Podcast #11 - Conscious Communication in Dog Training w/ Laura Neal

Hello and Welcome!

Date: February 26th, 2023

Host: Rhonda Bilodeau

Guest: Laura Neal

Laura’s introduction - Communication Queen

What did you learn about communication growing up.

Studying Buddhism and spirituality in college 

Accept myself and the differences she had with other people 


Benefits to us for communicating


How can you start Communicating this way? Pattern of communicating? Wasn’t easy for her? 

Terrified to start

All about the Delivery - pause - tap into your heart

Take responsibility for your feelings


New wave of dog training is emotions

What would it be like to do this? What would it feel like? - no story with this suggestion. Easier on the person. 

We don’t learn how to communicate it affects us as dog trainers 

Is someone going to be able to receive my feedback or not?  May. Not bring it up and be in a close relationship with that person. We don’t have time for the relationships that are going to drain us.

Attract more people that will step up- become yoru highest self.

Releasing energy so it doesn’t bubble up

Victim vs predator

Settled chaos Paying you for yoru honesty - 

People fall off

Afraid to hurt someone else’s feelings

Empowering other people to have their own boundaries

We aren’t going to hurt them if we tell them the truth

Open and vulnerable yourself

Armor up- 

How our stuff gets in the way 

Practicing communication - it’s a practice
