Philosophy: In a culture obsessed with dominance, more power may seem like the last thing you want to give your dog. But empowerment is actually an efficient, effective way to solve behavior problems. When you remove obstacles in the way of learning and give dogs a way to meet their needs, their 'misbehavior' disappears.

Yes! This definitely applies to everyone, including dogs, humans, and even ourselves.

One of those important needs is control over our own safety. That's why I developed BAT and why I'm teaching the workshop "Don't Just Grab the Pussycat," which is about consent for physical contact in all species. Upcoming seminars are in Portland and Eugene, Oregon next month. I also have an online recorded webinar.

The "Don't Just Grab the Pussycat" seminar discusses a range specific tools for consent with vet care and grooming to interactions between humans.

Thanks for pointing this meme out, Jennie!
