Pre-order "The Body Language of Dogs" Book by Kevin Behan

Quantum Canine Episode 1 Part II

Kevin and Trisha continue their discussion from the Quantum Canine Episode 1 Part 1. In this section, hear more about participants' experiences at the Rowe seminar, as well as Kevin's interpretation on what their dogs are really expressing. This clip also features Kevin conducting the groundbreaking Pushing Technique, and provides video examples for such terms as 'avoidance behavior' and 'the path of least resistance'.

Clients and readers have also mentioned that they have trouble with the Pushing Technique because their dog doesn't seem to have enough energy for the exercise, or simply seems disinterested. We encourage you to watch this clip in particular, as you can see an example of a dog with such a temperament, and Kevin explains what is really going on with this behavior. To watch Kevin conducting the same type of exercise with a dog with a much different temperament, click here, and see if you can spot any similarities between the two.

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.
