A ZEN DOG IS A HAPPY DOG

Zen dogs offers pet parents across Pembrokeshire a uniquely effective approach to dog training, based entirely on reward play.  By moving away from the traditional methods of 'treat bribery', and completely avoiding any reliance on the canine fear response, Zen training results in well balanced, well behaved, happy and fulfilled dogs!

YOUR ROLE IN THE RELATIONSHIP IS PARTNER. . .  NOT DICTATOR

Please take a few minutes to browse through this site and discover much more about Zen dogs' training techniques, ethos and processes.

A PERSONAL WELCOME FROM NATALIE BANNISTER

"Thank you for taking the time to visit my website!  I've tried to make the content as informative, interesting and comprehensive as possible.

"Humans have enjoyed a symbiotic (or mutually beneficial) relationship with dogs that began, according to recent studies, as much as 40,000 years ago!

"Having worked intimately with dogs for most of my adult life I understand very well the huge joy and enrichment that such a relationship can bring. . .  so I launched Zen Dogs to help more people transform the understanding that they, and their families, can share with our closest companion species."
