Canine Behavior Enthusiast, Pet Parent Trainer, DogPack Parent, Canine Diet & Nutrition Consultant

My journey of discovery into the world of canine behaviour started about 12 years ago with my first dog, Caesar Augustus (who also features in my logo) and my determination to give him a life that he deserved. That journey and my thirst for knowledge and observation led me to different schools of thought, methodology and researches, 4 more dogs and many more rescues and fosters all of who became the ones who guided me with their responses and made me the person I am today around dogs.

The Urban Dawg turned from dream into reality five years ago when I decided to share this journey of in-depth study, observation, practical try efforts on streeeties, friends pets and my own wise pack. I learnt so much more as I figured out how to bring them up in an urban world which was not naturally theirs by default.

I started The Urban Dawg with a vision of co-parenting. The aim is to get pet-parents understand their dogs behaviour, mannerisms, likes and dislikes (basically all aspects of their personality) while boarding here.

90% of pets develop behavioral issues at home or on holiday for 2 basic reasons:

  • boredom or lack of mental stimulus, and
  • pet-parents inability to read the signs and respond.

As a practicing canine behaviorist, I seek to identify & understand the dog while they stay with me and find ways to keep them occupied, resulting in a calmer, happier, more confident pet while at home stay.

Then, of course, it’s about educating per-parents with audio-visuals taken here so they can do similar stuff at home. In the process I learn a lot more around dogs and their social behaviour, stress triggers & response to stimuli.

Anecdotes around my case studies from a behaviour, diet and well-being standpoint are what I intend to share and document as my legacy to urban pet parents who wish to do the very best for their dogs.
