Welcome to the You and Your Dog
shamanic dog training program

Do you leave your dog at home, even though you could take them, because you don't feel like they would be easy to manage when they come with you?

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.”

Here's what you'll learn:

The 5 Life Skills

In Shamanic Dog Training we get ambitious

RECALL

You will feel more confident right away with the emergency recall. Plus more tools like approach, be a beacon and grabber/long line work. 


LEASHWORK

It's easier to include your dog when you know they won't be exhausting on the leash.  Better than "heel", this leashwork is a true game changer.  


MANNERS

Manners make everything better. Be polite with people, don't touch my things. Give your toys back and don't steal and snatch. 


STOP! ON COMMAND

For road and trail safety, the STOP! is a dream come true. When you say the word, your dog freezes in place where they are.


HARD BOUNDARIES

Your dog will know not to leave the house or yard or vehicle without permission. Intrinsic teaching will make this skill something your dog does voluntarily all by themselves - without needing to be told.

Shamanic Dog Training Principles

The Shamanic Dog Training Pyramid

The Shamanic Dog Training Pyramid

You will learn to master the 3 arms to shamanic dog training: 

The Process: Understanding, Connecting & Teaching

The Container: Fluidity, Right Relationship & Unconditional Love

The Tools: Kindness, Showing & Speaking

Dynamic Equilibrium

Dynamic Equilibrium

The amount of support your dog needs from you depends on the situation - something that can even change from moment to moment. Dynamic Equilibrium helps you gauge how and when to best support your dog. 

Mapping Your Dog

Mapping Your Dog

At just a glance you will understand your dog's body language and see their mental and emotional state. Use calming exercises to help your dog process their emotions and move into more calm and peaceful states of being. This supportive understanding creates space and ease. 

Intrinsic Learning

Intrinsic Learning

Intrinsic learning is used in hard boundaries, leashwork and manners lessons. It involves teaching and trusting your dog to make their own decisions. This simple and practical technique introduces an entirely new dimension to your relationship with your dog.

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 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!"

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 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. “

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.”
