We can't have that! Kate Sheets, Nutritional Health Coach with Natural Grocers, helps us explore all the amazing--and often delicious--ways we can improve and kick-start ourselves into being the champ we all know lurks within.

misc_none 6:00 PM  -  7:30 PM Public Event - Understanding Alpha Dog: Status and Pack Dynamics in Your Pet Dog Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

It’s a commonly accepted idea that dogs are “man’s best friend.” We give them a special place in our lives and they are, in turn, loyal companions. At the same time, many modern dog owners also believe that they are meant to establish themselves as the “alpha dog” in relation to their pets. Yet the notion that cherished “best friends” are meant to strictly obey our will is something of a paradox. How can we reconcile feelings of respect and even love with expectations of submission and compliance? Is there a valid and compelling justification for establishing dominance over our dogs? Is dominance something dogs actually want and need? Topics include: What is dominance? Explore the truths and the myths Who is the pack leader? Is it you? What is status? Can your dog seek status without dominance? Leader or alpha? Is there a difference? Listen to me! How to communicate with a confident dog to get your desired results. In public; What to watch out for.

You've heard the saying, "You are what you eat." Well, it's also true that you are what you're NOT eating.

We can't have that! Kate Sheets, Nutritional Health Coach with Natural Grocers, helps us explore all the amazing--and often delicious--ways we can improve and kick-start ourselves into being the champ we all know lurks within. Nutrition, New You is a monthly series, so check in to see what's coming up.  Today's subject: Feed Your Brain! Nutrition for Concentration and Focus!
