Neil Sattin Interviews Kevin Behan

He came to train with Kevin years ago, with his aggressive dog Nola. What started as a few sessions, turned into an apprenticeship, and Neil has since become a vital part of the NDT community. (And Nola, as Neil describes, has “become a shining beacon of sociability”.) You can read more about Neil and his journey here.

Very interesting to hear a different, non-dominance approach that still incorporates the energy aspect of the human-dog relationship. Thanks for sharing!
