With the first installment of the Quantum Canine show available online, learn what Natural Dog Training really means when it claims ‘dogs don’t think’. It is not a statement based on a dog’s intellectual capacity, and in fact, is quite the opposite. Due to a dog’s strong emotional capacity, NDT believes dogs are actually one of the most intelligent beings on the planet. When NDT says, ‘dogs don’t think’, they are simply challenging the human idea that dogs do things based on reason, and this episode further examines this concept.
Watch the video to find out how emotion is the basis of the dog/owner relationship, and how your dog can be a direct reflection of some of the most complex human experiences. Also hear examples of what participants learned at the Rowe Seminar, and how one woman in particular was introduced to the idea of unresolved emotion.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCyecrX7GMM

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.|
