Experience how to turn problem behaviors into connection by creating a state of flow
without harsh devices, corrections or bribes by helping your dog feel well on the inside, to
function well on the outside, even under high intensity situations.
All problem behaviors are a function of the body, not the mind. When a dog feels
grounded the body remains calm, the mind remains sensual in all situations from low
intensity to higher intensity.
In today's society, our dogs are constantly stimulated by toys, noise, people, dogs,
daycare, classes, etc. The amount of sensory input is simply too overwhelming. All that
stimulation that the dog inputs into the body must go somewhere. Stimulation is what
causes movement. When a dog moves energy by clawing up on the human for every
greeting, pulling on leash, barking, chewing, guarding, spinning and biting, we label it a
"problem behavior". It is only a problem to us, it is a solution to the dog.
We will teach you how to move well WITH your dog, turning a stimulated state of fear into a
sensual state of flow. Your dog needs to seek "you" as the problem solver. When your
dog moves well relative to you and others, there simply are no problem behaviors.
Learn to begin to heal your dog from the "inside out". They must feel well inside to
function well outside.

An excerpt from his website:
Natural Dog Training is about establishing emotional rapport as a basis for training. There’s so much emphasis today on giving dogs mental stimulation,
physical exercise, play dates, hiking groups, and tons of early and on-going training, but what is getting lost in all this activity is the notion of emotional
rapport. Rapport isn’t trained or learned, it is developed. In the canine mind, rapport emerges by being part of a team. I call my method “Natural”
because it understands the dog’s nature as a group hunter. A dog doesn’t work for pride in accomplishment, to earn respect from a leader, praise,
rewards or even play or positive experiences. A dog wants to be part of a team. Everything in a dog’s life is secondary to this social drive. If a dog
doesn’t have rapport, he has problems.
