Gain More Confidence in You and Your Dog
Are you lacking confidence in yourself and your overall life? Is your dog training and relationship struggling as a result of your confidence level?
In this video, I teach four ways to build more confidence in you and your dog.
Dog training is best when you as the handler are confident in your skills, and you can help your dog overcome stresses and, therefore, grow.
This clip is from my UPX Live Zoom coaching session on gaining courage and confidence for you and your dog.
As a certified professional dog trainer and high-performance coach, I believe it is essential to understand that how you show up personally affects all aspects of your life and your dog’s life, including building confidence and a better relationship with your dog.
From my experience, having a good coach helps me overcome many serious struggles in my personal life and in my overall professional life, I truly and fully believe in combining personal development with all we do…ESPECIALLY dog training. They need us at our best so they can be at their best.
Dog training and high-performance coaching is a super-powerful combination as I have found out this year in my Unleashed Potential Experience “UPX” Live Training & Coaching Program. It’s much more than just dog training and behaviour shaping, it’s training & personal development for YOU and YOUR dog.

4 Ways to Gain More Confidence in YOU and YOUR DOG
1. Increase your skill: Competence builds confidence.
Increasing your skill level is very important when you have a goal, and you’re not confident to do it. It’s showing up, having a little bit of understanding and just going to do it. Therefore, learn that new skill and then apply it. Tell yourself, you’re going to crush this fear, and you’re just going to do that one thing to move forward, and you do that. Even that one thing.
2. Don’t wait for a reason. Get a coach, take action and gain some momentum.
Please don’t wait for a cause in a sense; you have goals, you have dreams, you have visions, whether it’s for your dog or in other aspects of your life. This vision can be for your finances, your relationships, your business, health, hobbies. So, confidence isn’t something that usually comes, right? We have to grow. You have to kind of say, okay, how do I get this? A good coach will help you get clarity and hold you accountable so you can gain momentum.
3. Set the intention and permit yourself.
I’m just going to be more confident because I’m stuck. And I’m going to quit being stuck in the mud. Give yourself permission, set the intention and do it. I know that’s a big statement, and I know how hard that is. I have done it. That’s taking a step forward to crush that fear.
4. Have faith! Know who you are, where you came from, and what you want.
Think, “I know who I am and I know where I have been.” Sometimes it is uncomfortable. Sometimes you’re going to seek that comfort. So that’s why maybe you’re staying in the comfort of your own home or not pushing the envelope because of distractions or issues with a dog or whatever it is. A lot of us look to credentials. You may think, “I don’t have the credentials, so I can’t do that.” “I don’t have the certification or the course…I don’t do that.” Don’t stress about that stuff. You have to learn. Life is learning. So by knowing who you are and knowing what you want and then deciding, you’re just going to do it. You’re going to crush that fear.
