The Six Connection Principles
We, as humans, have a tendency to make up a LOT of stories about everything in our lives, including our dogs! These stories (our thoughts and beliefs) whether they are accurate or not, have the power to impact our behavior. And, we know that our behavior impacts our dog's behavior (and vice versa!). So if we're ONLY operating from our stories or assumptions instead of getting curious and exploring other possibilities, we may be believing in something that is not accurate. When we practice observing and shifting our thoughts and behavior patterns with our dogs, our relationship has the possibility of including more connection.
Building a relationship with you AND your dog is important to me
My Six Connection Principles are so important to the training and behavior modification process. I use these principles as a framework when developing relationships with both you AND your dog. They are my core values when working with my clients. The Six Connection Principles invite everyone to explore the world through a fresh lens. As we work together, I will reference and demonstrate the principles to support the training process and your relationship with your dog.
