Your CLARITY CHART
We need to get clarity on which activities will help us build trust and confidence … and turn off that faucet that leaks it all out!!
The plan is to:
1. Minimize, Pause or Eliminate activities that are not helpful for the long-term relationship/partnership we want with our dogs …
2. Do more of the activities that are helpful, and will build our confidence, increase the level of trust and are clearly leading us toward our desired outcome.
Your workbook leads you through the steps of listing your current activities … then sorting them into one of the three buckets – Minimize – Eliminate – Affirmative!
This process will set you and your dog up for success in a big way … truly!! It works every time!
Start with making a list of your ‘usual’ activities and then assessing each one for trust and confidence building.
TIP: Download the pdf, then open with Adobe Reader to be able to edit and save the document. Make multiple copies if you’d like to make one for different dogs. :)
