“Hope in the face of hopeless.” – Doc Meek

Wednesday, November 17, 2010. Today I am grateful for our human capacity to learn to be calm even under severe duress. Generally speaking, animals do not have this capability, unless trained. We need self-training or outside training of course too, or at least some practice.

Aggressive Dog MistakesApproximately half of my private dog training caseload involves aggression directed towards other dogs or people. While more difficult than basic or advanced training, my success rate for helping a dog overcome aggression is very high. I practice very measured, systematic strategies to lower dogs overall anxiety and help them learn to be comfortable in situations that currently make them aggressive. I only recommend, and use, positive reinforcement techniques.” – Jeff Millman, dog trainer

We humans have much more control over our emtions, generally speaking, than say, dogs do. We can actually hear Coach Lou Holtz when he says:

“Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” – Lou Holtz, from:

Life’s Little Instruction Book, Volume II: A few more suggestions, observations, and reminders on how to live a happy and rewarding life, by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Thank you, Coach Holtz and Jackson Brown!
