This webinar was fantastic. Thank you Grisha for creating a safe place for dog trainers to unpack the plethora of "add on things" that accompany working with dogs and their owners. It can be quite a challenge to navigate especially considering many schools and academies do not address the additional components we encounter in this career. I gained some valuable insight in helping myself have the internal conversations with my "Bob", especially regarding how I feel when I receive negative reviews, or am faced with a client who is really clinging to an aversive tool. Before this webinar, the second especially made me feel like such a failure. I understand the importance of boundaries better, for not just me, but also my clients and for the dogs we are here to help!

This webinar has such important information for every person, especially those of us who work with people and their dogs. Andrew does a masterful job of showing us what empathy means, especially when directed at ourselves and the other people we often find it most difficult to empathize with. Thank you!

Love Working With Dogs? Learn to Protect Your Passion and Well-Being

In this webinar, Andrew Hale helps us discover the true importance of providing a nourishing environment for our own emotional health. He guides us through how to build healthy professional self-esteem and how to protect our well-being with professional boundaries .

Andrew also looks at the importance of supporting emotional safety for our clients while we help them become more aware of their dogs care and support needs. We can often get best outcomes when the client feels heard and, importantly, safe when working with us. Their emotional experience of caring for a dog with challenges needs our support just as much as the dog does.

I adore the way that Andrew Hale weaves emotional awareness with skilled dog training and care, and I'm excited to have him sharing his framework for understanding dogs here at the Academy; it's a perfect fit for the way we teach here.

This webinar is for you if any (or all) of these resonate:
* I want to learn some new ways to feel at peace when working with dog behavior/training clients.
* I have sometimes supported the care needs of others at my own expense.
* Sometimes it's a struggle to maintain healthy self-esteem.
* I find it difficult to protect myself with healthy professional boundaries.
* I love learning about ways for people to thrive (including myself)!
* I'm not sure I'm "enough" or maybe I don't even want to be a professional dog trainer and more - I experience Imposter Syndrome, burnout or compassion fatigue.
* I want to ensure that my clients' care and support needs are recognized and supported in a way that's safe for everyone.
* I want to support my clients as they learn to become more aware of the needs of their dogs.

Recorded January 2023.

  • Suitable for professional dog trainers, behaviorists, shelter workers, and anyone looking to expand your knowledge and skills to support dogs professionally.
