🔴😨Big emotions, unmet needs, and reactive behavior will keep the nervous system stuck in survival mode for dog moms AND their dogs. So no matter how hard we try to train away our dog’s difficult behaviors, nothing really changes. 😭
❌ Focusing on training behaviors is NOT the most effective way to live happily with dogs, and doing so often leads to getting stuck in a reactive spiral of stress.
THE FACT IS: 👣💕🐾 when your dog feels like your partner, they WANT to be, and choose to be, cooperative. It’s their nature! No training or behavior modification is even needed — that’s true for any healthy relationship.
And when your relationship is built on a solid foundation of trusting partnership…
🌟 You have a dog that loves to listen, and is attentive, responsive, and responsible.
So, instead of having a dog that pulls or lunges on the leash, or barks like mad at everything, or obsessively chases, or is overly anxious or nervous about normal things … you have a dog that checks in with you, comes when you call, trusts you enough that they are not on hyper alert 24/7, and calms down quickly after an upset.
💖 And isn’t that what you really want?
We get right to the core of what we dog moms, and our dogs, really need to thrive: feeling connected, feeling safe, feeling heard and understood. We learn to clearly communicate in a way that our dogs naturally understand. All mixed in with lots of love and plenty of fun!
☯️ It’s a mutually respectful, honoring way of living in harmony with our dogs as family. You’ll love it as much as your dog does! It’s a win-win!
✨ These foundation strategies worked for Ros, and Dee, and Sue, and Ana, and Marianne, and Beth, and Sandra, and thousands of other dog moms since 2007, when I first began teaching online.
I can teach you too!
It all starts here in the Brilliant Dog Foundation Builders program. It’s our partnership foundation that gives you the QUICK WINS with the behavior breakthroughs that you need right now … AND the foundation that will enable you to GROW your partnership into a brilliant life with your dog.
“After being kicked out of obedience class and failing reactive dog class, I found Kathy Kawalec. Instead of focusing on obedience and training, we breathed a sigh of relief and began focusing on appreciating each other and observing and listening to each other. Life since is a daily delight with my girl!”
~Jane and Skye
But then I got a new ‘dream’ puppy that was to be my rising star, BUT my world was turned upside down when we began to crash and burn.
I was really focused on ‘getting everything right’ with Phoenix as a puppy and I spent every available moment with her — positive manners and obedience training, trick training, and plenty of bonding activity and enrichment.
🚀 Here’s how it goes when you follow my simple, modern, holistic roadmap…
✨Your dog is attentive and responsive, and your dog loves to come running when you call out their name.
✨You and your dog learn to walk as partners, just like all social animals do naturally…no training needed!
✨You are able to be calm, present, and enjoy your dog more fully.
✨You feel confident with just how much and what type of exercise and enrichment your dog really needs to thrive.
✨You understand your dog’s unique personality drivers, and their deeper social needs and the root causes of their ‘bad’ behaviors …
✨And NOW you know how to proactively meet their needs, along with your own, so that your foundation of cooperation opens the door to your dream life with your dog! No more second-guessing!!
✅ I can teach you too!
There is NO other group that offers this level of positive partnership support. You are not alone!!
If you can check ONE of these boxes, you are in the right place!!
You are ready to break free of the spiral of stress and build a lasting and sustainable partnership foundation with your dogs.
"After adopting Bella who was reactive to EVERYTHING, I never dreamed I would be hiking with BOTH of my dogs, enjoying nature without constantly scanning, and I love having the tools I learned in BPA to keep my little pack safe, calm and happy!"
~Terri and Bella
“My dream agility puppy was OCD, over-aroused and uncontrollable on walks and in the agility building. Now, we live in partnership because who I am for my dogs comes from my desire to live with my dogs in a way that feeds our souls - not my ego."
~Kim with Summit
"We enjoy our walks and adventures and cuddles. I trust her so she is off lead and exploring so much more which she loves. My relationship with Jess is 90% joyful, loving and fun, rather than 90% worried, stressed, upset and frustrated like before."
~Erin with Jess
"We had a rocky start and when nothing was working, I regretted getting him. Finally, through Kathy's program, I had a mindset breakthrough that changed everything with my dog.
I don't cry with frustration anymore. I love my boy with all my heart and he now comes running to me with a smile that is something I cherish and makes me cry with joy. "
~Lori with Cabo
"Is this the same dog that threw herself at the patio door with manic barking that drove me to exhaustion? What I love about my life with Freya now is the feeling of partnership.
I get such a thrill when I go outside to check on her in the garden, and she immediately looks at me, and if I need her to come in, she skips happily along at my side. My heart feels lighter, and I am in awe about how amazing she is."
~Pauline with Freya
"I am no longer an anxious ball of nerves on walks. The progress we have made is beyond anything I had ever imagined possible.
We no longer chase wildlife, joggers or cyclists and we can walk where other dogs are and remain relaxed and connected with each other -- on leash and off!"
~Ros with Phoebe, Myrtle and Ekko
“My dream dog had become a nightmare, my life was in turmoil and my family was miserable. With our partnership foundation, life is liberating, joyful and totally works! Who knew?”
~Dee and Phalen
“I thought: I’ve tried everything, training classes, behavior sessions, reactive dog classes, I have nothing to lose. 10 months later, we all enjoying our Brilliant Partners lifestyle and I’m so proud of my 3 fur kids!”
~Bettina, with Murphy, Mary and Bear
"After being kicked out of obedience class, I found Kathy Kawalec. Instead of focusing on obedience and training, we breathed a sigh of relief and began focusing on appreciating each other and observing and listening to each other. Life since is a daily delight with my girl!”

“I can’t even express the deep gratitude to Kathy and all of you who helped us.”
“I was struggling with Flo’s reactivity. In the city she would react to sounds, kids, scooters, skateboards. In the country she pulled on leash and off leash would chase wildlife. I was desperate and didn’t know what to do anymore.
Stella talks about her reactive poodle...
“Oh, hi! Sure I’ve got just a minute, I am really busy — trying to get my canine sibs under control right now. They’re not very cooperative if you ask me. No matter how many times I tell them, I end up repeating myself over and over. Good thing I love my job.
I’ve been building partnerships with my dogs for a lifetime. Puppies I’ve raised, adults I’ve rescued, dogs that no one wanted and dogs that were said to be ‘untrainable’ and hopeless.
Each and every dog was a blessing, and ALL of my dogs became amazing companions, world-class partners in dog sports like agility and herding, and the best teachers ever!
25+ years of working professionally with over 2800 dogs and their families in over 30 countries around the world has taught me sooooo much! I’ve put together the exact ingredients that create a trusting, loving, attentive and responsive relationship with a dog … instead of one built on transactions, unable to stand up to ordinary challenges of modern life.
This Brilliant Dog Foundation Builders program shares a culmination of what I’ve learned about what makes a dog difficult, reactive, anxious … and what nurtures trust, love and cooperation instead.
If you’re committed to making this the year you build a partnership foundation with your dog, I am so eager to be your guide and help you get started! My mission is to help a million dog moms, so I hope you take advantage of the special tuition for this membership – it’s my gift to you!!
See you there!
