Anyone who has had a relationship with a dog knows that canines, just like humans, have individual personalities and experiences that shape the way they navigate through life. But we often forget that there are important differences, too. Many domestic challenges with dogs stem from misunderstanding these differences.
In this workshop, we leave behind our human thought process and see through the eyes of a dog so we can understand how differently they perceive this world. As we dive deep into the conscious mind of our furry family members, we develop an understanding of the true and natural way of the canine. What makes them pack animals? Why do they have such a clear and defined social structure? How do they communicate so clearly without a vocalized form of language?
We heighten our understanding of what we perceive as “problematic” behaviors, and we learn how to open up our mind’s eye to deepen our connection and create a safe and loving environment for our dogs.
In this workshop, we will not be working directly with dogs. To accommodate all guests, pets are not allowed on campus.
