“In America and in some other cultures of the world, dogs and the other animals we bring into our homes serve as one of our most important links to Mother Nature. We may not even know it consciously, but they are our lifelines to a part of ourselves that we are at the brink of losing altogether. When we humanize dogs, we cut ourselves off from the vital lessons they have been put here to teach us: How to experience the world through the truths of our animal instincts. How to live every moment and every day to the fullest.” Cesar Millan

I thought I’d share this quote from Cesar’s Cesar’s Way. For me, that’s what makes Cesar’s work very ecopsychological, it’s not just about getting your dog to behave well, but a whole philosophy of healing and enhancing our connection with Mother Nature.
