Real Dog Yoga

by Jo-Rosie Haffenden

In today's world we put huge demands on our canine partners, expecting them to fit in with our lifestyles, abandoning natural instincts when they are not convenient for us. Our dogs do remarkably well to keep up with these high expectations, but surely it is time to give them a clue as to what it is we want from them, and more importantly, to spend some time listening. In Real Dog Yoga, Jo-Rosie Haffenden, accredited trainer and behaviourist, and expert witness for the courts in dangerous dog cases, introduces us to the fascinating and wonderful new concept of Dog Yoga. Inspired by her own badly abused rescue dog, Archie, Haffenden has developed a technique that calms and relaxes, improves focus and impulse control and promotes body consciousness. Using a mixtures of postures, movements and expressions, Haffenden shows us how to teach our dogs to be calm, relaxed individuals and prevent the escalation of behaviours borne from frustration. This is an inspired and thought provoking new approach to training, and one that will hugely enrich the lives of both pet and so called 'problem' dogs, strengthening the all important bond between dog and owner.

Jo-Rosie Haffenden

Jo-Rosie is an Animal Behaviourist and TV animal trainer. She is an accredited expert witness for dangerous dog cases and published author of the hit training manual, The Real Dog Yoga.

She studied Human Psychology at university but quickly realised that humans weren’t the only animal she wanted to work with. After graduation, she spent 3 years at a London Animal Hospital where she developed her practical skills whilst studying to become a fully qualified animal behaviourist.

In 2016, Jo-Rosie and her partner, Nando Brown presented the acclaimed UK TV programme Rescue Dog to Super Dog. They selected, matched and trained 6 rescue dog for 6 people with varying psychological and physical disabilities.

Jo-Rosie recently wrote the book Real Dog Yoga, which she invented as a permission-based protocol to help dogs stretch when they are post-op or injured, and also as a means to calming dogs suffering with hyperactive or overly impulsive behaviour.

Jo’s passion for bully breeds, in particular American Pit Bulls, began when she adopted her own Pit Bull Terrier, Archie. Archie was rescued from a horrific situation and came to her having had his ears chopped off, been mutilated, injured and starved. He was 6 months old and she has spent the last 7 years working hard to rehabilitate him as well as to use him as an ambassador for the breed.

Jo lives in the UK with her fiancé and fellow TV presenter Nando Brown, their baby and their four dogs. She and Nando recently founded The School for Canine Science offering courses for dog trainers and behaviourists.
