Domestic dogs have mastered our emotional milieu: they feel what we feel. If we are in tune with what dogs feel and work with their nature, we can learn to channel their emotional energy in cooperative ways. Today, one of the nation’s leading dog trainers will explain: the amazing emotional bond that has evolved between dogs and people; what motivates dogs; what their their behavior reveals about us; and how to use this understanding to guarantee excellent inter-species findings. Kevin will share what his decades of training experience has taught him and his profound insights into dog emotions, as well as highly practical guidance on how to effectively train dogs and resolve problem behaviors.

Note: Well-socialized dogs are welcome. Please inform registration if you are bringing your dog.

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.
