Letting the Dog Lead with Chrissy Messick
Dogs are speaking to us all the time - just not in the way we’re often used to communicating. Are you listening to their subtle ways of communicating?
In this episode, Emily and Libby sit down with Chrissy to talk all things training. Chrissy is a dog trainer, and recent rescuer from Summit Dog Rescue. She recently rescued a 3-year old friend named Ginger - she talks about her journey with Ginger, how to let the dog lead their process of adapting to the new family, and the myriad of ways dogs communicate. They talk a lot about how to facilitate the relationship between a new dog and children - how to explain body language and teach your child how to understand that language as well.
You’ll want to listen to this episode if you’re worried about the transition from pandemic home-life to social life, and the ways that might impact your dog. This episode will be helpful for anyone adjusting to a new adoption!
