As from March 2016 I have had to stop working due to being diagnosed with cancer ~ I am currently undergoing treatment and plan to be back to work in the autumn ~ My dear dogs are a wonderful inspiration to keep learning studying and training albeit in a different way. I look forward to coming back stronger than ever in the fall. Look out for my blog documenting the journey Star and I seem to be embarking on.
Welcome to “Come to Heal”. My name is Shona Moon. I have enjoyed a life long love affair with that marvellous creature that is the dog.
Working with rescue dogs first got me interested in dog behaviour. I went to Obedience Classes where traditional methods of dog training were used. I felt uncomfortable – So I decided to learn more and studied and gained a Certificate of Advanced Canine Communication.
The major turning point for me has been discovering , learning and working with the amazing technique of Tellington TTouch.
This is a wonderful practical way in which everyone can help their dog relax and improve their mental physical and emotional well being ~ in short you enable your dog to be the best that they can be.
I also regularly update my knowledge by attending seminars workshops and courses in dog behaviour and assist at TTouch trainings with my TTouch instructors Robyn Hood Sarah Fisher & Marie Miller.
In 2013 my dog Barney Moon and I attended a wonderful Scent workshop with Nando Brown~ this got us both hooked on Scentwork.
Last year I had the privilege of meeting and attending a scentwork workshop with the amazing Pam Mackinnon of Talking Dogs Scentwork ~ both Barney and I are in the midst of learning and working further with Pam to train further with scentwork ~ we both love it and Barney Moon is a natural!!!
In 2014 I attended workshops with Pauline Jackson and qualified in Animal Communication with Maureen Rolls.
I do one to one consultations in TTouch and behaviour in the comfort and security of your home as well as outside socialisation with my dog Barney Moon.
I also run TTouch workshops throughout the year ~ see News and Events.
If you belong to a training club, veterinary surgery or shelter I am available for TTouch talks and workshops.
It takes a lot of courage to ask for help with your dog. My emphasis is on working with you and your dog.
My aim is to provide a holistic way in which to work and communicate with your dog.
There is no force or shouting ~I work with your dog’s nature and freewill.
I work closely with my local branch of The Labrador Rescue Trust.
Currently I have two Yellow Labradors Barney Moon who is four years old and Star who has just turned five months old. Barney Moon has been with me for nearly two years~ I met him through my work with Labrador Rescue. He is an Old Soul in so many ways and is also my work buddy helping dogs to relax and overcome their fears. Lyra and Seamus my dogs who have now crossed the rainbow bridge have all helped me to do what I do today ~ please see their stories in TRIBUTES
Provided you are prepared to be consistent and work with me and your dog you will see results,
So…if you feel something is missing with you and your dog give me a call …
Come and share the magic!
