The Loved Dog Services
Tamar Geller is a New York Times bestselling author of the dog training book & as OPRAH says “A Life Coach for Dogs and their People”. Known for her innovative methods, enthusiasm, and celebrity clients like Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, John Stewart, Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi, Larry King, Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough, Charlize Thereon, Natalie Portman, & of course OPRAH, Tamar has transformed lives and impacted relationships not only for dogs but also of people. The Loved Dog method that Tamar created 25 yrs ago is based on the knowledge she acquired as an intelligence officer in the Israeli Special Forces and from the wisdom of nature during the time she spent observing wolves in the wild. Understanding dog training firsthand the challenges of being a veteran Tamar has created a nonprofit program Operation Heroes & Hounds that measurably empowers the lives of veterans and shelter dogs.
Inspired by Tamar’s observations of a wild wolf pack in their natural habitat, The Loved Dog™ method builds a relationship based on games, clear communication, mutual respect, and fun. Rejecting the painful prong collars and choke chains that have been common tools of dog trainers for decades, Tamar educates with kindness. With The Loved Dog™ method, the dog, who wants to be play-trained by you, becomes a well-mannered and loved member of the family. Tamar has helped many people achieve an amazing relationship with their four-legged family members. This is the only training method endorsed by The Humane Society of the United States.
“Dogs are amazingly sensitive and intuitive creatures, “Tamar says. If you use stress-free, game-based coaching (such as what we use with children) you will empower them to be all that they can be and in return not only will your dog be devoted to you but he will be your raving fan.
