Our dogs and us

Why counselling for dog people?

How are you feeling?

Our dogs respond to how we feel

We humans are very good at ignoring how we feel. This is a good tactic to get us through difficult situations but if we do it too much it can affect our mental health, our relationships and how we live our lives. It can also cause us to have problems with our dogs, because they are so tuned into how we feel.

The experienced dog trainer Kevin Behan wrote a book about it. He said

The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says or does, it responds to how the owner feels

So when your dog’s behaviour has changed for some unknown reason or there’s a behaviour that you are struggling with an Anubis session can help you dig a bit deeper into what might be going on. Its not always about the dog.

Speaking to someone in a confidential, non-judgemental, safe environment, about the difficulties you are experiencing, can help.
