Kevin Behan was on my radio show May 16, 2012. He combines science with spirituality in his dog training business. In order to be more successful with our dogs, we have to learn to be more like them.
Kevin is author of the book, Your Dog Is Your Mirror. I picked out some interesting statements from his book, and we discussed them, such as:
–a dog cannot remember, but it never forgets
–dogs are never wrong
–use your dog to return to a state of animal consciousness
–feel your own shame and your own anger when your dog “misbehaves”
– by releasing a dog from your own control, you allow the dog to flourish and become more of who she is
–it’s not about the dog, it’s about how the dog makes us feel and what we think about those feelings
–what is the co-evolution of dogs and humans all about?
Wow, that last one is a dinger!
Kevin is a veteran police dog trainer, and one of the nation’s foremost experts in the rehabilitation of aggressive and problem dogs. Kevin trained his first dog at age ten.
Through his training of thousands of dogs, the establishment of his Canine Arts Kennel, and his work with European police dog trainers, Kevin began to move away from the conventional models of dog training and developed his own training techniques. He continues to transform the way people view their pets through his blog, training and seminars.
Listen in and realize your very own doggy nature!
