‘Dog Guru’ Amrut Sridhar Hiranya
Amrut, aptly called ‘Dog guru’ by his clients is a professional ‘Canine Behaviourist’ educated and trained in New Zealand.
A lot of dog owners raise their puppies thinking they would have a ‘perfect’ friend who would listen and to their every tune. But alas, far from ‘perfect’, dogs like people have their own special habits. “An untrained dog is like any other over active child,” says Amrut, “He needs to be disciplined, needs to be shown what is right and wrong and with a bit of training, he can be disciplined the same way we discipline kids. And like all kids dogs also need constant guidance and instruction,” he adds.
