Understanding Your Dog: What's Happening Under the Surface?
Getting curious about our dog’s behavior … and find out what’s happening UNDER THE SURFACE, for a new level of understanding so that you can break the spiral of doubt, difficulty, and disconnection.
What we do with our dogs often leaks trust, so let’s replace that with confidence and trust boosting partnership methods instead! I’ll teach you strategies that help your dog (and you!) AVOID meltdowns, and protection and survival behaviors.
How to Plan for Partnership Success
with Your Dog
In this class, I’ll teach you how to create a circle of safety and trust for you and your dog that reduces over-arousal, stress, anxiety, uncertainty, confusion … creating Safe, Calm and Happy™ instead!
Keep your momentum going to build your foundation with the skills from our Tree of Trust framework … without obedience training … even if your dog is behaving badly, and even if you have tried everything and nothing has worked, and even if you don’t think it’s possible right now.
"My biggest insight is that I am the key to our success.
My dog is who he is and he is perfect just as he is. As such I don’t need to work on him, I need to work on me.
Since I began paying close attention to my thoughts and focusing on my process affirmation I have become a new person."
“I feel as if I can identify problems (thoughts, situations) much earlier and think about them - why am I thinking/feeling that, how can I change this situation so my dogs will not be over-aroused, etc.
My goal going into the program was to work on my mindset part of my partnership with Cliff so I could come to believe that we can succeed, and I certainly achieved that."
“"I understand my dogs a lot more and I try to think about their personality before I take any action with them to help our communication! I changed my mindset from I have to...to I love to!
Our play sessions are calmer, less barking, more fun! We are more in harmony since we are careful about the energy level of our activities. Thank you!"
