This is Duncan who works at Border Village Roadhouse.πŸ˜€ β€’ We stayed there on our way to South Australia and chatted to Duncan and the other staff. β€’ Just being polite and friendly which is the way it should be, right?πŸ˜‰ β€’ On our way home to Western Australia, we stayed at Border Village Roadhouse again.πŸ˜€ β€’ Duncan remembered us and sat with us while our meals were being prepared.🍜🍝🍲πŸ₯— We chatted πŸ—£πŸ—£πŸ—£ away about our fun time away and that both our young friend Tilly and I were both a year older for the second visit (we both had our birthdays while we were away). πŸ˜€πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ β€’ Next thing I know Duncan disappears and gets us two birthday girls a cake. 🍰 β€’ What a lovely gesture. πŸ‘ Something little which left a great impression in our eyes about the kindness of people. πŸ™ β€’ It put a smile on our face and left us feeling pretty special that someone thought enough about us.πŸ€— β€’ I'll be sharing more posts not only about dog behaviour 🐢 but also about people behaviourπŸ‘© as it's SO IMPORTANT in our interactions with others and the effect that the behaviour of others can have on our well being.πŸ‘Œ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #bordervillage #goodservice #goodserviceπŸ‘ #goodserviceπŸ‘πŸ» #customerservice #nicepeople #kindpeople #southaustralia #westernaustralia #travellingacrossaustralia #nullabor #nullaborplain #kathykopellismcleod #travellingwithdogs #travellingaustralia #travellingaustraliawithdogs #goodtimeswithgoodpeople #goodpeoplegoodvibes #dogsarenicerthanpeople #kindpeoplearethebest #kindness #kindhumans #humankindness #perth #perthwa #perthpeople #perthisok #perthrocks #perthbusinesswoman #perthbusinesschicks

I'm back!!! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹... For those folks that didn't know, I was away racing my dogs 🐺🐺🐺 for our National's held in South Australia.πŸ˜€πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ β€’ Thanks to all the people who followed my adventures on my story β˜οΈπŸ‘† and for all your fun and uplifting comments.πŸ˜€ β€’ How Australian is this photo?πŸ˜€πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί β€’ I felt like you came away with me on my trip with our conversations that we've had over the last week.πŸ˜†πŸ€— β€’ It was great to let my hair down (well I have short hair and it was covered by a beanie most of the time because it was cold but you get the ideaπŸ˜‚πŸ€£) and unwind while I was away. β€’ I've got heaps of posts to share with you which I'm looking forward to doing so in the coming days. β€’ It felt rather weird not posting regularly on Instagram so while I had an absolute blast away, I'm happy that I'm back.πŸ˜€πŸ˜˜πŸ€— β€’ Wishing you a happy day!!!πŸ˜€ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #holidayingwithdogs #travellingwithfriends #travellingwithdogs #travellingwithdog #dogsofsouthaustralia #downsouth #aussiecamping #campingwithdogs #campingwithdog #campingwithdogs🐾 #friends #friendships #friendship #friend #dogperth #dogsperth #dogsdownsouth #dogcompanionship #dogfriends #dogfriend #dogfriendshipforever #dogracing #perth #perthlife #walife #wa #walifestyle #walk #exercisewithdogs #love

Dog behaviour tip!!! ... 🐢 Having a sound knowledge of dog behaviour provides insight into possible ways to resolve a problem. πŸ™‚ β€’ The more any behaviour modification program parallels the way animals of the same species normally would resolve similar problems, the more natural the solution. πŸ‘ β€’ The more natural the solution, the more readily (by and large) the animal can comprehend what is wanted and respond accordingly. πŸ™‚πŸ‘ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogtrainersperth #perthdogtrainers #dogbehaviourproblemsperth #kathykopellismcleod #perthdogs #perthdog #dogsofperth #perthbusinesschicks #smallbusinessperth #dogbehaviourperth #perthdogbehaviour #perthdogs #dogsofperth #perthgirlboss #perthgirlbosses #veterinarytechnician #perthbusiness #perthbusinesses #girlbossesau #perthsmallbusinesses #veterinary #smallbusinessownerΒ  #vetstudent #smallbusinessloveΒ  #instagrammarketingΒ  #perthvets #instabusiness #smallbusiness

One of the most wonderful pleasures and one that's too often overlooked, is the pleasure of giving well deserved praise. πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ€›πŸ€œ β€’ Sometimes we don't get the praise we deserve and you can feel like your good deeds aren't recognised. 😢 β€’ It can be a big source of happiness to both the giver and the receiver. 🀩 β€’ Look how happy your dogs πŸ•πŸ© are when you praise them. β€πŸ€— It strengthens the very behaviours you want to see more of and they give you more of what you want more often.πŸ‘ β€’ Something worthwhile considering and putting into action. It can make a world of difference to someone including you. πŸ˜€πŸ€³ β€’ I've got a race on this weekend so check out my story β˜οΈπŸ‘† for updates. β€’ Happy weekend lovely people.πŸ˜€πŸ˜ŠπŸ€— β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #perthwa #perthgram #PerthSmallBusiness #perthisokay #perthistheplace #perthcity #perthbusinesswoman #myperth #perthismyhome #perthist #perthishome #perth #perthpeople #happyperthday #happyperthlife #happyperthπŸ’• #perthisgettingroovy #perthrocks #kathykopellismcleod #businessminded #kindpeople #positiveminded #positivemindedpeople #positivemindedness #benicetoyourself #kindpeoplearemykindofpeople #bekindtoeachother #dogtrainingperth #benice #businesssuccesstips

