Why did I name my business, HappyOwnerHappyDog??
During the years as a dog trainer, I became aware many times, that the behavior of the dog was mirroring the behavior of the owner. Not the behavior that you see on the outside, but what was being hidden inside. You could say, the issues that the owners were not willing to deal with, but put up with in their everyday life.
I was fascinated that dogs could pick up on this. So I did more research to see how connected dogs are to humans. I came across the book, Your Dog Is Your Mirror, by Kevin Behan. His theory is that ," Dogs Come Into Our Lives to Heal Us of What We are Not Willing To Heal ourselves of." I have had the privilege of attending his courses, adding more education to what I already had witnessed with my clients.
There is research on how connected our dogs are to our hearts.
There are studies that show that dogs can smell our emotions
Once I realised that our dogs are connected to us, by the beating of our hearts and the smell of our emotions. Why would we as dog owners continue to allow the issues that we bury, to not only run our lives, but be mirrored by our dogs. Giving us and our dogs no other choice but to act a certain way.
I personally have been on my own journey, transforming my life and my health.
These are the tools that I use on a regular basis to support my health and creating a positive life.
Daily, being grateful for things in my life. Either writing in a journal or when I am walking my dogs, I say to myself, what I am grateful for.
