They end up feeling drained, lost, like a failure.
And the worst part? Their sense of clarity and confidence about their abilities to do right by their dog is broken.
That’s just not ok with me.
These stories make me crazy because I know it doesn’t have to be this way...and that’s exactly why I poured my heart and soul into creating my programs, and why I am working so hard to spread the ripples...
May I ask: what was YOUR dream?
When you brought your new dog home, you imagined how life will be, right?
You imagined: long walks in nature together...fun social events…play…vacations…dog camps…
Or maybe you imagined: training, competing ... standing in the winners circle with your best dog.
Yes, these are the things we all dream about: Incredible partnership with a dog we adore.
Then real life happens.
You and your dog began to struggle. You reached out for help and tried working with several trainers and multiple methods, getting more worried or frustrated by the week.
Your struggles just never seem to get resolved. You have reached out again and again for help, but it just doesn’t stick. Or just doesn’t feel right. Or simply just doesn’t work for you and your dog.
You’re left with a dog who pulls, lunges and barks when you try to go for a walk.
Or a dog who won’t come if there is something more interesting and you don’t have a cookie in your hand.
Or: You walk away from your runs, head down, ﬁghting back the tears, because you KNOW your dog is better than that.
You try not to let your dog feel your disappointment, but it’s so hard...
I have been there myself, my friend. I feel your pain.
With all that being said, I want you to know this:
My personal struggles with my HARD dogs led me to my biggest breakthroughs.
I discovered that it is NOT better or more training that is needed ...
I discovered that a trusting, heart-connected partnership with our dogs CHANGES EVERYTHING!!
