Abbreviated episode today focusing on the importance of being centered and grounded when working with your dog. As entirely non-verbal creatures, dogs rely entirely on pure primal resources for understanding the world around them. There are, of course, their senses with scent being the primary data source. Soon after are hearing and vision but above all else canis familiaris takes its cues from the energy with which the people and animals around it operate. Having a bad day? Feeling angry? Completely out of sorts? Your dog knows. And if you're already having trouble getting your dog to mind you, chances are unlikely that in this state you'll have any better luck. This is a topic we'll address more deeply in future episodes, but for today a quick hit and some tips.
