Do you have a story about how working with Natural Dog Training has transformed your relationship with your dog? Do you have any feedback on this site that you wouldn't mind sharing with the world? I'm looking for testimonials that I can use on this site, and in promotional materials for the Natural Dog Training DVDs. Please, if you don't mind, take a minute, and send your stories to me at: neil at naturaldogblog dot com (or you can use my contact form). If you want to attach a photo, please do (though the photos aren't necessary). Thanks so much!
A Significant Shift
I received the DVDs and have watched disc 1. I want to focus on really getting the information from the first disc down before watching the second disc. I'm glad I bought the DVDs as seeing the action really helped me. I'm willing to try anything that falls within my range of "humane" with Tucker and so far, pushing and playing tug (where he always wins) has helped him overall to relax. He was already fairly relaxed (except around the neighbor's dogs) but I'm noticing he's more relaxed in more instances than before. And I'll testify that it's because of the pushing, the massage, and the tugging.By the way, this morning, I consciously focused on keeping my own energy relaxed when feeding our 5 house dogs (I feed them all at the same time in the kennel kitchen/office, which is a small space); and as I asked each one to sit or lie down, I massaged them in a relaxing way, and by golly!, I noticed a significant shift. Feeding time can be frenzy time with the assortment we have: a JRT, a Bischon/Poodle mix, a Rottie, deaf Moses, and Tucker (aka the Giant NM Brown Dog), but I've been working on making it more of a quiet time.
