Once a dog is able to become the object of attraction then it can make a trait on demand in order to complement the object of its attraction. This is the first instance of the sable GSD being able to handle the intense pressure of a male dog of high resistance value and allowing this energy to reflect back onto him and travel via his subliminal beam to the deep gut. Because he is the object of attraction, this triggers physical memories of infancy, and so the preyful action patterns come up in what is characteristically termed by the mainstream as “play solicitation.” Hopefully this commentary can provide an alternative, energetic interpretation in a way that can be visualized. The tension in both dogs is being salved by the feeling of motion, and due to the principle of emotional conductivity, the emotional battery and the laws of motion, they are becoming each others’ mirror. This then makes possible the ping/pong process of elaboration so that more and more energy can course through the one group mind that the two dogs are composing so that ultimately, aggression becomes impossible. In the interim, until we get to that state, my role isn’t to control the dogs but to facilitate the process and here and there by serving as a “guardrail” so to speak in order to keep their collective motion stays on the pathway of elaboration. I should also note that my role is compromised by holding a camera and I’m not able to do some buffering tricks in the background. But the dog’s emotional capacity is high enough to accommodate these limitations and given that dogs are social by the laws of nature, it’s the law that they will ultimately be able to get along no-matter-what.

Books about Natural Dog Training by Kevin BehanIn 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.|
