Can you imagine being a first-time dog mom with a reactive dog that just won’t listen to you?
This is the situation that first-time dog mom, Paulina, found herself in after adopting a reactive dog named Badi. Paulina struggled to understand Badi and couldn’t figure out why he always barked at other dogs and things outside the window. This caused Paulina to judge herself and to compare her dog with others, creating more frustration for both of them.
Now? Life has completely changed for them both. They understand each other on a much deeper level and Paulina has learned to listen to her dog. In this special episode of Enlightened By Dogs, you’ll hear all about how this first-time dog mom learned to listen and love her reactive dog named Badi. You’ll also get a unique insight into the Brilliant Partners Academy from the perspective of a first-time dog mom.
