Walking your dog is meant to be an enjoyable experience for both of you. You should walk side by side, facing the same direction, with the same destination in mind.
Of course, this is easier said than done. For many dog moms, walking their dogs can be a stressful and frustrating experience, rather than a fantastic bonding opportunity.
But, what if walking with your dog was easy?
What if you didn’t have to dread every walk you took together?
It sounds like a dream come true, right?
Well, that’s exactly what Kathy teaches you in this episode of Enlightened By Dogs. Don’t worry, there are no anti-pull contraptions or strict training measures required – all you need is an open mind and a willingness to learn!
In this episode:
- How we can learn from our dogs and become better people as a result
- Why you should ‘think like a mother’ when walking with your dog
- What it means to be a dog mom
- How to embrace the ‘mother thinking mindset’ and connect with your dog
- How to make walking with your dog easy
“All social animals have that natural instinct to mother.”
“This can help influence how you move through the world in all of your relationships.”
“That mothering instinct is feeling that your dog is like a small child, and you’re walking hand in hand.”
“Our dogs allow us this safe place to learn and grow.”

Thank you. A while new perspective on being with others no matter who or what they are xxx
I just love the analogy of walking with an excited dog is the same as walking with an excited child! Makes perfect sense in terms of how we can view and experience our relationship with our dog! Thank you for that insight!
