Graeme Sims has a new website

Graeme Sims has a new website, The Graeme Sims Method - and dog lovers in Italy are in for a treat, as it's a bi-lingual website. Now not only English speakers can discover Graeme's wonderful life story, his love of dogs and his training methods. I've met Graeme many times and he is always delightful company, full of insights into dogs' minds, and never short of an amusing or thought-provoking anecdote. I will never forget watching him work nine sheepdogs simultaneously, it was amazing.

 

You can hear Graeme on DogCast Radio talking about Annie the dog who started it all when he found on the street and they rescued each other and found a new role in life together as well as his display team of dogs in Episode 29 of DogCast Radio. In Episode 62 he talks about the first book in which he shared his training method - The Dog Whisperer How to train your dog using its own language, and in Episode 84 Graeme turns his attention to helping rescue dogs with his book Give A Dog A Home How to make your rescue dog a happy dog. We have reviews of both book on the site - review of The Dog Whisperer How to train your dog using its own language and a review of Give A Dog A Home How to make your rescue dog a happy dog.

 

If you haven't discovered Graeme Sims yet, you have a treat in store, and if you already know of Graeme, his new website will bring you new delights. And the sharp eyed amongst you might even spot a photo of our Rusty interacting with Graeme on the new website!

 

Take care,
