Change emotions to change behavior

Eli found me first, he adopted me wagging his tail and conquered my heart just by his sight. I thought i knew what to be alive meant, but he does better, he lives in the NOW... I’m in the process of learning ‘The NOW’ :)

Then Patch adopted us all, with his big smile, who says dogs don’t have expressions, they just cannot read dog.

Sharing moments of reflection, some while ago after assuming things should be like I heard they had to be, after realizing things are simply easier as they were showing them to me, that was a 24/7 work of inner growth, often with some misunderstood and mistaken for stubbornness or worst.

I got doggily inside me long time ago, really long time ago.

My dogs are my masters, and the feeling of copying them I think is the way I’m gonna do this, I can, I am, I’m gonna be as stubborn as they are with me to make you understand the way of your loved furry, for paws brothers and sisters, communicate and create positive bonding and a real sweet home for all the family, humans and dogs.

Always learning

I'm always looking to learn more about dog behavior and training technics. I had the chance to travel in Europe and the United States where I met a lot of great scientists and animal behavior experts.
