In this episode, I’m sharing one simple and easy psychological trick so you and your dog can get in the belief loop of awesome. Tune in for how this one thing can make life for you and your dog dramatically better! I have been using this for years, and it works.
In the episode you'll hear:
- How a child went from always being in detention and disruptive, to an engaged and cooperative student. It only took one change!
- How the belief loop can work for you easily.
- Understanding the cycle of thoughts, emotion, action, results, and belief, and how it applies to your dog.
- Why every dog I have ever lived with has become awesome.

My husband died one month ago today, following a short illness. There have been so many changes for both me and our 18 month old small mixed breed and I am second guessing myself for both her and myself. I have just discovered your podcasts and listen to one a day and today’s was so helpful. I am very much trying to have the mindset that we can do this new life, but your podcast has validated that. Obviously during his illness my whole attention was on him so she had to fit into that, but now we are back to training and your journal will prove very helpful. Thankyou Susan for making a tough journey a little easier.
Thank you for this. It’s like a lifeline into a different, better way of looking at challenges. I will listen to it again and again and draw from it the inspiration and strength I need to conquer my own fears and worries. I want to be awesome for my dog!
Thank you for this episode! I really needed to hear this today–not so much for my dog, who I have the utmost confidence in, but for myself.
“our dogs are always doing the best they can with the education we’ve given them in the environment we are asking them to perform.” When you said this on a facebook live session a couple of years ago it was a defining moment in the relationship I had with my sheltie Angus. Until then, even though I had seen some behaviour improvements and he was doing better with focus, I had told myself so often that “he’s not really an agility dog, he’s too easily distracted, he doesn’t really want to do it” that I believed it. I was on the verge of quitting with him. The problem was him. When I saw it from this perspective it changed everything. It was, and remains my dog training ‘GEM’ moment. Happy to say that Angus is now a Grade 7 agility dog and I’m super proud of what he has achieved. More than that, the way I approach dog training and even deal with challenges at work and in personal life has altered through this simple statement.
Awesome pod cast. I realize I have defined my jack russel beagle mix as fear reactive. I am going to make an effort to see her other great qualities like smart and fast. I gave up agility a year ago when I could not take her anywhere outside our familiar training club without her shutting down. I feel inspired to try some games at home and work on her confidence.
I love this so much. So true with people and dogs. I have gone to owners homes and they already had their dog named as crazy, aggressive, stubborn, etc. Thank you for sharing.
Another amazing podcast. Thank you for the inspiration and insight in to how our beliefs affect what we are manifesting in our dogs. Such an important reminder about changing that mindset. Looking forward to using the new journal you shared. Thank you!
