The Way of Life® Method:
How to Heal Your Relationship with Your Dog and Raise a Sound, Strong, and Spirited Companion (At Any Age)

THE METHOD

Even the most loved dog can drive their owner crazy with behavior issues. Getting to the root of your dog’s problem behavior starts with looking at your way of life.

Drawing on almost two decades of experience dealing with common canine behavioral issues, dog trainer and relationship coach Souha Ezzedeen sees these issues as symptoms of relationship trouble. In The Way of Life Method, she offers a unique and revolutionary framework for rearing dogs and helping them recover from behavior issues kindly and permanently.

This radical and intuitive new approach is geared to dog owners who are willing to rise to the task and develop a deeper understanding of who their dogs are at their core.

Having owned rescue dogs all my life, I consider myself a fairly proficient dog owner but I wish I had known the wisdom shared by The Way of Life Method. After reading this book, I feel incredibly empowered to build a solid relationship with my newest challenge, a 10-year-old mini Aussie who came to me with many issues. Whether you are a seasoned dog owner, a new dog owner, or simply an animal lover, read this book. You will learn so much. It is a fascinating read, full of the author’s firsthand experiences with dogs and plenty of scientific backing.

The conventional ideas of dog training are exclusively focused on reinforcing and modifying behavior, and they are quick to label a dog’s behavior as characteristics of its personality, breed, or past experience. This book takes the dog out of the behaviorist petri dish and challenges people to build a relationship with their dog in a way that aligns with a dog’s nature and instincts. The result is that you no longer have to teach the dog what to do or not to do, the dog just knows.
