You and Your Dog

Getting the Freedom, Confidence and Trust That You Want

A 4-month LIVE shamanic dog training course to develop a conscious partnership and teach the 5 Life Skills.

Dear Dog Mom and Dad,

Thank you for considering the You and Your Dog group program.

During your time in the You and Your Dog program, you will spend time with other dog moms and dads just like you – who go out their way every day to make sure their dogs feel fulfilled and happy. Who don’t spend any time worrying about dominance or control, and rather focus on building family and love and friendship above all else.

If you say “yes” to your dog more than you say “no” to your dog, this is the place for you. You will learn how to maintain – and even strengthen - the open-hearted relationship you are building with your dog while teaching them everything they need to know to be even more involved and integrated into your daily life.

The You and Your Dog program is built around extremely functional and practical skills that are easy and simple to teach. So you and your dog can do more things together, even the things that feel overwhelming and challenging to tackle.

If you are looking for a way to feel closer to your dog and include them in more activities and adventures in your daily life – this training is for you.

I hope to see you and your dog in class ♥

With gratitude,

~ Tamryn Fudge

The 5 Life Skills

Everything you and your dog need 

With the 5 Life Skills, you will be able to handle any situation.
They are practical and simple to teach. They are even easier for your dog to learn, because they are designed to make complete sense to your dog. 

Come when Called

Keeping your dog close and connected to you is one of our main priorities. You will feel more confident right from the start. Learn multiple recall tools, including an emergency recall. 


Don't Pull on The Leash

When your dog pulls on the leash it can sometimes ruin the walk. Your dog will learn to monitor the pressure they put on the leash - all by themselves. When your dog is easier on the leash, you want to do more things together. 


manners: be polite in social situations

There are 4 Manners Agreements in shamanic dog training. Noise manners, play manners, food manners and people manners. Plus the bonus manners: other dogs.  Teach your dog to handle more situations with manners.  


STOP! ON COMMAND

Your dog will learn to freeze in place when you say the word. The safety and trust this creates can be a game changer. It is a simple tool that dogs learn very quickly and easily. 


DON'T LEAVE THE HOUSE OR YARD OR VEHICLE WITHOUT PERMISSION

Your dog remains inside the house or yard or vehicle until you check the coast is clear and give the okay. It means more safety and freedom during everyday moments. Your dog can be included and trusted in more circumstances.

This is Duma

“We had a lot of challenges before the class with leash pulling, overly-excited encounters with other dogs (ie. Duma screaming) and sometimes avoiding bringing Duma out because of the potentially stressful situations.

Since then, all of these things have improved. We still experience some pulling on the leash and definitely some Duma screams. I think the thing that’s changed the most is my approach to those situations. I feel like I can meet her where she’s at more instead of getting upset.

I think there’s still definitely work to do, but I’m not attached to perfection anymore. I’m realizing that these things take time and commitment. Duma has improved a lot in many areas and I would love to do more work with her.”~ Kimberly L (British Columbia, Canada)

This is Shanti

“My lil gal and I were dealing with how to best “train” her overactive reactivity and impulsivity.

The best realization was that it’s not about training these behaviors out of her it’s about she and I working in tandem to support her ability and mine to create a calm state for each other. It’s also not about limiting her experiences until she’s “trained” but about being open to creating opportunity for more growth through broadening her experiences.

This work was different in that other professionals kept emphasizing the sit, down, heel etc or muzzle use but through this work I realize those are management tools not tools that always promote growth. The other aspect is the encouragement to realize that every dog should have the opportunity to enjoy varied experiences with as much freedom as possible with safeguards if needed.

This course was a fabulous reminder of the partnership we can have with our animal companions and that this work is not about managing behavior but about holding space so we are learning our own deep lessons as we help our animal companions learn to navigate our human world.

I would highly recommend this course! I would encourage anyone considering the course to be open to learn and grow in their role as a human companion.”

This is Trooper

“Trooper is a new addition to our family and he was stressed. We needed help to learn him and his cues and how to make him more comfortable. Plus he has some challenging behaviour – barking, nipping, anxiety, over reactivity.

Learning his signals was key. And us being receptive to those signals has given him better ones! He shows many signs of being overwhelmed and stressed. And he doesn’t think when in this state. Getting him distracted, calmer and allowing him to do his own calming has worked well. Also giving him the opportunity to learn boundaries. He is a smart little guy!
 
We didn’t {try other training before] but I had heard that he didn’t respond at all well to being dominated. He will fight it and it perpetuates his fears. So understanding him has been a better approach.

