1. "But will my dog still protect me?"
This is the question I am asked most. A dog does not have to be disobedient, hyperactive and destructive in order to protect us properly! (No logic in that!)
Yes, of course your dog will still protect you! In fact, even more so. Dogs that bark at, and even bite family members and everyone who visits us are not being protective. (Unless you have dangerous visitors and family members!) Proper protection comes from dog a) being clear headed enough to distinguish between friend and foe; b) our dog being courageous enough to stand up to an intruder, and c) our dogs being loyal toward their family. Naturally! Which are all included in the Dog Training and Dog Whispering Nature's Way courses.
3. "Why don't we see Pam on TV so much any more?"
Pam needs to protect the privacy of her family as well as her own, so she seldom accepts invitations for guest appearances on television. With a website, however, this also works well, as she is still able to help and to be in touch with dog owners around the world.
5."Can Natural Dog Training cure all BEHAVIOUR problems?"
What humans regard as misbehaviour is often a natural activity in the "wrong" place at the "wrong" time. For example, when a dog's adrenalin is running too high, they bark at other dogs. When their adrenalin levels are down, dogs in the wild do not "network" with each other in this way.
It can also be, for example, that our dog not interpreting our words and actions the way we expect him to (dogs are not humans). So by learning Nature's Formula for Obedience, therefore, you learn how dogs actually perceive our actions - and how to can create an environment in which your dog learns to choose appropriate behaviour, rather than avoid punishment through fear, or expect to be bribed. The way dogs in the wild, where unity is strength, naturally cooperate with their leader.
7. "Will my children also be able to learn to Dog Whisper? "
Yes. Natural Dog Training also includes the children. Because it uses communication in place of force, Natural Dog Training can even be used by young children - as can be seen in the Home Movie Before and After Learning Dog Language.
9. "I don't suppose you train cats as well, do you....?"
Yes, Pam corrects problem behaviour in cats on a regular basis. Except she does not call them cats. She calls them Bonsai lions. She finds that cats' social instincts are far more highly developed than people give them credit for. (They just don't want us to know it.) They are very clever, and often team up with "naughty" dogs in a way families would never suspect.
10."What other animals have you trained"
Pam has worked with horses, meercat, monkeys, parrots, wolves, camels, Dingoes, (including her own which she had to rehabilitate), wild dogs. The horses have just been small problems, like refusing to be bridled. Parrots are usually for screeching problems, occasionally for sudden refusal to talk. One meercat that Pam worked with was being chased by the family dog, so she was called in to teach the dog not to chase the meercat. It turned out that the meercat, who was enjoying the sport (as well as being rescued) was the problem! And one of the camels that Pam worked with was aggressive so that no one could ride him. She was due to ride him, and thought it may be a good idea to do therapy on him first!
12. "Are you the same as - "....who's that guy on TV...?"
No - the main difference is - Pam gives away her secrets (and the dogs' - and they have many). She shows you exactly how the change in the dog's behaviour is achieved - and places the power in your hands so that you can achieve the same results. If you do not know as much as Pam does about dog behaviour at the end of the session (and that is a lot!) - you will not be able to maintain your dog's good behaviour after she has left. And if you do - you will be able to communicate with and control all dogs in future.
2. "When is the best time to start Dog Training the Natural Way?"
Pam Whyte sees all dogs from 8 weeks to old age. She has achieved startling results with dogs of 14 years of age. Of course, she prefers to cure the problems the moment they first start manifesting themselves. The myths and misconceptions that state: "Dogs will grow out of behaviour problems", "it is only puppy behaviour", "the dog is teething", cause problems to escalate, and be more difficult to cure. At best, they cause dog owners to miss out on so much pleasure that they could otherwise be getting from their dogs. Dogs don't grow out of behaviour problems - the cause must be removed.
4. "How long does Natural Dog Training take to get results?"
An afternoon is all it normally takes for the family to learn how to "speak dog language", which is very simple, and very exciting. Once you know how dogs communicate naturally can connect with him properly be getting onto his wavelength, so to speak, and bring him under control astonishingly quickly. Not unlike speaking English to an English person instead of Japanese - the change in our behaviour will be amazing!
6. "How much will Natural Dog Training cost? "
The investment of your time is far less than traditional drilling requires, and you recover much - if not all (or more than) your investment through being informed, and therefore empowered. You also have this knowledge for all future dogs - in the same way that you do not have to learn to drive a car every time you buy a new one or learn to speak French every time you meet a French person!
8. "Do you make personal visits around the whole country?"
Yes. Pam will visit anywhere in the Global Village if her travelling costs are covered. However, dog owners get amazing results from other resources, such as her Home Natural Dog Training Kit, her book, booklets and Natural Dog Training Home Movies which are far more cost effective.
11. "Can even my dog be trained The Natural Way?"
Yes. The dog's original pack instincts are present in all domestic dogs. For over 35 years, Pam has been successfully applying the natural principles that govern dog behaviour to all breeds of dogs from 6 weeks to 16 years to cure all behaviour problems. Within breeds, however, there are different dynamics, like working instincts, "short fuses", a natural willingness, stubbornness, which Pam includes, channels and explains, while working with families.

What was your most interesting case?
“Well, this is spunky and innovative little Yorkie owned by a vet after having been found with both his back legs injured in an accident was, as could be expected – very stubborn! Pam was lucky enough to become the owner of this amazing dog where he provided great enrichment with his personality.
Yes, he did recover the use of both back legs - but in the meantime, he did not let life get him down!
