I have been reading pets for more than ten years now and would love to help anyone who has issues concerning their pet. A bit of background on me you should know. Since I was a child, I could read animals and of course brought every stray home trying to convince my parents we needed to save them. This did not always work so I did what I could. When I began reading pets for people, I would find, especially with dogs, that most dogs did not understand why their beloved owners did not understand them.
So I felt the need to go further into understanding dogs on a psychological level which led me to finding a trainer that taught K9’s, or as most people know as Police Search and Rescue and service dogs. I studied for 2 years learning the behavior and thought processes of K9’s.
I now realize why dogs don’t understand humans as much as we like them too. Dogs think much different than humans. Dogs live in the moment and don’t worry about what happened in the past, or worry about the future. Also, K9’s think a little differently than regular pets. A pet is just happy to have a home, just laze around the house and eat, play with their owners and of course sleep. The difference is that K9’s truly need a job and have a life purpose similar to humans.
The difference between a pet and a K9 is basically their prey drive which leads back to their primitive DNA factor. I find that most people who have uncontrollable dogs are those that truly have a high prey drive and just want a job no matter how small. In essence, they need a sense of purpose. When I get a call from a person who is frustrated that their dog will not listen or obey, I find that the owner does not understand the energy of their animal. I then do what most people refer to as the “Dog Whisperer.” This is the process in which I teach the owner how a dog thinks so that they can become one with the energy of the dog.
Dogs have a natural order in a pack whether it is in the wild or at home. Someone has to be either an Alpha or Pack Leader. This role needs to be the person in a domestic situation. The rest of the family then follows the progression downward. The dog must be at the bottom so that no one is hurt and so that the dog will listen to everyone in the family. If we do not have this order in place, we do not have a happy dog or family.
