I suspect you have come here, to the “about Tamryn Fudge” page, to see exactly what I am all about. These ideas I am sharing – like shamanic dog training – are a little unusual, I admit. Talking about dogs’ awareness and consciousness and speaking about sacred partnerships (you didn’t miss that bit, did you?) are not what you might expect to find at a dog training website.
So, who is this lady, you might wonder. Is she a little off her rocker? Is she a little (or a lot) delusional? Does she have any idea what she is talking about? Any credentials at all?
I would be doing the same thing, in your position. Especially if you are new to shamanic dog training, which most of us are. It is not something you come across every day, although I bet it feels really true to you at some level – like something you always knew was true, but have never articulated because you were not sure it is the “right”, “correct”, “okay” or “normal” way to do things.
Let me tell you a little about myself, so that you can determine where you stand on this whole shamanic dog training thing and the woman who is bringing these ideas forward.
First, I can tell you that I was just as suspicious as you may be upon hearing these ideas for the first time. For me, it was when I heard a woman speak about telepathically communicating with her dog.Read More... Read Less
How would I describe myself?
I am honest, hard-working, organized and good with people. (Sounds like I am applying for a job? I am, in a way – I am applying for the job of being your dog trainer). I am gentle, analytical and have good communication skills. I am well-rounded; being equal parts brain, heart and gut.Read More... Read Less
My work with dogs
I spent over 5 years apprenticing with dog behaviour experts Kathy and Gary Gibson – who helped me understand that you cannot learn dog training at any deep level by completing short courses intended to give you the mechanics of dog training, but not the truth of dog training. I shadowed them, assisted them and soaked in their combined 40 years of experience so that I could also tune into dogs at the level they were capable of.Read More... Read Less
What about shamanism?
The shamanism part of the puzzle – I will describe that one last. I came across shamanism when I was looking for someone to help me with the anxiety I had developed after years of living in and out of my mother’s mental health crisis cycles. While living with so much volatility was instrumental in shaping my intuition, it was also instrumental in creating an ongoing sense of instability inside of me.Read More... Read Less
