WHO IS?...Dawn Welsh is the UK Dog Whisperer, a humble yet talented lady, with a passion to prove that no dog is beyond rehabilitation. Dawn has, single handed, saved 1000's of dogs from being re-homed (or even euthanised!) by desperate owners, by performing seemingly miraculous transformations, working with the dogs and turning them into well behaved, well spirited, true K9 companions!
Dawn was born with a gift, a gift to understand and communicate with a dog in it's own language. She does not work in obedience, use invasive methods, or demand the dog's attention - there is no need. Dawn has not been to University to study and achieve a certificate, her skills are honed from 40 years of real life close quarters experience. A prodigious case, one may argue, in which Dawn appears to have come to Earth, simply to fulfil this role!WHY?...
Dawn's passion for dogs is ever enduring, having very recently recovered from a brain operation, in which she only had a 1 in 3 chance of survival, she is already embarking upon her next big plan to save many more thousands of dogs, and educate the public on sensible dog practices. Dawn has put aside her own turmoil, and at a time the majority of us would be convalescing, Dawn has already been out in force, tackling some of the UK's most challenging dog behaviour cases! Not only this, but Dawn has done this at her own expense.
Dawn's next goal is to tour the UK, to achieve a myriad of goals - these include:
· Supporting local charities, by visiting local pet superstores & large events, and offering on the spot rehabilitation. Recipients are encouraged to offer donations to the charity supported on that day. Dawn's experience and renown helps entice customers/visitors to the events/shops themselves, increasing business & leaving visitors with a lasting, happy, oft very positively emotive, memory of their day.
· Visiting dog shelters and re homing centres across the UK, advising staff of best practice, to help achieve faster results and turn around in re homing or rehabilitating dogs. Also providing essential advice to pass on to new owners on how to approach dog ownership. From the second they meet at the Kennels, to the first moments in their new home. All of these tips will help assure a successful transition for dog/owner/shelter giving the maximum chance of building a lasting fruitful, and enjoyable relationship between a dog & it's potential new family.
· Finding the most difficult dogs across the Country whom have essentially been given up on. Owners are repeatedly advised by trainers/vets etc that euthanasia is the only option available - this happens all too frequently! Dawn has visited many owners in this situation, and within a couple of hours, if not MINUTES at times, creates instant change in their so-called aggressive/misbehaving "hopeless" hound. The results of which are often floods of tears, followed by relief, a sense of guilt at "what if" they'd followed the other advice! This inevitably, and deservedly, leads to masses of glowing testimonials.
The reasons and ambitions listed were the stimulus behind my personally getting involved in her magnificent project. This and her ability to instantly calm the bounciest most energetic puppy I have ever encountered... my own. So whilst also serving as an informative introduction into Dawn and her ambitions, to give you food for thought on how you may like to get involved, it is also a genuine & heartfelt testimonial, as I never personally get involved with any project I do not believe in with absolutely certainty and conviction!If you are a dog or animal lover like I am, I know you will feel the same.
