Niki Perry offers family dog mediation & behaviour counselling services. Her services include dog and puppy raising support, in person courses and clinics as well as professional-led day school programs for dogs. Based out of Revelstoke BC, but available world-wide virtually, Niki's approach is uniquely integrative and specializing in the resolution of complex canine behaviour and mental health challenges through kindness and a deep understanding of science.
Through masterfully combining elements of applied ethology, behaviour learning theories, cognitive learning theories and neurobiology, with intuitive connection, Niki's guidance is unlike anything else offered in the dog behaviour industry. Her mission is to help animals live their best life by feeling their best through lessons that focus on understanding the genetic, individual, unmet needs, environmental and learning factors that result in canine behaviour.
Niki is committed to fear-free and force-free methods to raise and care for animals. Her approach to working with animals is founded in compassion, connection and cooperation. No punishment, intimidation or pain is ever used or taught in her sessions, classes or clinics. You will not learn how to correct your dog, but you will learn how to listen to them, understand them, meet their fundamental needs, support their development and enjoy your life together.
With 20 years of experience working with dogs in a professional setting, Niki has worked with thousands of families to help them understand their dog better so they can raise them to be calm, content and cooperative. She's a counsellor, teacher, mentor and friend to all who know her and work with her.
