Dog Training – It’s All About the Relationship

Your dog’s behavior doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase (or seen it written here): “The dog is always right”? The reason is that dogs are simply responding to what is happening in their environment. And, specifically, how their environment makes them feel.

Whatever your dog is doing, it is ALL about the relationship that you have with your dog. And the relationship that you have with the significant people in your life. And the relationship that you have with yourself.

The obvious relationship that matters here is how you are with your dog. Are you nervous? Rigid? Harsh? Grounded? What are you communicating with your body language? What is your emotional state communicating to your pup? 99% of the time, what your dog is doing is “right” – meaning that your dog is simply taking in all of the information that you’re giving (and primarily the physical and emotional information – NOT the intellectual or conceptual information) and doing what makes the most sense to a canine under the circumstances.

Guess who else’s behavior doesn’t exist in a vacuum? YOURS! You are affected by your self-image and beliefs, and the relationships that you’re having with those around you. One of the biggest challenges that I’ve had over the past 10+ years of working with people and their dogs has been helping the PEOPLE change their habits. I would see, over and over again, how the emotional atmosphere of a person’s life – their stress at work, or in their primary relationships, or their view of themselves – was affecting how they lived their lives. Their habits. And this is important, because…

Your habits are creating your dog’s habits.

A little over 5 years ago I decided to branch out and get some training, as a coach, from the Robbins-Madanes Institute for Strategic Intervention. For me it was an opportunity to not only focus on shifting my own habits of being, but to also develop more skills at facilitating change for the humans with whom I was working. In the time since then, it has truly been an honor to not only be helping people with their dogs, but also to be helping them with the overall quality of their lives.

During that time, it became a passion of mine to work with people on improving their romantic relationships. You may notice that my original site (yes, this existed BEFORE Naturaldogblog) www.neilsattin.com has been revived. There’s a lot of great content there, and more in the works, that’s focused specifically on improving relationships. I’m also about to launch a podcast, called Relationship Alive, focused on helping you have amazing relationships (or easeful breakups – should that be the path that you choose). So stay tuned for more information on that.

In the meantime – think about it this way. Your dog is an emotional creature, picking up on everything that’s happening in the environment and responding from a place of heart – not head. What’s going on in your world? Where is the stress? Where is the tension? Where is the anger? Where is the love? Now look at your dog’s behavior, and ask yourself “how is my dog giving a voice to everything that’s happening in our world together?” I look forward to hearing what insights you uncover.

Halloween English Muffin Pizzas

Halloween English Muffin Pizzas
When I was a kid, I thought english muffin pizzas were the bee’s knees. Then I decided to try to make them as an adult several years ago, but with a Halloween twist. Success! I’ve shared these with you guys a few times over the years, but every year I seem to come up with some small improvements and want to share them again. My kids absolutely love decorating and eating this, and they’re ready in minutes.

2 cups shredded cheddar 
2 cups shredded mozzarella

1 slice provolone  

1 cup pizza sauce

green olives

green pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Placed halved english muffins cut side up on a baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce on each. Top five of the english muffins with cheese shreds. On the remaining muffin, top with strips of the cheese slice, to look like a mummy. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Create jack-o-lanterns, spiders, mummies, and monsters with the olives and peppers!

Giveaway: $100 to Wild Yonder Botanicals

Wild Yonder Botanicals

This post is in partnership with Wild Yonder Botanicals.

If you’ve been reading here for long enough, you probably know that for many years (and up until late 2014 when I started focusing on Bubby and Bean exclusively), I owned and was the head designer for an eco-friendly clothing line called Mountains of the Moon. During that time, I got to meet (both in person and virtually) many other wonderful people and brands who were committed to making quality products that were also natural and sustainable. One of these people was Kat from Wild Yonder Botanicals

Wild Yonder Botanicals is a line of plant-based, handcrafted bath and body items that, in Kat’s words,  create an offering of self care botanical immersion. (I love this!) From oils and aromas to bath soaks to body washes to candles and more, their products contain pure, nature-based ingredients without any synthetics, fillers, parabens or other artificial yuckiness. Their goods are the real deal – highest quality, luxurious, and made with love and care with the utmost respect for the earth. Wild Yonder Botanicals are also 1% for the Planet members (so great!).  And they’ve been featured in all sorts of well-known publications, including the New York Times, GQ, Allure, Vogue Japan, and Men’s Journal.
When Kat asked if I wanted to team up on a special giveaway where one of you would get to spend $ 100 on Wild Yonder Botanicals goodies, I was honored. I truly stand by this brand and their products, and am thrilled to offer you guys a chance to win some of them! (Scroll down to enter.)

As the holiday season approaches and you’re shopping for gifts for loved ones, I can’t recommend Wild Yonder Botanicals enough. I already have several things on my list, especially from their Grateful Dead line (my all time favorite band). They’re actually the first officially licensed line of body care for The Grateful Dead TM. Isn’t that dope?

Thank you again to our friends at Wild Yonder Botanicals for making such incredible products and also generously giving the Bubby and Bean family a chance to own some of their goodies. 

Before I go, I want to to share something that Kat said when I asked her to tell me more about their work process: “We approach our work with a joyfulness, aware we are part of a gathering of collected wisdom passed down through humanity. Prior to time recorded, people have been weaved, inseparably, with plants for healing, self care and love. We honor the work we get to do.” It honestly gives me chills. Keep doing great things, Kat and co! (You can also follow along with the Wild Yonder family adventures on their Instagram.)
