Enhance your dog training with animal communication

We first encountered animal communication when we had reached the end of our dog training with our Border Collie Cross Badger. We reached a point when everyday dog training no longer worked with her, this is her story. I was a normal everyday person and myself and my husband decided that it would be nice to have a puppy to share our life! So armed with various dog training manuals we read and read and read until we were prepared for when puppy arrived.

We put everything we had learned into practice from day 1 and wow was she responsive or were we just that good at it?! She picked up all the usual commands with total ease, this was going to be a breeze.

Sadly not long after this, this all changed, this cute little responsive puppy had started showing her teeth and growling if we went near anything she considered hers. The dog training went out of the window.

Eventually she bit me. This was bad enough but she didn't stop there. Her growling, snapping and snarling was so unpredictable she started doing the same thing to my husband and any visitors to the house or in fact if we were visitors in their house. She would spend hours in her bed just staring at us, she guarded her toys, food, water absolutely anything even a piece of paper What had we done so wrong, was she trying to tell us something?

Life became very limited to say the least. We could not trust her in any situation any more and the invitations to friends and families with the dogs dwindled to nothing, too many people were understandably now frightened of her. No-one to look after her so that we could have a holiday, days out were limited to a few hours. We were at a total loss as to what to, we could no longer get through to her and we felt she was out of control I guess we all were by this time.

Dog trainer after dog trainer, behaviourist after behaviourist, they all came and went with their various techniques and methods to overcome her problems - nothing worked at all and at 1 year old she was now a fully grown dog in size. This feeling of hopelessness was totally suffocating, we had no idea what to do or where to turn to next.

Life by now was incredibly stressful. We couldn't carry on living like this, was she going to bite me today? Was she ever going to change? Is this just the way it is always going to be? Can we cope? We just wished we could understand her we knew that one day something serious would happen and then it would all be too late. Re-homing was out of the question as she would never actually leave the rescue centre as she had already displayed aggression. It had been suggested to us that she should be put too sleep for her own good was it time to make that decision?

Around this time, a friend had consulted an Animal Communicator and had had some very good results with her own dogs. Nothing else had worked to this point but we decided to contact an Animal Communicator in one last ditch attempt.

Desperate for our questions to be answered we contacted the recommended Animal Communicator - James French and waited for the insight and understanding of our dog that we so craved.

Well, what can I say, simply life changing for all of us! This may seem like I have jumped rather quickly to a happy ending but this is quite simply what happened! James gave us the insight we so desperately needed and the understanding that was required to move forward. He told us what she needed and quite frankly what she did not need!

Our dog was NOT aggressive! Her behaviour certainly appeared that way but the truth of the matter was that her digestive system did not work as it should resulting in her being in constant pain - no wonder she was body sensitive and didn't like being touched!

She also had extreme anxiety whilst being very dominant - a very dangerous combination and for this part we learned that she was my mirror after 3 very long years with Badger I was practically a nervous wreck and was making her so. We had been caught in a vicious circle.

To cut a long story short, we changed her food to a raw food diet and a lot of the undesired behaviour vanished within a few weeks - AMAZING! I then had to change my own behaviours to enable Badger to change hers.

The first thing to go was my very stressful job, the second change was actually the realisation that I didn't actually have any 'me' time at all. My idea of relaxing was to catch up on the ironing whilst watching the TV. The most important decision was deciding that I wanted to train to be an Animal Communicator too, I just had to get out there and help others who had suffered like us.

If our own dog had been placed in rescue she would not have been re-homed or worse still she would have been put to sleep. How many dog owners out there were suffering like we had? How many dogs were dumped at rescue centres never to be re-homed or put to sleep simply because they do not have a voice and cannot be heard?

I am now a very proud fully qualified Animal Communicator! I fulfil my dream everyday of helping humans and their animals share a rewarding and lifelong friendship and I have Badger to thank for this. Dog training on it's own did not work for us however combining Animal Communication and Dog Training together wow, what a powerful combination!
