    EBD088 3 Hacks to Become A Better Partner for Your Dog

    EBD088 3 Hacks to Become A Better Partner for Your Dog

    Kathy has 3 mindset hacks that are going to help you become a better partner for your dog in this week’s episode! What does she mean by “mindset hacks?” Kathy has a few partnership principles that she uses within her lifestyle to fast track or “hack” her way to a brilliant partnership with her furry friends, and she wants to teach them to you! In this episode of Enlightened By Dogs, Kathy dives into a deep discussion about creating more optimism, leaving room for growth (and actually moving toward growing), and a new way to measure success! It’s an extremely enlightening episode, so get ready to move your life into a better place!
     
    The various factors that influence how we think, feel, and respond are very important to be aware of when dealing with others. Blossoming into that better version of yourself is well worth the effort! How to cultivate an optimistic outlook on everything in life! You have to become the person who can before you become the person who does. Success isn’t only about what you accomplish externally, but also what you become internally.   
    “There are so many factors that influence how we think, how we feel, and how we respond in any situation”
    “We already have everything that we need to be brilliant inside of us”
    “Hold onto the belief that you and your dog are good enough, perfect enough, just the way you are”
    “If we don’t believe we can, then that’s true”
    “We can measure success with attainment, not just accomplishment”

    “Experiencing awe causes us, or allows us, to expand ourselves”

    EBD086 Life Lessons from Dogs with Cecile Ruelle

    EBD086 Life Lessons from Dogs with Cecile Ruelle

    You’ve heard Kathy talk about how much we role model for our dogs, but in today’s episode of Enlightened By Dogs, she and her special guest Cecile Ruelle are flipping that notion on its head and showing us how much our dogs role model for us as well! There is so much to learn at any given moment from our four legged friends, and it stands from being present and in the moment all the way to accepting and loving ourselves as we are, and so much more in between! Get ready for a conversation charged with appreciation, realization and pure love as these two ladies unfold the lessons they've learned from their favourite beings on earth!
     
    Flipping the script: Can dogs help us be better versions of ourselves by being our role models? The simple things dogs do that come naturally to them, that we as people can struggle with from time to time. How dogs can pull us out of our busy head[sace and into the present moment in order to enjoy our lives more fully. Your dogs don’t always have to be actively doing something to enjoy your company! Can a dog’s view of you can help you combat your own inner critic? Forgive yourself as quickly and easily as your dog forgives you. Why is it easier to accept lessons from our dogs than it is to accept lessons from other people?  
    “Gosh, How much dogs have to teach us and show us if we are only open to receiving their wisdom”
    “They remind me that it’s a new start every day and that they’re happy no matter what”
    “Having your dogs in your life brings you into the present”
    “They are always in the Now, that’s the way they are. That’s not the way we are, so that’s why we have to learn from them”
    “They can have a big influence on us if we let them”
    “In their eyes, we really are perfect”
    “We’re spreading ripples just by being someone who loves dogs”
    “Sometimes we’re so disconnected from ourselves that we need them to kind of make the bridge between us and us”
    “It’s about making a choice. What do you want to see?”
