LTG MC Lesson 3 – WHAT Grows or Leaks Trust


What we often do with our dogs leaks trust, so let’s replace that with confidence and trust boosting partnership methods instead!

TODAY our focus is on WHAT. As in WHAT grows trust, and what leaks trust.

We’re going to be planting your THIRD seed of trust … adding in a layer of understanding between you and your dog.

Social and Cultural Learning give us and our dogs that strong feeling of BELONGING and are the key factors in how we can live cooperatively with our dogs in family units.

We’ll talk about what it means to grow or leak trust with your dog, and the importance of meeting our need TO BE SAFE and TO BE CONNECTED. And … Co-regulation: the heart of all positive relationships and partnerships.
