At Wholesome Canine your dog’s welfare is at the heart of everything we do. Our dog centred approach empowers you with knowledge and tools to bring out the best in your dog and to build a relationship based on a true understanding of their specific needs. Our values of compassion, kindness and empathy are the core of our work and we will never recommend harsh or aversive techniques.
Our approach is based on the teachings and philosophies of Turid Rugaas, internationally renowned Norwegian Dog Behaviour Expert and educator. We look at the dog as a whole rather than simply trying to change or suppress a behaviour. We understand the many factors that play a role in the expression of behaviour—diet, gut health, stress, pain, inappropriate exercise, lack of quality sleep and social contact—and we look at each one in order to build a clear picture of your dog as an individual and how we can best help them.
