EBD067 Hope For Living With Difficult Dogs with Sue Mimm

Believe in yourself, believe in your dog … what is possible is way beyond your wildest dreams … even with difficult dogs!

Does life with your difficult dog frustrate you? Are you feeling stressed out or overwhelmed by their behavior? Does it feel like there’s no end in sight?
Never fear! Brilliant Partner and recurring podcast guest Sue Mimm is joining Kathy on the show today to talk about how she went from dreading her days with her difficult dogs, to loving every single minute of their time together!
Sue sheds light on some of her difficult moments early on in their relationship, and explains how she managed to turn it around. She describes where she put her focus and how things progressed into such an amazing transformation!
A year and a half ago, Sue would have never imagined things going the way they are today, but it has happened, and she’s here to help you see the hope in your story with YOUR difficult dogs.

In This Episode:

  • We get an introduction to Sue, her dogs, and the golden standard of partnership.
  • What got Sue from being overwhelmed and stressed out by her difficult dogs, to having the greatest partnership possible
  • Facing the inner pressure created by thinking “this isn’t how it should be” versus “this is how it is, but we can improve it.”
  • The core things that Sue focused on to make the transformation happen!
  • Does your dog get better, or is it actually you who gets better?