This week I was invited by the lovely team at Champion Lake Vet Centre to talk dogs ... as I do. πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜† β€’ My services were called upon to go through safe handling techniques when dealing with challenging individuals ... not people, 😝 but their dogs. 😁 β€’ We had some happy canines to help with the demonstrations and it always impresses me how staff like the dedicated individuals @championlakevet are keen to tweak their skills and help make their patients time at the clinic as comfortable and positive as they possibly can.πŸ‘ β€’ This of course leads to happier owners so it's a win- win situation. We all want good experiences in life and our dogs are no different.πŸ‘Œ β€’ If you're in Camillo or surrounding areas and are looking for a great vet clinic to take your pet to, make sure you check out this dedicated, caring and experienced team. 😊 β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogtrainersperth #perthdogtrainers #dogbehaviourproblemsperth #kathykopellismcleod #perthdogs #perthdog #dogsofperth #perthbusinesschicks #smallbusinessperth #dogbehaviourperth #perthdogbehaviour #perthdogs #dogsofperth #perthgirlboss #perthgirlbosses #veterinarytechnician #perthbusiness #perthbusinesses #girlbossesau #perthsmallbusinesses #veterinary #smallbusinessownerΒ  #vetstudent #smallbusinessloveΒ  #instagrammarketingΒ  #perthvets #instabusiness #smallbusiness

When I began my journey in dog behaviour many years ago now, I was fascinated with how incredible canine communication and dog psychology are, as I still am now. πŸ§ πŸ‘„ β€’ There's nothing more educational than watching your own dogs communicate with other resident dogs, 🐢🐢 unfamiliar dogs πŸΆπŸ•πŸ©and people. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦ Even inanimate objects for that matter. πŸŒ‚πŸ›’πŸ β€’ As my awareness πŸ‘πŸ‘ of dog behaviour and their unique language grew, the relationships between my clients and their dogs improved. πŸ™πŸ™Œ β€’ By understanding what dogs need emotionally, physically and psychologically, it enriches not only your life but the lives of your beloved dogs. πŸ‘β€ β€’ If you're keen to learn more about understanding your dog on a deeper level, check out my most popular sought after book 'Watch My Manners'. Check out my website β˜οΈπŸ‘† in bio to find out more. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogtrainersperth #perthdogtrainers #dogbehaviourproblemsperth #kathykopellismcleod #perthdogs #perthdog #dogsofperth #perthbusinesschicks #smallbusinessperth #dogbehaviourperth #perthdogbehaviour #perthdogs #dogsofperth #perthgirlboss #perthgirlbosses #veterinarytechnician #perthbusiness #perthbusinesses #girlbossesau #perthsmallbusinesses #veterinary #smallbusinessownerΒ  #vetstudent #smallbusinessloveΒ  #instagrammarketingΒ  #perthvets #instabusiness #smallbusiness

I posted about Marley, the beautiful German Shepherd some weeks ago and today I have an update. But first, here's a little bit of history...... β€’ Marley had been attacked πŸ˜”πŸ˜žπŸ˜Ÿ by an off lead dog when she was an adolescent, in addition to other similar incidents, understandably leaving both Marley and Gayle @chakraharmonyreikiperth apprehensive when in close presence of unfamiliar dogs. β€’ Since these negative episodes, the only dog friend Marley has is her other housemate. πŸ€— Marley is now 3 years old. β€’ During our first behaviour session, Marley did fantastic with my dogs. Marley not only accepted my dogs but to top it off she engaged them in play and displayed very polite sociability towards them. β€’ No defensive behaviour, no stress signs, no aggression. Just a beautiful natured dog whose confidence bounced back with enthusiasm. This was Marley's first positive interactions since her attack. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ β€’ With such acceptable sociability our next session was off lead. πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ So, how did the session go I hear you ask? ... Brilliant!!! β€’ Marley ran beautifully with my dogs and it was yet another breakthrough for Marley. So happy for Gayle and dear Marley. Onwards and upwards to you both!!! πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ€©πŸ€— β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #perthdogs #dogsofperth #perthpuppers #puppersofperth #puppersofperthwa #perthdogsofinstagram #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogtrainersperth #germanshepherdsofperth #perthgermanshepherds #kathykopellismcleod #gsdofperth #perthgsd #perthdogtrainers #perthdogbehaviourist #perthdogtrainer #dogaggression #dogreactivity #reactivedogs #scareddog #anxiousdogs #anxiousdogsofinstagram #perth #perthlife #perthiscool #perthwa #perthdog #perthdogdaycare #perthdoglife

Dog behaviour tip!!! 🐢 ... Dog owners who recognize that their dog's behaviour, though inappropriate and unacceptable, is also normal given their particular environment, the context and relationship, gain a big psychological advantage over those who believe their dog is neurotic or otherwise flawed when in fact they're normal. β€’ Client confidence in their dog 🐩 as well as themselves πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ plays a vital role in successfully resolving any behaviour problems. πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ β€’ Check out my website in my bio β˜οΈπŸ‘† to see how I can help you with your dog.πŸ•πŸ© β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogtrainerperth #perthdogtrainer #perthdogtrainers #dogtrainersperth #dogbehaviourperth #perthdogbehaviour #dogbehaviouristperth #perthdogbehaviourist #perthdogwhisperer #dogwhispererperth #perthbossladies #smperth #perthvets #girlbossau #mindfulbiz #kathykopellismcleod #perth #perthnow #perthdogs #dogsofperth #perthpuppers #perthisokay #perthbusinesschicks #perthwomen #perthwomeninsmallbusiness #perthwomeninbusiness #smallbusinesswomen #businesschicksau
