Ronit began working with dogs using her Alexander Technique skills. Realizing that she needed to know more about dog behavior and training, she began a serious study of the methods of The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan, eventually graduating from his course "Training Cesar's Way" in April 2013.
Ronit was highly motivated to meet Cesar and to personally experience his energy while he worked with dogs. She was extremely fortunate to be invited onto Cesar's small course at his famous Dog Psychology Center, where she was chosen from a worldwide pool of applicants. In spite of the large expense, Ronit made sure to make it happen!
Ronit's knowledge of The Alexander Technique gives her a unique understanding of energy and body language, an integral part of Cesar's method.
Ronit trained with The Animal Communicator, Anna Breytenbach, as well as Jon Young on a course called "Intuitive Communication and Tracking", at Findhorn, Scotland in 2015. When Ronit saw Anna's documentary "The Animal Communicator" she knew she had to attend the course in Scotland. Ronit improved her awareness of nature and the psychology of animals, which greatly benefits the dogs she works with.
"Ronit has an extraordinary gift with animals."
"Ronit has an extraordinary gift with animals. I couldn't believe the change in my 15 year old dog Ruby. Her stiffness went away, she looked younger and was much more playful!"

"I highly recommend Ronit as a dog trainer."
"I was very impressed by Ronit's dog training. She immediately took control of the situation with our aggressive dog, while explaining what she was doing and how to reproduce those results. She is confident and competent and I highly recommend her as a dog trainer. The change has been lasting and remarkable."

"I can't thank you enough!"
"I can't believe the change in Tolly. He knew exactly what he was supposed to do. Walking was much easier. He's not barking at the back window or at the front door. You're right, it's like you woke something in him which he knew felt right. I can't thank you enough!"
Hannah, Montreal, Canada
"I am very impressed"
"Elwood was such a gem for the rest of the long drive home after you worked with him.
I am very impressed with how you handled him and what you taught me. I had never seen him so calm and well behaved before!
Thank you so much!"
Siobhan M., San Francisco, CA
"I feel more empowered"
"Thank you so much for coming and working with Jet and me. The other day we were at a kennel surrounded by other dogs. Jet was at my side with no barking or acting out! He even lay down and relaxed!
I now feel more empowered (no longer frustrated) to help him be a good boy.
Your dog training is a life saver for both of us!"
