In last week’s ezine, I was SO excited to invite you to my brand new Free Class where for the first time, I’ll reveal the H.E.A.R.T. System. It’s the formula I use to solve problems with animals to get the remarkable results I’m known for, and I want to teach it to you so you can solve problems with your animals too.
People flocked to the website to find out more and to sign up for the class…
…Imagine my horror when I discovered that after the huge amount of time, energy and effort setting this all up and preparing, that folks couldn’t sign up because the optin links weren’t working right!
I’m so sorry, I somehow made an error with the html code. Oops!!
It took a bit of work to sort out (note to Self: delegate these tasks to someone who’s good at them!), but the problem is fixed now.
Please forgive the goof, and be SURE to Sign Up for the class (see below).
On a different note, Einstein lost his name tag last week while he was having fun excavating and exploring under our deck. And it made me think:
Wouldn’t it be cool if everyone could talk with animals? When we found a lost animal, we could simply ask them where they live or who their people are… We could teach them their address and phone numbers like we do our children!
Then when/if they got lost, they could just ask someone to phone home for them. (Maybe that’ll be Einstein’s next trick to learn… how to use a phone!)
For now, I went to Petsmart like other normal doggie parents do, and got him a new name tag. While I was waiting in line, there was a father with his 4 young children and 2 young beagles.
The boy dog, Toby, was barking, lunging, dragging the kids across the floor, and generally being obnoxious to other people and dogs in the store. He got so excited that when his sister got in his way, he snapped and attacked her!
The children kept petting and stroking and talking to him to try to ‘calm him down’. Unfortunately, their actions only told Toby that he was doing the right thing and to keep it up. And his behavior escalated to the point of more serious aggression.
I was witnessing a tragedy in the making. Toby is learning that his people want him to be aggressive, to bark at strangers and snap. Later on, he’ll likely become a red zone, dangerous dog… all because of a misunderstanding between him and his humans. And their mistake may wind up costing Toby his life.
The problem isn’t in their intention… it’s in the system they are using to train him.
Animals want to do a good job… but if the system of training, communication and management isn’t right for them, then things don’t work right.
In Toby’s case, his people are systematically and consistently rewarding the very behavior they don’t want.
All successful animal people have systems. I want to show you mine, the unique approach I use to get the extraordinary results I get with my clients.
This week on The Real Dr Doolittle Show, we switched it up a bit. Cathy Rivers of www.bighorsedreams.com interviewed… ME! We recently met at a Kendall Summerhawk event, and she wanted to know more about my system for solving problems with horses and other animals. So we recorded our conversation. Be sure to listen, we had a blast.
Remember, animals are sentient messengers here to help you learn, grow and heal. You can learn to hear their voices, and when you do, it will change your life.
Much love to you and your furrkids,
