Enlightened Dog Training By Jesse Sternberg
There is a secret language that dogs use, and you can learn it to understand and communicate with your pet, help resolve common behavioral issues, and transform your dog into a calm, intuitively obedient companion you can share your life with.
Sharing his complete approach to raising and relating to your pet in an enlightened way, meditation teacher and master dog trainer Jesse Sternberg reveals the principles of the secret language of the animal kingdom and offers commonsense yet unique solutions to everyday canine behavioral problems. Using case studies that resonate with every pet owner and dog lover, he shows how dogs want to behave for their masters and how they communicate nonverbally using postures, angles, and subtle gestures of body language. He explains how most of our pets’ issues arise from intense feelings caused by the environment, ourselves, or prior conditioning and how these emotions are acted out by the dog, hence its jumping, lunging, biting, or chewing.
Combining mindfulness teachings with animal psychology, the author shares training exercises and powerful meditative practices to do with your pet as well as on your own to help build a calm and peaceful mindset for both your dog
and yourself, so eventually you will find yourselves aligned in every situation and gracefully master even the unexpected ones. He explores unique training techniques for soothing anxiety, healing neuroses, overcoming aggression issues, and transforming tension into harmony. He teaches you how to communicate nonverbally with your dog using the signals dogs use with each other and details how to address problems with resource guarding, territory, leash training, and a host of other issues as well as the unique situations that can arise with children, puppies, and aging pets.
Helping you cultivate empathy, awareness, and confidence to become the “peaceful alpha” your dog craves, this guide shows how to strengthen your human-animal bond, communicate with actions, read body language, and command with respect and love.
