Tamryn Fudge is a gifted dog trainer, animal communicator and shamanic practitioner. Her skill set makes her unusually good at pinpointing the underlying issues troubling a dog. She can navigate complex scenarios and difficult problems with clarity and lightness.
Tamryn has spent her life pursuing a career with dogs. She has experience at every level, in most every capacity. From dog walking at animal shelters at a young age, she quickly progressed to working at animal hospitals, competing in obedience and agility, training in flyball, tracking and therapy dog work. She has been a pet sitter to family dogs and a foster parent to rescue dogs. She has seen dogs from every angle imaginable. She has been unafraid to follow her heart as it leads her deeper and deeper into the truth of dogs and our relationship to them.
Tamryn has had a sense, from a young age, that dogs are more than we think. They have more depth and awareness and intelligence and emotional capacity than we usually give them credit for. She has refused to let go of her childhood impressions that dogs can speak to us, and we to them. She has kept that child-like wonder with every interaction and every dog she meets.
Tamryn carries the faith that dogs are living conscious beings who can learn, who are eager to learn, how to be more independent and functional in their daily lives stranded in the human world. She has pursued methods that help her uncover this truth, even as her colleagues work in opposite directions to her. She is fearless in her searching for more ways of touching dogs and helping them blossom into the intelligent, conscious and aware creatures that she knows they are.
For over 12 years Tamryn handled groups of dogs at her dog daycares - observing, studying, learning and paying attention. She has been a dog trainer for almost 25 years and has been an animal communicator for over 15 years. Her skills are well developed and masterful. In addition to these qualifications, she has been a shamanic practitioner for almost 10 years.
Tamryn has spent her lifetime learning about dogs in order to help them achieve more full lives with their humans. She has helped thousands of dogs and their people find a way to have even more fulfilling lives together, overcome challenges and become better friends than before.
Tamryn is dedicated to helping you and your dog do the same. She is committed and invested in everything she does, and shares her knowledge and experience with gentle authority, laughter and generosity.
