Episode 7

#7 How to be the Best Dog Parent

In this episode, I welcomed Dr. Peter Dobias, someone I have wanted to connect with for a long time! With his goal to help dog lovers naturally create a healthy and long life for their canine friends, he has amazing experience in supporting dogs holistically.

He also provides many resources – in the form of blogs, free training, and a fantastic range of natural supplements. They help provide our dogs, and us humans, with the best support possible to cope with today’s modern challenges.

This podcast is about so much more than how to raise our dogs in the most natural way possible – to optimise their health and happiness. It is about the special bond between dogs and their humans, and how much we can learn from each other.

Dr. Dobias shares his journey to following his authentic self. In Podcasts #4, #5, and #6, on Optimising Health & Happiness, with Dr. Timo Tastutar and Lance Schuttler, we discuss Dr. Chatterjee’s Key Pillars of Happiness.

I feel that Dr. Dobias optimises these 3 pillars beautifully – having shown, and shared openly, how he has made challenging life decisions to ensure that he is living in alignment.

Key Takeaways:

  • The processes you should go through before getting a dog/puppy and how you can identify the type of dog that may be best suited to you and your current circumstances. 
  • The importance of giving your puppies the right amount of exercise and how it changes as they age. 
  • A number of deeper discussions, including the importance of continued learning and the key lessons we can take from our dogs to live healthier and happier lives.
  • How alignment with our core values makes us better humans, and therefore better dog parents.

I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as we did – and please do leave questions and comments below so that I can see if Dr. Dobias will join us for a part 2! So, sit back, enjoy with an open mind - Stay Curious, and Stay Free.
