How do you react when your dog is triggered by external factors while you’re enjoying a walk together?
The answer is almost never the same across the board, however, a common mistake is to react to the trigger alongside our dogs. Unfortunately, we can’t guard our dogs against all the potential triggers in the world. What we can do is offer support.
In this episode of the Enlightened By Dogs podcast, Kathy explains how staying connected with our dogs in these situations can be beneficial. She also runs us through some useful tips for leash walking our dogs.
In this episode:
- How to support our dogs when they are triggered
- When and how to rely on the safe, calm, and happy protocol
- Why a dynamic partnership with our dogs is beneficial
“You are either a #winner or #learner, and learner equals winner.”
“The more experience we get, the more competent we get at staying connected with our dogs.”
“If we cannot feel safe, calm, and happy in situations our dog needs us to be, things won’t go well.”
