Dr. Fishburn’s research focus is on carnivore ecology and conservation. She has worked with wolves and domestic dogs for many years.
In her work as a holistic dog behaviorist at ‘Kachina Canine Communication’, Dr. Fishburn focuses on the fundamental needs of dogs. She works with clients to help optimise the dog’s well-being and applies her knowledge of animal behavior, zoology, ecology, and conservation to teach a dog’s human guardian why their dog must be understood to improve the life of their canine companion.
When Dr Isla is presented with a dog with a behaviour problem, she views it from the perspective of a zoologist. She consults a mental list of causes of behaviour, and the first thing she always looks at is the dog’s emotional state.
Dr Isla is a true advocate for PetzPodz she believes by correct usage of a PetzPodz stress and anxiety can be reduced significantly in dogs when left alone. Petzpodz provide a detailed ‘step by step’ guide written and practiced by Dr Isla for each and every new Podz owner.
