Today we had a fascinating conversation with Kevin Behan.
Now today we’re talking about how to train dogs and dog psychology with Kevin Behan!
Who knew there was so much behind natural dog training. For those that don’t know Kevin has worked and trained animals his whole life. He can work with you and your pet’s needs via Skype or phone consultation if you’d like to checkout his website called Natural Dog Training.
He takes a much deeper philosophical and spiritual approach to training dogs. Most dog trainers that are well known like Cesar Milan talk about the notion that animals always seek out an alpha male and look for ways to dominate the rest of the dogs that are in their pack.
Kevin Behan talks about why dog’s behave poorly from a completely different perspective. He talks about how our dogs are a mirror to our own lives and the animal can sense emotional turmoil in your life and seeks discharge that energy from you so that you will feel better or at the very least be able to recognized areas in your own life that are lacking.
Sounds pretty esoteric doesn’t it?
It’s a revolutionary way of dog training that nobody seems to talk about.
Here’s an example that I shared on the show. Kate and I live in a what used to be a sleepy little beach town here in southern California. Over the past few years more people have been moving here because it’s right on the ocean and is a breathtaking place to live.
It’s a vacation destination.
But with that comes more traffic, more noise and more craziness. In recent years the area near our home has got quite loud and we’ve been looking for ways to move and as a result have become increasingly frustrated.
According to Kevin Behan and his Natural Dog Training philosophy, Maggie can sense our frustration and acts out our own frustrations by barking, growling and displaying bad behavior.
He is the author of Your Dog Is Your Mirror: The Emotional Capacity of Our Dogs and Ourselves as well as an older book written a few years ago called Natural Dog Training: The Canine Arts Kennel Program – Teach Your Dog By Using His Natural Instincts
When we realize this is what’s happening we can direct their aggression towards us rather than trying to stop them from helping offset that negative charge we’ve built up.
He offers all kinds of tips about spaying or neutering your pets, how to stop aggression and teach your dogs to come upon command as well as many other natural dog training tips and ideas.
Your dog really is your mirror and can show you things in your life that need improving.

Natural Dog Training is about establishing emotional rapport as a basis for training.
There’s so much emphasis today on giving dogs mental stimulation, physical exercise, play dates, hiking groups, and tons of early and on-going training, but what is getting lost in all this activity is the notion of emotional rapport. Rapport isn’t trained or learned, it is developed. In the canine mind, rapport emerges by being part of a team. I call my method “Natural” because it understands the dog’s nature as a group hunter. A dog doesn’t work for pride in accomplishment, to earn respect from a leader, praise, rewards or even play or positive experiences. A dog wants to be part of a team. Everything in a dog’s life is secondary to this social drive. If a dog doesn’t have rapport, he has problems.
In the canine mind teamwork revolves around hunting, not surprising given that hunting as a group is what makes rapport between wolves possible, and hunting together is how how early man and proto-dog first developed rapport nearly 40,000 years ago. Problem behaviors result when a dog doesn’t feel part of a team. Aggression and phobias are the most acute expressions of social alienation, but it takes many lesser expressions as well. This is why we still euthanize millions of dogs each year even though owners have never been more engaged in the training of their dogs and concerned with their welfare. Natural Dog Training addresses the emotional dynamic of rapport that’s missing in other approaches.
Dynamic is the key term, the how in what the dog is feeling, not the specific activity of what the dog is doing. The dog’s body and mind must integrate into a group and this transpires through a precise mechanics of physical movement and deep seated autonomic processes. Natural Dog Training teaches five core exercises so that a dog’s sense of its individual integrity is predicated on feeling integrated with his group. Rapport is how a dog responds positively to stress and can learn to listen no-matter-what.
Dog biting, dog behavioral issues, why animals behave the way they do etc.
