This seminar will cover common behavioral issues, including reactivity, anxiety, and resource guarding, and much more. It will highlight the limitations of current understandings and proposed solutions to these behavioral issues.

The seminar will introduce the logic and basic tenets of the Way of Life™ Method as an alternative way of thinking about and dealing with these behavioral issues in a manner that resonates deeply with dogs.

The emphasis on both theory and practice will empower you to reset your relationship with your existing dog and begin the process of resolving any behavioral issues you could be dealing with.

The seminar will also guide you in beginning a new relationship with a new puppy, dog, or rescue on the healthy foundations needed to avoid behavioral issues from emerging in the first place.

Regardless of where you are with your dog, Way of Life™ Dog Training is dedicated to supporting your transformation.

“The seminar was a tour de force! Souha is an incredible teacher whose passion for the mission is inspiring. She knows the Way of Life Method so deep in her core and it is obvious in how deftly she handled every person and behavior issue. Her message was clear, she was warm and supportive, people were listening and learning and left feeling more on course with their dogs.”
– Cathy C. (Etobicoke, ON)
“Thank you so much for a great seminar today. It was a lot of fun and so very informative. The dedication that each of the participants had toward building a beautiful relationship with their dogs was both inspiring and heartwarming! I was very impressed with the professionalism of the session. I felt like I was back in university! Souha takes her expertise seriously and is able to express it with passion, personal experience, and scientific support. The event was very well planned and paced for both people and dogs. There was a ton of information but so well presented that we were able to absorb it all and ask questions freely. I loved how Souha encouraged participation from the group and made us all feel comfortable at expressing ourselves when it was our turn to ‘perform’ with our dogs. I am eager to attend the next session.”
