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's knowledge of The Alexander Technique gives her a unique understanding of energy, an integral part of Cesar's method.
Ronit was highly motivated to meet Cesar and to personally experience his energy while he worked with dogs. Ronit was extremely fortunate to be invited onto Cesar's small course at his famous Dog Psychology Center, where she ws chosen from a worldwide pool of applicants. In spite of the large expense, Ronit made sure to make it happen!
Ronit trained with The Animal Communicator, Anna Breytenbach, as well as Jon Young on a course called "Intuitive Communication and Tracking", at Findhorn in Scotland in 2015. When Ronit saw Anna's documentary "The Animal Communicator" Ronit was highly motivated to work with and experience Anna's energy. Ronit was fortunate to be invited onto Anna's size-restricted course, chosen from applicants all around the globe. Ronit gained an ability to tune into the nature and psychology of animals, which greatly benefits the animals she works with.
Ronit is a Senior Teacher of The Alexander Technique for more than 25 years (gentle hands-on work for humans and animals) and has excellent results with old, stiff jointed, fearful, nervous or grouchy animals. Animals become calm and relaxed, joints are eased and movement becomes youthful.
"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!"
Elizabeth I., Montecito
Ronit has donated her free time to walking and working with the dogs at the Santa Barbara County Shelter as well as fostering aggressive or problems dogs and rehabilitating them in order to find them adoption homes.

"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." Malcolm Balk, Montreal, Canada
"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 also needed a refresher. 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. I was pleased and also amazed!
Thank you so much!"
Siobhan M., San Francisco
"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!"
