What is confidence in a dog? Why do we need it? How do we grow it, and why should we even care? Confidence is a topic I’m very passionate about, and there are three things that are big contributors bringing out the best in a puppy or dog.

In the episode you'll hear:

  • What my dog Decaff taught me about confidence.
  • How confidence replaces stress and anxiety.
  • About my once in a lifetime dogs.
  • How our beliefs control our thoughts about our dogs and how our thoughts control our actions.
  • Why today can be your starting point!
  • The strategy you can adopt to get to where you want to be with your dog.
  • My promise to Momentum’s four puppies about marbles.
  • About emotional states and our dogs.
  • Why to play small to play big.
  • How you can see lack of marble building behaviour in performance sports like agility.
  • About defining the behavior you see by what is real.
  • How much the language you use about your dog matters.
  • Why we want our bag of marbles overfull.
