Not All Dogs Like Leashes.

Not All Dogs Like Leashes.


People feel in control with the leash.

But they have to be present. Or else the leash will control the person.

Only energy controls the dog.

Walking with the person is a choice.

Walking With A Person Is A Choice.

Conversations With Dog

What makes your dog a good leash walker?

Do you have one of these dogs that pulls you along on a walk? Are you frustrated with that behavior? What have you tried to stop it so far? Or do you not even know where to start? 

Charlie is a great leash walker. So let us ask him what made him be that way and let’s find out from a dog’s perspective the value of nicely walking on a leash, and how to achieve that. Or is it that dogs dislike the leash all together and see no value in it at all?

I know there are so may people that have all sorts of ideas about what it is your dog likes about going for a walk. It’s time to ask the dogs! What is truly their point of view? Or do they have one? Curious? Join Charlie and Suzy for this conversation on leash walking.

What can Animals and Nature Teach us about Being?

Animals live in the present moment, yet they are totally aware of the future and adjust their lives accordingly. They migrate to find food and water, they breed according to the availability of food, in other words, they are totally willing to be on and with this planet.

When I look at how people live their lives, it seems to me that most people lack the ability or desire to know what the planet requires. We overpopulated, pollute and behave in a way that makes sustainability a challenge. What is that? Are people not supposed to be the smartest species on this planet? What is driving us to pay no attention? 

And what can we learn from the animals? What is required from us? Please join Tim and Tanya Bothams and Charlie and myself in this adventure of questions and awareness. Tim and Tanya are amazing when it comes to farming with nature and being aware what the Earth is telling us. Please check their blog here and find their upcoming classes here:

Conversations With Dog

Who Owns Who?

How do our animals perceive ownership? Do they feel owned by us? Or do they own us? After all we go to work to feed them and house them, so who really owns who?

Join Charlie and Suzy for the exploration of an animal’s perspective on ownership. What makes an animal choose you? How do animals see us? And do they define ownership in the same way we do? What is living together from their point of view?

Charlie has a unique way of seeing the world and so we are all curious to what he will say to all these questions!

Conversations With Dog

What motivates a dog to run away from home?

What motivates a dog to dig themselves out from under the fence, or jump over it, or destroy a barrier to run off? Is he being lonely, or unhappy in the place he lives? Is he driven by a sense of adventure? Is he driven by an urge to run, hunt or explore?

Can a dog like that ever be ‘cured’? Is it something that is part his genetic makeup?

Join Charlie and Suzy in the exploration of what created this situation and what if there are possibilities to change it. What contribution can we be to the dog that likes to run off? What can motivate him to stay home?

Conversations With Dog

What is it like to get older from the perspective of the pet?

Is your pet getting older the topic that you dread the most? Pets lives are a lot shorter than ours and often the loss of a pet is a dramatic experience, which many times will stop us from choosing to have another pet in our lives.

Let us find out what getting older actually is like for them. Let us let go of the ideas we have about this subject and our projections about it! Let’s hear Charlie’s perspective on getting older! Join us for this live call that might just change your point of view about what it is like for your pet to get older!

Keeping Kids and Dogs Safe from each other during the Holidays

Most dog bites occur with a dog that is familiar to us. And often children are the one’s that are bitten.

Charlie and Suzy will explore what can avoid these incidents especially in the upcoming Holiday Season. Dogs are often a little neglected in this busy Season, their exercise level might be decreasing, while excitement levels rise in the family! What tools and tips and tricks are available to make sure the Holidays do not end in a bite?

Please join us in the live show so you can ask questions and contribute!


Runaway Joe

Joe is on a leash. Last time he ran free. I could not follow him, he is too fast. I run back to Suzy. Joe was gone. He can’t run fast on the leash.








We met horses. Joe is calm with them, that helped me. Suzy made sure we all gave each other space. The horses followed us.
