If you watch many episodes of The Dog Whisperer, you’ know he often brings up ‘energy’ and its impact on your pet.
My own dog is a mix between an Australian Cattle Dog and Australian Shepherd, which makes for a high-energy, very smart dog. Pepper also loves to run and bark, tends to nip at times, and shows mostly the breed of a cattle dog.
So watching the many episodes of The Dog Whisperer, I took stock of my own energy of myself. I tend to be a big high-energy at times, almost hyper. I often find myself tense, and not really having any reason to be tense, I just am.
So I decided to start being mindful of my own energy around my dog, and learned to relax more. I take a deep breath and release that energy, and within moments, I noticed a change in my dog. She relaxes as well, and even listens better.
This also got me thinking on how my energy affects other people and even my home. One friend described my house as ‘hugging’, where she felt the house envelopes her in this blanket of love. Other guests also describe how my home has this wonderful vibration to it.
What are your thoughts- What sort of energy do you give off? Does this permeate your home and family?
