Hello, I'm Elise and here is my story.
Throughout my life I have owned nervous and reactive dogs but it was my current dog, Mylo Anubis who set me on my path to becoming a dog specialist. He was like a wild beast when I rescued him and I was determined to understand and train him. Like many owners, I made mistakes along the way but today Mylo is a much calmer and happy dog and our bond is so strong it amazes me. Through training Mylo I was saved, he made me realise my dream of working with dogs. I quit my job as a teacher and have never looked back.
I know how you must feel about your dog, as I have felt it too. I was scared to let Mylo off the lead for the first time, I felt alone and isolated, feeling like a bad owner as I couldn't control my dog. I was frustrated that he wasn't learning quick enough or had no friends. With all my heart I love him and would have put up with poor behaviour just because he is family. But I was determined to improve his quality of life, and mine! This is why I set up Canine Company. My goal is to improve the life you have with your dog. Creating a powerful bond, mutual respect and understanding is at the centre of everything I do. I am passionate about building confidence in dogs and owners so that they can continue to enrich each others lives. As it should be!
You do not have to suffer with your dog, pulling your arms off on walks, chewing the furniture or jumping up. Despite how you feel, you are not alone. Help is here and we specialise in providing a confidence building program to get your dog back on track.
To learn more about my story, why not buy my book "Waggy Tails - An Adventure into Dog Walking." It details the struggles I had as a novice owner and the many hilarious escapades I have had as a professional dog walker. Available now on Amazon.
