Hi, my name is Joanna Meek, like most people I have had my successes and failures with dogs but it was the arrival of our abused rescue dog Astro, a Jack Russell x, in 2002 that led me to seek help as he proceeded to destroy our house!
Our pack was slowly growing with two greyhounds plus Astro, things were getting out of control. I had read Jan Fennell’s book, “The Dog Listener” but had not implemented the method properly but chaos at home meant I had to try harder. So I re-read the book and started to practice the Dog Listening technique on our dogs. I began to see some results with all the dogs but we still had a long way to go.
When Jan came to Australia in 2006, to give the first Foundation Course, I jumped at the chance to learn more. From then on, I was hooked! It was such an amazing revelation that this method was so kind and non confrontational and it really worked!
I travelled to the UK to complete the Advanced Course in Canine Communication early 2007. I was keen to get back to Australia and begin helping as many dog’s and people as I could. I am very fortunate to have found a career that I am truly passionate about and it is so rewarding to be able to help people and their dogs to change their lives forever.
I have spent the last 13 years helping people and dogs and showing them how to live together and over come behaviour problems by working together to understand their dog.
My wish for the future is to help empower people to gain a greater understanding of their dogs and to ultimately lead them to a happier life.
