Having dogs in my life is a blast!
Ever since I can remember, I have always had dogs in my life. They bring so much life to us and we in return are able to share our lives with them.
This is my wonderful dog Selina. She was a great girl for 12yrs and honestly changed my entire life around. I honestly blamed her behaviors as the truth for the first 2yrs of our lives. After watching my 1st episode ever of the dog whisperer in early 2004; I cried and changed my mind in what I believed my dog was. Though I believe she changed my life because she brought me the chance to show her what it takes, it was ultimately me in the end that gave her the life she deserved, changing her life forever.
Thinking her of one way in the beginning of our relationship brought me to see her as something I would never seen if I didn’t look. Dogs are not their behavior, they are a state of mind. The only real way to understand your dog is through a submissive state of mind. If your dog is reacting to you all the time through acting out in excited or bad/inappropriate behaviors, they are not truly understanding you. Once YOU create a submissive mind in your dog, will you then and only then each have a real and honest understanding of each other.
I have learned so much from the dogs that have come in and out of my life. I hope I can share what I’ve learned to you someday!
