EBD187 Let Your Dog Reduce Your Stress

It’s no secret that our dogs make us feel happy and safe, that’s one of the many reasons we’re on this partnership journey with them.

Have you ever wondered if we do the same for them?

The connection we share with our dogs is a two-way street, but it’s often easy to forget that their idea of ‘happy and safe’ is quite different from what we think it is.

In this episode of the Enlightened By Dogs podcast, Kathy explores the premise that we may be unintentionally keeping our dogs from doing things that keep them balanced.  She explains how allowing our dogs to “do what they do best” is beneficial to the partnership lifestyle.

In this episode:

  • Kathy shares anecdotal research on how our stress affects our dogs
  • What keeps dogs centered, happy, and thriving
  • How to help your dog remain balanced in a stressful situation


“What dogs do best is to live in the moment and really experience what’s happening around them.”

“We have this close connection and a tightly shared social intelligence that causes us to affect our dogs in a very significant way.”

“Dogs do things that humans don’t do in this day and age, and they can help us with that if we allow them to.”
