    Such a good interview, Kevin. You’ve worked so hard for so many years to learn all that you know, and I’m so happy that people are starting to listen. So much is becoming clearer to me each day. Not a day goes by that I don’t study your books and watch your youtube videos. It’s a slow process for me, but I’m getting there. Looking so forward to the Orlando seminar in April. Thanks for all you do, Kevin!!

  2. Justin says:

    Julie I agree. Kevin is doing such great work and we love the work he’s doing! Kevin let’s keep in touch and do it again when your new books come out. Love all you do. 🙂

    Justin, please let us all know how Maggie does with her barking issue. Interesting approach to rehabilitating the barking problem.

    Even though I read your first book and part of your second. several points became clearer through this interview. Some of the language that you use is now more clear to me. Your whole approach is beautiful and mind blowing at the same time. I had to really relax and let it flow in to my being. I am slowly incorporating it into my training and I see nice changes in my relationship with my dog.

    Thanks for sticking with your observations and following the contradictions in the dominance model.

    Listening to the interview was very beneficial. I agree with Jamey, several things I had read became more clear. I am so excited about NDT…and yet I am concerned. I have been exposed to the other methods for so long, though with great discomfort, I fear that I will revert to prior behavior in a stress situation.

    Although, our dogs seem to be happier, as a result of the small changes I have made in how I feel and respond to some things. (Like the neighbors dog that barks and gets loose a lot.)

    Don’t worry. All must struggle against the fear instincts, so you’re in good company. The challenge is to perceive the flow at the root of it all. Keep On Pushing!!

Books about Natural Dog Training by Kevin Behan

In Your Dog Is Your Mirror, dog trainer Kevin Behan proposes a radical new model for understanding canine behavior: a dog’s behavior and emotion, indeed its very cognition, are driven by our emotion. The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says, or does; it responds to what the owner feels. And in this way, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions. Behan demonstrates that dogs and humans are connected more profoundly than has ever been imagined — by heart — and that this approach to dog cognition can help us understand many of dogs’ most inscrutable behaviors. This groundbreaking, provocative book opens the door to a whole new understanding between species, and perhaps a whole new understanding of ourselves.
  Natural Dog Training is about how dogs see the world and what this means in regards to training. The first part of this book presents a new theory for the social behavior of canines, featuring the drive to hunt, not the pack instincts, as seminal to canine behavior. The second part reinterprets how dogs actually learn. The third section presents exercises and handling techniques to put this theory into practice with a puppy. The final section sets forth a training program with a special emphasis on coming when called.
