WE HEAR YOU
You'd call us up yourselves if you could. You’re having a rough time. Being a pet dog these days isn't all rainbows & unicorns. Sure, you love your people to the moon & back. And you appreciate all the yummy, fun, & comfy things they do for you.
But, you often don’t understand what’s going on, & how everything is supposed to work. You have urges to do things that even you don’t understand. You don’t know how to tell your family how you feel. You need a professional who really understands, & can help. Well, relax little buddy. That’s exactly what we’re here for. Welcome to the evolution of dog behavior services, where you matter too. Welcome to Family Dog Mediation®.
WE HEAR YOU
You need real help with your dog. You've come to the right place to find it. It’s not just you. You don't have a bad dog, & you're not a bad dog trainer. You just can't reach him because you haven't had the whole story.
There’s a growing, serious fundamental problem facing pet dogs & their people in the modern world – a complicated truth that no one really talks about. Many “behavior problems” are just symptoms of this greater issue. You must discover and address why behavior is happening before you can ask how to change it, because you can’t solve a problem that you don’t understand. You’re ready to go beyond dog training and find the whole truth. You’re ready to really meet your dog. We’re ready to help you come together around new interventions, understandings, & agreements in the relationship – for everyone’s sake. Welcome to Family Dog Mediation®.
WE HEAR YOU
You're ready—to go BEYOND dog training. You're a pro. You already know a bit about ``how`` to teach dogs & people. But sometimes you just can't shake the sense that you're missing some critical pieces of the puzzle— like ``why`` so many behaviors are happening in the first place.
We have been taught to view dog behavior all wrong – as something it is our job to change or “fix”. Most of us trainers, with our emphasis on “how” to change behavior, are not getting the depth of meaningful resolution for the dogs & families we serve that they so desperately need—because we never actually get to the source of the problems that those symptom behaviors are reflecting. You want to be the very best for dogs and people, & you know you need to find those missing keys to do it. Well, get ready to take your professional journey to the next level, because you finally found them. Fill in the gaps, connect the dots, & give yourself & the dog families you serve the comprehensive understandings & interventions that make the difference. Kim Brophey has garnered international attention in the industry for bringing applied ethology to the table, & wants you to pull up a seat & discover what you’ve been missing. Welcome to the new conversation in the pet dog industry. Welcome to a whole new world for dog pros. We’ve got the L.E.G.S. ® to get you there. Let’s evolve together.