We have modified how we work with him. We respect his space and communicate with him a lot. Brainstorming with the group helped with ideas for his unique issues. He is quite good on a leash and loves the long line when we can get out for more space. We have built trust and he calms down much quicker than before.

If you want to know your dog and really bring them in to your family, plus give them an enriched life where all the family can be happy together, then Shamanic training is an awesome way to work with your pet. You will also help your pet to cope with their emotions and learn to respect the family rules. “

Meet Tamryn Fudge

Tamryn Fudge is the founder and teacher of shamanic dog training. She incorporates animal communication and shamanic principles with 25 years of dog training.

I've spent my lifetime getting closer to dogs. I've explored almost everything you can do with a dog. From agility to flyball and tracking. Therapy dog work and volunteer dog walking at shelters. Foster caring and pet sitting. My goal was to spend as much time as possible with dogs. 


I owned 2 dog daycares and ran group classes for over a decade. I have always specialized in aggression and behaviour problems, offering private sessions to clients who need help with challenges. 


I added animal communication and shamanic principles as I learned more about the depths of our connection with animals and nature. I love knowing that we are a part of creation and our dogs are our brothers and sisters. 


These are the principles I love to share the most - that our dogs are our universal family. The more I learn about them, the less I want to boss them around. The more I want to hear what they have to say and learn their wisdom and gifts.

This is Ruedi

"I found it difficult to find the right approach to deal with Ruedi’s constant pulling on a leash, barking at me when he didn’t get his way, jumping up on the bed while trying to make it, and pushing me down the stairs to be first, as just a few examples of my growing rambunctious canine teenager’s frustrating behaviours.

Shamanic Dog Training and in particular the online program has been a game-changer for us. Tamryn’s intelligent, experienced, compassionate approach to building a relationship with our dogs focusses on essential principles and a few simple tools to create a mutually cooperative lifestyle that is not only loving, but respectful and inclusive. Ruedi and I are having so much fun together now, with minimal frustration.

I wasn’t sure how effective online dog training was going to be for someone in a different province without in-person help. But my initial concerns were unwarranted. Tamryn has prepared a well-organized and comprehensive program online that can work for anyone anywhere.

It includes power point slides to explain the concepts, video examples, tutorials, ample live discussion with other class members, practise sessions, reviews, dedicated Q & A sessions. resources to helpful equipment. etc. and more. Each class builds on the last session so as not to get overwhelmed.

And online access to all of the above is available to me whenever I need a review, along with continual support from all the participants as we post comments, questions and videos of our progress.

I can’t thank Tamryn enough for helping me to help Ruedi grow and become the best that we can be together as a family with Shamanic Dog Training!"

Is live participation required?

You will get the most out of class if you attend the live classes. So will we. We all benefit when you are there to contribute your presence and your unique way of seeing things. However, if you are unable to attend a class (sigh – we will miss you!) a replay of the session will be available in your online course platform area.

What if I have to miss a class?

First of all – we will miss you if you aren’t there with us in class! But if it cannot be avoided, please let your instructor know (Tamryn) that you will not be joining the live class. So she doesn’t worry that you are trying to get onto the call and having trouble accessing. Then you will be able to watch the replay and catch up with what was covered and taught and discussed among the class group.

Do I need any special hardware or software?

To view and participate in the live classes, you will need a computer, up-to-date internet browser, and a high speed internet connection. You will also need a webcam and microphone (usually already built in to your device).

What if I have questions?

There are several ways to present your questions and get them answered:

Publicly:
- Ask during a live class
- Post a question in the activity feed of the private online community – not only will your instructor Tamryn answer the question, but your fellow participants can offer support as well.

Privately:
- Send Tamryn an email at tamryn@theshamanicdogtrainer.com
- Send Tamryn a private message from within the private online community

NOTE: you will have access to private strategy sessions, shamanic readings and shamanic healings for your dog from within the course.

How will I access the class replays, additional tutorials and online community?

There is a private online course platform that you will have lifetime access to through your own user ID and password. When you register for the course, all the details will be provided and you can create your own account to access everything anytime you need.

Depending on my global location, how can I tell what time the live session will be?

The classes are listed in the Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). If you are not in this time zone, please visit timeanddate.com to see what this time is converted to in your local time zone.

The most important thing I got from the class was the whole new mind set of interacting with Sophie. Intrinsic learning for Sophie.
The five freedoms and the goals how to get there with Sophie.”
