Pam Whyte has always instinctively understood the way dogs think and communicate. Even as a child, it was frequently observed that when she was around, dogs were much calmer.
After three years at Witwatersrand University in the 1960's studying psychology and the social sciences, she got married, and had two children and three dogs. Friends were always astonished at her pets’ exemplary behaviour, and as a result, she felt drawn to reveal her secrets. This led to a lifelong passion to learn yet more about dogs, as well a to share her knowledge with other dog owners. Using her proven methods, Pam has emerged into the public spotlight from time to time, earning her a reputation for astonishing results. This has not always endeared her to those who use conventional methods.
But Pam is uncontrite, holding workshops, giving remedial training, talks and lectures, and writing her popular books, and papers for academic institutions. Her work on Pack Communication is recognised globally.
Through conducting extensive studies of wild dog behaviour in Eastern Africa, Pam is able to teach dog owners their dog’s own inbuilt, natural communication system which gives immediate results. This is because the dog does not have to learn anything - he understands automatically. So without having to spend a whole lot of time and effort, the results are not only immediate, but permanent.
Pam now owns her own wild dog. When visiting a rescue centre, Josephine - an Australian wild dog - chose Pam by coming up to her and licking her hand. She is now teaching Pam as much as Pam is teaching her - as well as teaching puppies good manners in Pam's puppy training and socialising classes. The way the parent dog does in the wild - by example, not through bullying. Josephine's sweet temperament is imprinted on her "pu;ils" naturally.
Through personal visits, and Natural Dog
Training Home-Kits, Pam has taught many thousands of families the powerful, yet gentle techniques, which change disobedient and unruly dogs of
all sorts into social, trustworthy pets. Her success has also prompted her to write books, make video's, and develop a range of dog leads which
enable all members of the family to bring their dogs under willing control, giving dog owners an improvement in their dog's behaviour in just one visit.
Pam holds workshops, gives remedial training at dog training schools, gives talks and lectures, and writes her popular books, and papers
for pet owners, and academic institutions. She has a very loyal following of dog owners whom she has assisted with their pets both locally and
overseas. Her clients include, among others, vets, behaviour therapisits, dog trainers, movie stars, actors, politicians.
Her work on Pack Communication is recognised by such institutions as: The Plastic Surgeon's Association, RSA; Child Accident
Prevention Society, UK; RSPCA, SPCA, Animal Protection Institute, USA; Veterinary Universities, Anglia Survival, UK; Conservationists in East
Africa; University de Nancy, France; Guide Dogs Ass. France; Paneikon, Italy; Wild dog Productions, and Medical Research scientists in New Zealand. She also helped after the
war in Bosnia by replacing positive and negative reinforcement with correct communication when training dogs to detect land mines. She has also been invited to present a peper on her research
at the Paris International Conference on Education, Economy and Society later this year.
As civilized dog owners, we need to realise just how
intelligent, intuitive, emotional and complex our domestic dog is - how he instinctively thinks, feels and communicates.
Dogs are actually designed to live within families, and within a loyal and mutually supportive and caring social system. They therefore have their own
instinctive "language", which they bring with them into our homes. Even better - they have a highly developed
conscience that enables them to adopt our "ground rules", without us having to keep disciplining and commanding
them - because the pack that our dog was designed to live in, are genetically equipped with a highly developed sense of right and wrong to enable them to live by a strict moral code for purposes of survival.
This means that our dogs are actually "pre-packaged" to move into our homes, with the ability to know the difference between what
is acceptable behaviour, and what is not acceptable behaviour. provided we know how to communicate these parameters to them in a way that their instincts can relate to. And this is not
achieved through ordering our dogs around - which is why there are so many different (artificial) dog training methods and new gimmicks appearing on the dog behaviour scene... Every single dog owner who seeks help with their dog's behaviour from Pam has already tried commanding their dogs -
many have taken them to training, some for months and even years - yet their dogs are still "naughty", "disobedient",
and have behaviour problems. But all dogs are genetically equipped to live within the parameters of a social system - provided these parameters are set for them in a way that their instincts can relate to. Which is the secret to Dog Training Nature's Way's phenomenal success.
Doesn't that sound exciting? Or does it sound complicated? It is nowhere near as complicated as taking a dog to dog training every weekend for weeks on end, practicing your training every day, trying to tire him out by making him run 5, 10, 15 kilometers a day (and making him fitter and fitter in the process), buying one gimmick after another - and still living with a destructive, hyperactive, "disobedient" dog!
As a Western Society, we "jam up" our dog's finely tuned natural instincts and communication system with our artificial and inappropriate techniques that come from the army or the laboratory, making us think that our dogs are stupid, stubborn, disobedient etc. when they haven't a clue what we are on about. In the wild - the pack cooperates with their alpha, who is their
captain - whom they trust. They do not obey him through fear of punishment - he leads by example - not through giving commands. (He can't speak.) Or through dominating (in the wild, unity is strength and domination and submission are division.)
Pam Whyte teaches dog owners the signals that their dog expects, and the cues to avoid, in order to gain the control they are looking for, and establish the behaviour patterns they want in their dog. Because
Dog Language is so simple and works so quickly, having a well mannered dog just fits into their lifestyle. She points out that because artificial methods actually confuse dogs, people think that it takes so long to train a dog.
Pam Whyte's unique and empowering philosophy inspires academic institutions and animal welfare organisations internationally:
"I could hardly believe it when I visited your site, because I have been looking for Pam Whyte for years! We talked when I was at the Animal Protection Institute way back around 2001; but lost touch when I left there. I’ve never forgotten her amazing videos and book, because her methods are by far the best I’ve ever seen. In fact, was just thinking about Pam the other day as I was walking a friend’s dog! So I am thrilled to see your website at www.trustworthydogs.com.
If there’s anything else I can do to help promote your wonderful program, just ask!
Dr. Jean. (Vet, USA) (Email to Pam Whyte.)
"I like the individuality of your thoughts and I am of the opinion that you are a good observer and interpreter of the contact between man and dog. You are more than capable of thinking for yourself and I see this as a valuable contribution in this [animal behaviour] study.
"We need more people like you who are not afraid to make public their own honest observations. In conclusion, I would like to congratulate you on an original piece of work." Professor J.S.J. Odendaal. Professor of Companionan Animal Zootechnology and Nutrition, University of Pretoria, Faculty of Veterinary Science. (Letter to Pam Whyte.)
