Hello Human, are you Listening?

presented by
Julie Davies Carter

In today's fast paced, goal orientated and highly competitive world, are we at risk of overtraining the emotions out of our pets? What is the emotional aspect of a behaviour we are wanting to change? We need to slow down and start 'listening' to what our pets are telling us through their behaviours. Julia shares a personal journey of experiences and lessons whilst working with problem behaviours in dogs, cats and horses.
