LIVING WITH BIG FEELINGS
CAN BE EXHAUSTING

Even setting foot outside the door can be almost impossible.

SOUND FAMILIAR?

You've got a dog who struggles with BIG feelings.


Maybe you always keep them safe but they struggle with anxiety despite everything you do.

Maybe your dog really struggles with chasing and would even kill other animals.


Perhaps your dog simply can't relax around other dogs or around people and bark as soon as they see them?

Whether your dog is overwhelmed by excitement and novelty, or they are crushed under the weight of anxiety and fear, this course is for you.

ABOUT EMOTION REGULATION

As we develop, we learn critical skills that help us adapt. Those skills help us overcome our fear of new situations or people so that we aren't still hiding behind our parents at the age of 40.


They also help us manage our excitement and arousal levels, as well as our anger and frustration.


All social species have ways of managing their emotions and impulses so that we can feel safe, explore and integrate harmoniously with others we meet.


Some individuals will need a bit of support in learning and implementing healthy strategies that allow them to thrive.

ABOUT THE COURSE

In this 3-hour webinar, we reflect on the last 20 years of research into emotion regulation, looking at ways we can implement helpful strategies with our dogs.


Although it's not a magic pill, it will help you identify and work on the critical skills that will help you move your dog from struggling in their everyday lives, particularly outside of the home.


The twelve steps of the Roadmap equip dogs with the skills to manage their own emotions. They also give us as owners or trainers ways to systematically support our dogs where they need it most.


Instead of simply surviving, we can help our dogs adapt and thrive.

RESILIENCE

Resilience and emotion regulation go together like pearls and twinsets, fish and chips, sunsets and Instagram influencers...

If you know how to regulate your emotions, then you bounce back from challenges in a heartbeat.

In the past, resilience was seen as something you just WERE. It was some ill-defined quality you just had, like brown eyes.

Now we know the skills and strategies resilient people use when they feel afraid, when they feel worried, when they are really tempted to do something that will get them into all sorts of trouble or when they feel frustrated because they can't get what they want right now.

The same is true for dogs.

What helps some dogs cope with certain events where others can't cope at all?

Why do some dogs seem to shrug off events and just get on with their thing?

And most importantly, when we know WHY, we need to know HOW we can teach this to our other dogs too.

Join me for this 3h webinar where we look at HOW we can do exactly that!
