Owning a dog can teach us valuable lessons that we utilize beyond life with a dog. Because of this, Karoline loves to take the familiarity of owning a pet and relating those experiences to emotional well-being and more raw topics on her social platforms and podcast. Her goal is to make new dog owners feel less alone, give hope for those problems people thought they couldn’t solve, and match words to how their dog is acting or how they are feeling. This podcast is catered for those who have been emotionally affected, inspired, and empowered from owning a dog. For all the dog pictures and relatable content, follow @dogmommentality.

    What We Are Working On as Dog Owners & Is Therapy Right for You?

    What We Are Working On as Dog Owners & Is Therapy Right for You?

    This week we are talking to Jess from @handlersandhumans! Jess is a licensed professional counselor who lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, her 8 year old pit mix Dio, and her cat named Bat. Animals and therapy are two of Jess's passions, and she has brought them together in many ways, such as getting certified in animal assisted therapy, by doing equine psychotherapy work, training her reactive dog to become a therapy dog, and now as a coach who supports dog owners struggling with the human side of their training journey. Dio is a reactive boy who has worked hard to earn his CGC and pass the therapy dog evaluations - but made it clear that therapy work wasn't a fit for him, so now he's a happy house dog, loving life and hanging out with his cat all day.

My name is, WHAT? ,

So relatable!!

Karoline does an amazing job at approaching alllll the dog-related topics, as well as issues that we, as dog owners, face from owning a dog. Every conversation really captures the personality of each guest, and Karoline is a great host!

Thanks for all you’re doing!

Karoline does such an incredible job of making mental health an approachable topic and tackling the stigma associated with these tough conversations. I always look forward to new episodes of the Dog Mom Mentality podcast! -Michelle (and Olive) @usthesedays
