Hello my friends! 🥰 Some days ago I heard the following quote from a loved one: “what can’t be solved, solved is”. I think most of us have a difficulty on enjoying a problem free life (also known as a happy, balanced life). We were taught at some level that life can’t be right without some struggles before getting to the prize. We’ve transformed our lives into battlefields, because we need to be fighting (= struggling, in pain, sad, mad, name it) in order to get somewhere or something we want to. However if you don’t label unpleasant situations as problems, you’ve got none of them. It’s all about facing things from a neutral emotional viewpoint. You are both the poison (making everything into a problem) and the antidote (having solutions upfront). Have in mind that the way you enjoy your journey is thousand times more important than any prize. First, because you will spend much more time on an ongoing journey towards many goals throughout life. Second, because no prize will be worth a unhappy life, ever. Third, a balanced journey, both inner and outer will lead you to wherever you set yourself up to. Happiness is waiting for you and the good news is you don’t need to wait for it! Love you! 🥰 #neula#neulathedog#neulasadvice#dog#pets#doglover#positivethinking#dogs#perros#hund#hond#doggy#dogstagram#inspirationalquotes#cane#barcelona#instadog#petsagram#ilovemydog#dogsofinstagram#naturephotography#cachorro
🍇"I had a jamtastic weekend!"🍇
We went camping this weekend! Vayga did so well, even when a dog was running and barking at the river. Me and my family used to use aversive training tools and methods, so when I started learning more about dog behaviour and science-based training, it was a huge adjustment for everyone. The results from using an e-collar appear to be immediate, but they actually suppress behaviour instead of addressing the cause and modifying the behaviour. Suppressing behaviour has a lot of side effects. For Vayga, some of the side effects are mild resource guarding, anxiety, and she really lost her spirit. Fortunately, she is getting her spunk and character back! The rest of the family is starting to see progress with her training. When the dog was barking by the river, my dad started giving her treats in the grass and she responded really well. Instead of pacing, crying, and barking, Vayga focused on snuffling in the grass for treats. She could engage in a relaxing activity in the presence of a huge trigger. A month ago, the situation would've looked very different. Vayga had also started experimenting with new behaviours! Since I taught her to cross her paws, she has been seeing what else her paws can do to get a reward. One behaviour involved her velvet paws was berry cute, so I reinforced it. Who's teaching the tricks now? I will introduce her new trick in a future post. What has your dog achieved over the weekend? 🍇
