Course Description

For your peace of mind and their well-being, help these amazing young dogs to learn how to live with humans in fun, happy and reliable ways...

Canine science is crystal clear that the first 3-4 years of a dog's life are critical for learning and behavior-shaping. We refer to all dogs under 4-years-old as "pups".

This special online course was added at the request of mindful pet parents, who wanted to learn  critically important behavior shaping, socialization, imprinting, and family bonding during the pup's first 4 years of a dog's life to prevent:

  1. chewing
  2. jumping
  3. nipping
  4. peeing
  5. loosing focus
  6. snarling
  7. anxiety and fearfulness
  8. resource guarding

So we laser focus on these behaviors as well as the basic skill sets and behaviors that all our super-star rescue pups need to learn.

Keep in mind that once the many stages within the 3-4 year developmental time frame is missed, it is WAY harder to help a dog to live happily, ease-fully and trustingly with their human family. Canine research indicates that each month you wait, you can miss vital stages of socialization, imprinting and training opportunities. As a pups's neurology is developing, she will learn at each stage whatever life teaches be there for her and show her how to live calmly, with focus and how to live happily in a human world.

Mindful Pet Parenting™ courses are unique, designed with pup challenges and needs specifically in mind, and are easily accessible any time from a smart phone, tablet or computer. Online courses are filled with audio, visual, and graphics that teach, support, and make the course fun and engaging.

This course is totally interactive and lots of fun for mindful pet parents and their awesome pups!

Lee Kemter

In over twenty years of working with animals, Lee Kemter's passion is now focused specifically on an exciting new way to parent dogs. It's about understand our dog more fully from the perspective of the latest canine neurology and anthropology rather than focusing ONLY on behavior modification using positive techniques or worse... forceful manipulation. Lee's courses teach parents so much about their unique fur baby and how to connect and communicate as a loving parent, that the dog parent will be speaking 'dog' as a second language by the end of the course. They will transform as much as their dog will. She specializes not just in animal behavior but also human personal growth and development, which is essential for parenting and building a solid foundation of communication and connection.
