thehealingpack Today I was also teaching Mija how to walk on the figure 8 nose lead. By taking the time to teach Mija how to use this new leash set up, I'm actually able to put less pressure on Hannah to behave any type of way because I'm not focusing all of my attention on her. So in this process mija gets some practice working on a new leash and her calm focused energy in turn influences Hannah.
There is nothing more powerful than letting dogs teach each other.
As the human we can always try to mimic the way a pack would function in nature but at the end of the day it's good to let the dogs help each other out. Its instinct. I find that this creates the most positive growth in dogs. #thehealingpack #dogtraining #dogwalker #packwalk #packleader #packwalknation #dogoftheday #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #instadog #instagood #losangeles #brentwood #pitmix #boxermix #labrador

thepetwhisperers We love walking large packs. But, when we are working on specific behaviors, it helps to cut the size down a little to keep focused on the individual dogs. So proud of these pupss, they really pulled it together on this adventure. After all, it's not the size of the pack that matters, it's how you use it 😎 #dogpack #packwalk #packleader #packwalknation #thepetwhisperers #cagefreeboarding #mustlovedogs #happydogs #dogparty #patience #harmony #trulycagefree 30min

thehealingpack Formally introducing Hannah (not sure why I said her name with an accent ) She did so well in my crew today, I was very proud of her!
For only having been with her owner a little over two months now she certainly was willing to give me a lot of trust in introducing her to new dogs and this new experience. When you have a dog who is nervous it's all about letting them know that you're in control of the environment and that you understand when they are stressed and youll make accommodations when you can see signs of stress. So many people want their dog to be perfect immediately and they're not thinking about who their dog is in this moment and what they're capable of today. By taking baby steps and creating realistic achieveable goals for Hannah (existence around other dogs first before something more intimate like play) I helped create a very predictable and comfortable routine for the new dog. #thehealingpack #dogtraining #dogwalker #packwalk #packleader #packwalknation #dogoftheday #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #instadog #instagood #losangeles #brentwood #greatdane #labmix #pitmix #boxermix #staffy #labrador #chihuahua #shitzu #terriermix #chihuahuamix #toypoodle #wirehaireddoxie

thehealingpack Phase one of introducing a new pack member to #thehealingpack starts with the car ride. I make sure I have a calm balanced pack in my vehicle who can help influence the new pack member with their calm energy. I choose my most reliable dogs to help acclimate the new dog - not only do I need them to listen and respect me when I give space, but I also need them to show the new member that I call the shots. I create an environment that leads to a dogs success by taking it slowly, choosing compatible dogs and taking the time to make sure the new dog is comfortable. She needs to know I won't put too much pressure on her when she is nervous, that's how you build trust. Be a calm fair leader for your dogs. #dogtraining #dogwalker #packwalk #packleader #packwalknation #dogoftheday #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #instadog #instagood #losangeles #brentwood #pitmix #boxermix #labmix #labrador #greatdane #staffy 3h
  •   alicenmae Thanks for the tips. I'm trying to follow in Cesar's footsteps here in Kansas, and it looks like you know what's up. 3h
  •   thehealingpack @alicenmae any time! We try to include a bit of training in each of our posts so we can help educate as many people as we can. The more of us out there practicing calm assertive energy, the more balanced dogs can exist. @cesarsway 3h
