Safe, Calm, and Happy


Equipping dog moms with a modern way of seeing and solving behavior and relationship challenges using simple strategies that build trust, connection and cooperation. (without obedience/training)

Behavior is


Guessing games are fun when they’re on purpose. But when your dog is trying to tell you something that you don’t understand, it’s frustrating – for both of you.

Since dogs can’t talk it out, they ACT it out.

When your dog feels uncomfortable, vulnerable and unheard … their behavior escalates from a whisper to a scream.

Imagine what it’ll be like when you and your dog can finally understand one another.

With the Dancing Hearts partnership lifestyle method, dogs and their human moms can feel calm, happy and enjoy their life together.
