Teaching your dog is different from training your dog
Training is a do as I say approach to getting behavior from your dog; teaching is an interaction between intelligent beings to accomplish a mutually satisfactory result. Mindful Dog Teaching gives you a new way of seeing your life with your dog and of getting behaviors that help humans and dogs live together in harmony. It is part philosophical discussion about finding more depth in your relationship with your canine companion and part straight-forward information about how to apply this new way of thinking to your life together.
