Dogs Can Teach Us To Train Them!

When we look at our dogs, they can make us feel better. They can calm us, make us laugh, and when we are sick they comfort us. According to Megan Blake, The Pet Lifestyle Coach®, we can also learn important lessons from them! Like… patience, respect, and a big lesson Megan learned from working with wolves is clear communication. Yes, Megan worked with wolves as part of her “lessons” in communicating with dogs! But you don’t need to go that far! Just look at your dog today and think about all the wonderful things he shares with you. And then, see how what he’s “saying" can help you improve his training!

The Monks of New Skete (yes actual Monks in a beautiful monastery in NY) have worked with this secret for decades. Listen to your dog, communicate with him, and use that deep communication in training. To hear about this first hand, Megan had the opportunity to interview Brother Christopher on her show on Pet Life Radio. He shared how The Monks of New Skete use this communication to train their very special German Shepherds.
