Our dogs and us
Why counselling for dog people?
Our dogs respond to how we feel
We humans can be very good at ignoring how we feel. This is a good tactic to get us through difficult situations but when we do it too much it can lead to problems in our lives. It can also affect our dogs.
The experienced dog trainer Kevin Behan wrote a book about it. He said
We do the things we do for a lot of reasons, but for our dog, who studies our every move, it doesn’t matter what we do, say, or think. What matters is what we feel and the emotion that’s invested in the things we do, say, or think.Kevin Behan, Your Dog is Your Mirror
So when your dog’s behaviour has changed for some unknown reason, or there’s a behaviour that you are struggling with, something else might be going on. An Anubis session can help you dig a bit deeper. It’s not always about the dog.
