Science on the Heart as the “Network Brain”

The above is an excellent story which in my view details how through emotional projection (the stronger the bond the more the individual "lets go" and releases into the vicarious experience of watching what another, with whom they're bonded, is experiencing.) Then, the hearts become synchronized so as to establish a common beat. Emotion wants to move, but given the phenomenon of physical memory, unresolved emotion which is created by resistance to emotional expression, can only be moved by first being triggered, and then by synchronizing with the triggering agent. Otherwise in deference to the inherent nature of emotion, the principle of emotional conductivity, only more unresolved emotion will be acquired thus increasing the individual's emotional charge and sense of being disconnected (an internal vibration that is unrequited).

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.
