4 Steps to Emotional Balance

How does your emotional intelligence and emotional balance affect your relationship with your dog?

Your dog can teach you so much about how to be in the world, and one of the big things you can learn is how to step more fully into your innate, emotional intelligence.

In this episode, Kathy explains why finding emotional balance is key to being a loving leader and how it can help you on the way to achieving your dream partnership with your dog. She also talks about how socially intelligent animals model emotional management through their “get back to grazing” response and what we can learn from this.

Grab a pen and some paper, as this episode is packed with helpful advice that you can put into practice with your relationship with your dog.

In this episode:

  • How your emotional intelligence impacts your family group
  • The five key elements of emotional intelligence
  • How to approach fear, anger, frustration, and anxiety with emotional balance


“Socially intelligent animals use emotion as information to engage surprisingly agile responses to environmental stimuli and relationship challenges.”

“As dog moms, it’s so helpful for us to step more fully into our innate emotional intelligence.”

“The more we develop our own emotional intelligence, the better our life is with our dogs.”

“Our dogs are like models of emotional sanity. By collaborating with the nonverbal wisdom of their emotions and feeling their emotions, they conserve energy for true emotions.”
