BREATHE! It's Good for You (And Your Dog)

with Suzanne Clothier


This webinar is the second in the Your End of the Leash series, which focuses on helping handlers become the best possible partners for their dogs.

No matter how smart your dog may be, no matter how much he knows or can do, he still depends on you as his partner.

Would you want a partner who was tense with gritted teeth and tight breathing? Or would you prefer a relaxed partner, whose movements and expression showed enjoyment in working with you?

This webinar focuses on the simple but oh-so complicated basic of life itself: breathing. We’ll cover:

  • Breathe! Why in and out is the best choice
  • Breathing as communication – what you tell your dog (maybe without meaning to)
  • Effects of breathing on learning & performance
  • Observing breathing patterns in yourself and others
  • Coaching others

You’ll learn practical techniques to help yourself (and your students) create greater awareness about breathing, along with ways to practice here, there and everywhere.

Bonus: what you learn in your quest to become your dog’s best partner turns out to be helpful in the rest of your life! Breathing awareness can help you relax, reduce tension and stress, and understand how your breathing can affect others.
