This really is a conversation we should all have all the time- how do we build a heart centered, meaningful relationship with our dogs? It’s what we all want, yet we take for granted that it automatically exists, and then feel bad when it doesn’t. Help is here! Thank you, Kathy

I’ve been listening to Kathy’s podcasts for 4 months and making good progress with my poodle. We are so much calmer and happier following her program. And today I listening to the Over Arousal episode and I got over arousal in a completely new way. I realized that every morning when my dogs and I...Read full review »

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to Kathy for this podcast, as it has changed the way I work with dogs and live with mine. I am a behaviourist/trainer from the UK and have had a lot of anxiety around walking my own dog due to other people’s reactions and reactivity which unfortunately fed back to me and then...Read full review »

Thank you, thank you!!!These podcasts have answered so many questions for my husband and I. We have been so hyper focused on training we forgot to stop and just be with our wonderful dog...we forgot to just breath and be a family. We can’t wait to learn more from Kathy and our pup!
Onapaw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/19
When I started listening to Kathy’s podcasts, I knew this was something very different. It was a bright, fresh perspective to try connecting and listening to my dog, rather than try yet another training method. I loved how that felt (and so did she!) so I joined the Brilliant Partners Academy,...Read full review »

Hi Kathy, I've been listening to your podcast and just like to say big thank you for sharing your expertise. I applied what I've learnt and there has been some improvement in my Akitas dogs behaviour just by connecting with them. There are a lot to learn and revisit your podcast but I...Read full review »

Kathy breaks down the old system for dog and puppy training and discusses how bad these techniques were for our dogs. She provides humane ways to bring out the best in our dogs. Respecting your dog feelings and personality develops a lasting bond.
rlh543 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/19
The holistic approach that Kathy teaches is a refreshing change to so called dog training that we are all familiar with. She gives so much and is totally committed to getting her message across to those who will listen. Her Brilliant Partners Academy helped me and my dog learn to work together...Read full review »

I have just begun getting to know Kathy and am very intrigued with her honesty and her approach based on a trusting, loving relationship with your dog. I believe this will guide me to further my knowledge and close some of the gaps with my dog. I know that my dog and I are on a learning journey...Read full review »

What an easy way to calm myself and my sweet boy. I’ve been practicing breathing, only for a couple of breaths. After listening to Kathy, I understand how important it is to do this more intentionally. My pup has been very reactive to basically EVERY single thing that moves. I said ‘has’...Read full review »
Golden Boy 747 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/19
I’m loving this podcast which is less discipline specific and more about being a good partner to our dogs. I finally figured out what BP means and I cannot wait to get more information about being in partnership with my canines.
Happy it's above freezing! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/19
I love this podcast. Kathy is inspirational and informative on our relationships with dogs. She always makes me think. I only wish I had found her sooner. If you have dogs - give her a listen. Especially if you have reactive dogs! You won’t be disappointed.
Janes Mom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/19
This view on building a relationship with our dog is the best, since listening to these podcasts and workshop on Facebook we have found our relationship of trust and understanding has grown. It’s amazing that our dog looks to us for this trust that we are now building with her. Thanks Kathy
Luna Pup via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/12/19
Every time I listen to an episode from Kathy - I learn such new and valuable information. I’ve been so stressed with my dog and I want to have a great and happy partnership with her. And I know I will - thanks to Kathy and The Enlightened Dog podcasts.
SJR21 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/12/19
Kathy’s pod cast is the best and episode 55 is amazing! Her ideas on relationship with our canine companions are really supported by great results and now also by developing science! Kathy and Sue make a winning combination for an informative and fascinating program.

I just love podcast #48-AStress Reset I love Kathy’s analogy about the stress and the cup Runneth over. I had breast cancer and have done a lot of research and they say the same things regarding stress and your cup runneth over and getting cancer so I can relate. All her podcast and class are so...Read full review »

I just found this podcast and listened to my first episode. I am so glad to hear about ways to form strong partnerships with dogs that don’t rely on treats all the time. I can’t wait to learn more. This is going to be a podcast that is on my “bing list” until I get caught up!
StevieB.. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/19
I love the message and her voice is soothing 👌🏻

Hi I would like to say thank you very much for the start to a new life with the two collies. We have work to begin when we start out walking again.

We’ve received 30 inches of snow in the last 4 days. My dog and I are stuck inside more than usual. This podcast and her training gives me ideas and tools to deepen my relationship with my dog, a 16 month Mini-Aussie, and makes use of a snow day. I love her approach to building a partnership...Read full review »
Reelwomen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/19
I love Kathy’s loving, nonjudgmental approach to building a relationship with your dog. It’s not so much about training, but about how to best relate to our furry family members. Definitely worth a listen!
Jacks56 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/18
This is one of my favorite podcasts. I always learn so much from Kathy. Her empathetic approach to life with dogs makes sense and helps me open my heart to all that is between my dogs and me.
CarolC64 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/18
this is the training approach you’ve had rolling around in your mind for years, but couldn’t or haven’t got around to, putting into words.
heymo2632 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/14/18
Kathy’s insights are amazing. I love her programs. Having a partnership with my dog is so much more rewarding than looking at my dog as just a pet.
H.Deb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/18
If you are looking for a different perspective and approach to your relationship with your dog then Kathy has the knowledge and wisdom to help you understand your dog and teach you how to love building a great partnership with your dog.
Tribe-of-six via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/18
I loved this podcast as an awareness and reminder. I do not have children but immediately connected the attitude of "no pressure" with support and appreciation of simply who you/they are. Loved it. Thank you . I clearly remember pulling my car over in Laconia NH as the dog sled...Read full review »

Will definitely be looking at situations with my dog through different eyes.❤️
SueMMc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/18
Once I got past the American enthusiasm I discovered a mine of really useful information about what my dog wants and how to work with him to achieve harmony in our home. I think that this can help everyone who is prepared to listen and put her suggestions into practice. Good luck
Wosny via Apple Podcasts · France · 09/10/18
I am starting this series, but so far it has been a excitingly fresh take on building a relationship with your dog! Really excited to start using this knowledge with my new pup!

What a relief to know I am on the right track to not destroying my relationships with my dogs. With all the stress we have been through I have felt like a failure.

Love Kathy’s style and simple breakdowns she provides of her methods. Very useable and easy to understand by humans.
Mom of 3 ACDs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/18
Kathy you made the recall so easy. I never realized how stiff and frazzled I was to get my dog to come. And to think my dog would come without a bag full of treats. Thank you, Thank you.
OMGOMOM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/18
Kathy Kawalec is a teacher, who with her loving and supportive words & methods invites us to be enlightened by our dogs!
