Antje Hebel – German Dog Trainer and Book Author, apprenticed with Kevin
I work since 1982 with dogs and their owners. In all that years, training many dogs, I always had questions about aggressive dogs. I was always looking for an answer how to rehabilitate them, and give them their live back.
But no Dog Behavior College, no dog training seminar or dog trainer could ever answer my questions…
During the last 30 years I worked with many dog trainers, and used many dog training methods, but I never saw so happy (problem)-dogs as I saw in Newfane in Kevin’s camp! Each dog there had heavy behavior issues, but they all were attracted to Kevin. I could see and feel how much they trust him and how happy they joined their training schedule and behavior exercises. Kevin had a magnetic influence to their broken souls and defeated emotions.
After few weeks working with Kevin Behan, I started to use the methods of Natural Dog Training on my own dog training program.
Now I know there is NO better way to train a dog! No dog sport, obedience training, agility or clicker training can give a dog what he really needs by nature to fulfill his drives and emotions.Natural dog training has the answer. Thank you Kevin!
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.

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.|
