Do you ever feel like you need superpowers to manage everything in your life? This episode goes deep into how to be our dog’s superhero!
We fulfill the role as a parent, a teacher, a coach, a dog partner in activities that we do together, like dog sports, therapy, and work.
We are our dog’s friend and companion, and we are our dogs' student.
That is a lot of hats to wear!
