A Life Coach For Dogs and Their Celebrity Owners!

All relationships take work. Romantic partnerships get the lion's share of the attention, but this story is all about a woman who has focused her life on helping people develop healthy, happy relationships with two types of non-romantic partners: their pet dogs, first, but also themselves.


Tamar Geller found herself called to work with dogs while on a self-reflection trip in the desert in Israel, following her mandatory service in the Israeli army as an intelligence officer. While the young woman had always thought that she would become a psychologist because of her interest in how humans think and behave, she realized that she could provide a meaningful service by focusing on how humans think and behave towards their pets, and specifically their dogs. Tamar developed a pioneering approach to pet training, called The Loved Dog™ method, and she wrote a book about it. That's when the calls from celebrities started coming in.

Oprah describes Tamar as "a life coach for dogs and their people," and Tamar says that she likes that depiction very much. By focusing on kindness and affection—and not on commands and punishment—Tamar helps pet owners develop their relationship with their animals through clear communication, a method that can often teach the human half of the pair a lot about themselves, as well as their dogs.

And it works! Tamar's superior method and results have given The Loved Dog™ method and its creator a great reputation. In addition to Oprah, Tamar has worked with Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi, Larry King, Natalie Portman, and others—both A-list celebs and non-famous dog owners find enormous value in sessions with Tamar.

The trainer and author says that she sees herself as doing God's work and being of service to others, and this goes beyond training sessions. Tamar also founded Operation Heroes & Hounds, a non-profit that focuses on improving the lives of both veterans and shelters dogs!

Watch as someone who is not only trained in human psychology but is a veteran herself, seems to have found her calling with this type of work. Tamar says that her best days are ones when she knows she has "connected with someone's heart, and got them to see themselves." This goes both for humans and for pooches!
