Dogs make us better people. Join me in returning the love to these beautiful souls.

My name is TAMARA TOKASH. I’m an unconventional dog wellness adviser. The first and only trainer and canine consultant / nutritionist in my region to impart a holistic bespoken approach to dog rearing. Dogs are not my hobby; they are what I live and breathe. I’ve spent a lifetime studying, researching and working with them. To that end, the result is my unique and comprehensive method that is evidence based. You may be at a precipice. If you are, I hope to impart with you a fresh, insightful perspective so the next time you look at your dog you see things a bit differently and consider a better way of life for them. Just like us, dogs are a collection of the choices we make. Every dog is an individual ~ no two dogs are alike. I invite you to join me – together we will make this happen!

Let’s embrace dogs for all that they are!

If you’re looking to have a “perfectly behaved” dog where you are the so-called “Alpha”, this is NOT the place for you. THIS CERTAINLY IS THE PLACE if you’re seeking a better life for your ALREADY perfect dog, free of suppression, frustration and chronic disease. I don’t want a dog that fears me and is broken because I lack knowledge. What I do want is a happy, vibrant, carefree, mannerly dog that is welcome anywhere because I’ve made smart choices and invested the time. I want to teach and guide my dogs intelligently while making sure they have no doubt how much I absolutely adore them. And that’s what I want for your dogs. My approach is backed by science, proven effective, positive and force free. Likewise, nutrition is at the root of wellness and behavior. Biologically appropriate food that dogs are meant to eat. It’s all connected folks.

Mind – Body – Spirit

SYNERGY is only achieved when all elements are considered. My hope is that you will see that there is so much more than having a “well trained” dog. It means absolutely nothing if a dog is fluent in obedience cues yet is eating a poor-quality food and is overly stressed. Nor is it beneficial for a dog to be fed a healthy biologically appropriate diet without any clear pack communication, thus resulting in a dysfunctional frenetic home life. Nothing in life is static, therefore we need to constantly adjust things in our dogs’ lives in order to help them regain balance. Just like we should in ours.

Healthy Lifestyle

How do I help my dog you may ask? You help them by creating a balance and cultivate synergy! This requires SIX R’s: REALIZE how you and your energy impacts your dog’s overall health and wellbeing, RESTORE your dog to optimal health by supporting their gut microbiome and feeding a biologically appropriate diet, RAISE your dog to be social with all types of people and animals, REDUCE the vaccine load and toxic chemicals in your dog’s environment, REMEMBER to always assess your dog’s stress level, and REGULAR exercise for mental and physical stimulation and overall wellness.

FOLLOW ME – You will learn how to craft a beautiful, happy, and healthy life with your dog. The relationship we create with our dogs, coupled with nutrition and lifestyle, are the key tenets of health and happiness. My wish for you all is that you and your dog will be blessed like my dogs and me. I want you too, to walk with your 18-year-old happy, healthy and disease-free dog, along a quiet path, feeling each other’s love and energy and being joyful together.
