I believe a calm dog is a happy, obedient dog that won't get into trouble.
A dog is a vehicle, you know; a dog is a window to Mother Nature, and that's the closest species we have.
Change takes effort. And the reality is, most people don't want to put in effort to better their life.
Many dogs grow up without rules or boundaries. They need exercise, discipline and affection in that order.
The dog can only become what's in your bubble. The dog is imitating the energy that is in your bubble. You are the source, the feast of energy. If you feel anxious, the dog becomes anxious with you. If you become nervous, the dog wakes up nervous with you.
A lot of people, for example, live an anxious life. They don't realize they have a super-high level of anxiety. So we're gonna work on really writing down how anxious you feel at the moment you wake up. There's nothing wrong with it; the point is you learn to evaluate yourself and regulate yourself.
