ON A MISSION TO CHANGE LIVES
Changing the way dogs are trained, one dog at a time
Shirin has dedicated the past 26 years of her life working hard to ensure every dog gets trained with the kindness they deserve
The world said it couldn’t be done – Indian women can’t train dogs! Shirin Merchant said it could and then went on to show them how. Not only did she train dogs, but for over 24 years, she has worked hard to change the way dogs are trained in India from methods of intimidation and pain to kinder, positive training methods.
Now, when a trainer tells a dog owner it can’t be done, the swift retort is – “If Shirin could, we can.” Thanks to Shirin, dog lovers in India now believe that there is always a kinder approach to any problem.
