Help! My Dog’s Scared of Fireworks, Toni Shelbourne


Wednesday, 04 October 2017, Woking

It’s a cold autumn evening: the curtains are drawn, the volume on the television is turned up loud and you’ve just turned down another social engagement. Sound familiar? If so, then it’s probably because you own a dog that is scared of fireworks.

This talk is for you if you are a dog owner struggling to help your petrified dog, or a dog professional working with a client, wanting new ideas on managing the problem or even getting dogs over this phobia. Re-discover some of the simple and practical things and learn some amazing new tools.

A limited number of tickets are available at a discounted price!

Toni Shelbourne has worked with domesticated and wild canids since 1989. After a long and successful career with the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, she started her own business as a Tellington TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner. She is now one of the highest qualified Practitioners in the UK. In 2001 her skills in TTouch took Toni to the UK Wolf Conservation Trust were she meet a pack of socialised wolves. She went on to work with them for over a decade as a Senior Wolf Handler and Education Officer for the organisation. Through observing the wolves she has a unique insight into their behaviour. This led to her questioning the ingrained ideas about the alpha theory with dogs, ideas that were often in conflict with her own knowledge and observations. Today she advises wolf organisations and zoos on wolf behaviour and management.

Toni teaches all over the UK and abroad, works with clients one-to-one, runs workshops and writes books. Help! My Dog’s Scared of Fireworks the first of several Help! My Dog books, co-authored with Karen Bush.
