Welcome! You are going to love this chat with Michael!
Michael Overlie is a Canine-Partnered Coach, Energy Healer, and Author. Michael provides men with the tools to be not only a great dog-dad, but also the best human they can be, by changing their perceived need to be the tough guy, or use their dog as a status symbol. Amazingly, Michael accomplishes this in the most relaxed, holistic, and centered manner. I learned about Michael's mindset as we went through this most interesting chat. Trust me, he is like no one else you have met - come join us!
Speaking of mindset....I follow the chat with a talk on how the mindset toward dogs is progressing (finally) toward communicating and bonding with dogs - essentially a more holistic approach. Is this possible while remaining within the realms of conventional training techniques? I refer to a trainer who, in an attempt to improve the adoption process, encourages "Boundaries" and "Discipline" in the early stages. As much as I promote interacting with a newly adopted dog, as opposed to doing essentially "nothing", instilling boundaries and discipline is not the direction we want to go with dogs over 6 months.
