This class offers transformative growth for both dogs and their people and gives us insight into how we relate to the world. You can compassionately communicate with your dog by understanding their behavior and the ten principles of behavior modification. As you work through guided exercises to master each principle, you will see parallels between the process of altering your actions and your dog’s. You will leave with a training plan, tools and handouts to help you create a deep sense of connection with your dog and everything else around you. Please do not bring your dog to class.
