Dani RouseHolland APDL
I’m Dani RouseHolland, the PURE Dog Listener of K9 Instincts LLC. I have had dogs and loved dogs my whole life. I came across a book about the method of dog listening while fostering dogs for shelters and rescue groups. While reading, I learned a lot about dog behavior and started applying these methods to my companion and foster dogs.
I credit the dog listening method with enabling me to rescue an abandoned pack of dogs after they had been alone for about 5 months. This canine pack of a mom and three pups survived on their own and were leery of human contact. By using the dog listening method, another rescuer and I were able to gain the dogs’ trust and rescue them within 2 weekends! All of these dogs were adopted into their forever homes. After this successful rescue, I investigated the dog listening method in depth and attended courses in the United Kingdom to receive my Foundation and Advanced Certifications in Canine Communication.
In 2010, I was welcomed to the Pure Dog Listeners family as the first Accredited Pure Dog Listener in the USA!
I spent 5+ years as a volunteer dog trainer for Missouri Puppies for Parole (P4P). P4P is a Missouri Department of Corrections program where Missouri’s correctional centers partner with local rescue groups and shelters to help dogs find their "furever” homes. I trained the offenders to use PURE Dog Listening (PDL) at a Missouri prison which had one of the largest P4P programs in the state at that time.
I am now available for 1-2-1 consultations in people's homes. I work primarily in the Greater Kansas City, MO/KS area but will travel for out-of-town consultations throughout North America.
