place where they are until you give the "okay". It creates more safety and ease. 

What makes shamanic dog training different? 

Shamanic dog training is guided by principles and elements that provide guidance and support to you and your dog. Far beyond just the skills that you'll build, you'll also develop a body of knowledge that will nourish your relationship and life together.

the 4 tenets of shamanic dog training

Relationship

The relationship you and your dog have with each other is just as important as the skills you are building. 

Equals

Our dogs are treated as equals. We live and work with them in right relationship.

Conscious

We see and hear our dogs as conscious beings. We acknowledge their intelligence and emotions, and their sense of self. 

choice

Our dogs are invited to choose and make their own decisions. We provide clear information and do not use corrections or rewards to influence them.

Micky took the program, with Blue Sky 

"I found it more to be a kind of Shamanic Relationship Training, and as much for me, as for Blue Sky. 


It has helped me to trust the language of my heart and my intuition, and to realize that, as it turns out, this is the same language that Blue speaks.


It teaches a different perspective , and that is, as Tamryn put it, “learning how to BE is different than learning how to DO.”


Learning how to ‘be’ involves internal motivation, and acting in a way that pleases the learner, from within. Learning how to ‘do’ involves external motivation, such as commands and treats.


Blue and I have attended many classes where the emphasis was on the ‘do’ part. In Tamryn’s classes, learning how to ‘be’, was refreshing, inspiring, and so affirming to what I already felt in my heart!


This is so much more than 16 weeks of classes. For us, this is forever!"

Ashley and Bear took the program

Bear (right) with her housemate Nibbles

"I just wanted to thank Tamryn for her incredible insight and support throughout the Shamanic Dog Training course.

I adopted Bear in July 2020 and she was unlike any dog I’d ever had before - I thought I knew a lot about dogs and could handle most things but Bear (and Tamryn!) came to teach me a whole new way of working and being with them.

When everything I’d learned over the years about positive reinforcement and being the “leader” of your dog failed to work with Bear, I felt like I was in way over my head and knew I had to find help and a different approach to “dog training” and thank goodness I found Tamryn!

Tamryn was amazing to connect with right from the start. Her approach and energy just felt like the right match for us and I was hopeful her methods in working with dogs would help us. 

And this is where I say a huge thank you because she ended up helping us even more than I ever could have imagined. 

I should probably say that Bear still isn’t the easiest dog ever but I can say that I know how to relate and interact with her in a manner than makes both of our lives so much easier. 

Most importantly I learned that I was withholding love and trust. Two very important factors in our relationship...

Each class builds on the last session so as not to get overwhelmed.

Marty and Diane & Rachel

"From my own perspective, two standouts from the shamanic philosophy are: emphasis on relationship above all and letting go of prevalent beliefs about how dogs should be, as well as addressing those beliefs when interacting with others.

An ongoing self-reminder that conflict is a natural process that leads to growth is very helpful with a puppy as well! In balanced relationship there's mutuality - we want the best for each other and for ourselves, and that becomes clearer as our time with Marty continues.

Much of the value in the classes is not just what it introduces but also that it underscores many of the beliefs that led us here. Marty would be loved and valued whichever classes we chose, but I believe he will be more contented, fulfilled and happy as a result of Tamryn's wonderful classes.

We can see how Marty is more able to (somewhat!) respond with increased attentiveness at learning times…

Frequently asked questions

What if I can’t attend all of the LIVE sessions?

It works best if everyone is there and committed for each class. Of course, sometimes emergencies and unavoidable circumstances come up. If you can't attend a session, please let us know and the replay will absolutely be available.

We would love to have you in the program. Please review the class dates and times and make sure the dates work for you before deciding to enroll in the program. You can also check your local time zone to see if the classes are at a different time (and date) for you. 

NOTE: if the class dates don't work for your schedule, you can be notified when the next group session starts. And when the self-paced program for individual study is released. To be notified when the next group program is available (and self-paced programs too), click here.

I have a dog with complex issues. Will this program be helpful for that?

This is a comprehensive training program that will give you all the tools for working with your dog's complex issues. If you feel you need help applying the lessons and teachings to your unique situation, there is plenty of opportunity to receive direction from Tamryn Fudge, your instructor. Options for extra help include:

  • Questions in class - there will be time for discussion during our live classes. You can ask your questions then and get answers in real time.
  • Questions outside of class - there are a number of ways you can get in contact with your instructor, Tamryn Fudge, outside of class hours. This includes comments and replies in the online course area and direct emails to Tamryn.
  • Strategy Sessions with Tamryn - when you enroll in the program, you get exclusive access to strategy sessions with Tamryn. These are only available to clients who are already enrolled in programs. It is a one-on-one session with Tamryn where the focus is only on you and your dog. As a member of the group program you receive a discount on your first strategy session. 
  • Shamanic Reading with Tamryn - you can get your questions answered directly by your dog. During a shamanic reading, you get to hear exactly what your dog is saying in response to your questions. You get to hear their questions and what they want you to know. It is an opportunity to understand each other better. When you enroll in the program you receive a discount on your shamanic reading when you make the booking.

I have a puppy. How old does my dog need to be to join the program?

It works well if your dog is 5 months or older. However, if your dog is younger than 5 months the program will still be helpful for you. You might need to ask a few extra questions about the stages your puppy is going through. Such as chewing and biting and house training, etc.

If you start this program with your young puppy, you will be well prepared to guide your puppy through their development. Although you will still be going through all of the phases together, which are sometimes difficult, you will have so many tools to help and support you.

I don't have any experience with shamanic dog training. Can I still join this program?

You don't need any prior experience to join. This program is designed to take you through shamanic dog training from start to finish. You will be guided step by step through the process, and the lessons and teachings are simple and practical to learn. 

Want more information? Have some questions? 

You can contact Tamryn Fudge, your instructor. She will answer your questions and share more information and help you decide if shamanic dog training and this online LIVE group program is a good fit for you and your dog. 

You can email Tamryn or have a schedule a phone call with her:
