|About||Official facebook of world renown canine behaviorist and life coach Ben Dunham. Communicate - Balance - Motivate|
Even though I began to work with dogs in the late 90s due to being born into a home with lots of dogs, it wasn’t until I adopted Boss in 2009 that I discovered the huge need for clarity and balance in dog world. After witnessing the constant miscommunication and reinforcement of undesired behavior, seeing it become the normal and more people and dogs getting hurt and euthanized, I knew I owed it to the world to help. I first started with a dog walking business that led to private lessons because every client asked me how their dog is so balanced with me. I found out long ago that traditional methods of training had little effect on clients and their dog’s behavioral issues. To communicate to clients how to become balanced and having them receive the answers in the way they needed to was my biggest hurdle. With the help of several mentors over the years, some in fields that had nothing to do with animals, I realized that I already had the answers. It clearly was not a dog issue, but the lack of communication.
Since my early 20’s, I have spent years studying psychology, spiritual and religious cultures, relationships, seduction and attraction. I have worked as a professional dating coach which most of the time lead me to become a life coach due to the rule, “To have a successful relationship, short or long term, you have to be right with yourself and know your intentions”. I quickly learned you cannot successfully give someone techniques without making them technical first. I have worked with top professionals in marketing, human psychology, dog psychology, athletes, motivational speakers, hedge fund managers and life coaches. One mentor I had after I started my own business was a hedge fund owner, investor and philanthropist. He subtly gave me answers that have taken him a number of years to figure out through trial and errors and having his own mentor guide him along as well.
