Frequently Asked Questions

TOP 10 FAQs we collected for you. We have received them in the last 10 years by working with small, medium-sized and Fortune 500 companies from various industries.

#1 Why dogs?

A 30,000-year relationship, with new meaning.

The dog is our oldest domesticated pet. It has been living with humans for tens of thousands of years and during this time there has been a relationship between the two species, which is unique in the animal kingdom. “Our best friend” is more effective in interpreting human communication signals than any other animal species.

The dog also has several qualities that are typical in humans (we can say that these are the products of the “common evolution” of several thousand years). Examples include empathy, high level of cooperation, strong compassion and flexible behavior. These qualities have made it possible for the dogs to have a fantastic career in human society and that we “hire” them for so many things.

 

#2 Why does it work?

The unconventional method, the participation of the dog as a “trainer assistant”, motivates participants to openness, active participation and to be present in mind, soul, and body during the training. That is why the learning takes place.

Dogs are honest, they do not respect ranks. Thus, “real” situations arise where one party is certainly not playing a role and it doesn´t allow the other party to do so.

We can experience the elements of an ancient, evolutionary, almost visceral relationship that is also present in human relationships, most of which we are not aware of but are of fundamental importance.

The participants see themselves from a completely different angle. They see situations and human relationships from a totally new perspective. Thus, a strong learning experience an “AHA Experience” is created with deep insights.

Although the dog is ruthless and immediately confronts us with our weaknesses and strengths, we easily accept its feedback because it does in its charming way.

 

#2 How does it work?

Dogs can serve as a mirror to test what kind of communicators, leaders we are, and what we need to develop to become better.

The dog is very honest, it doesn´t try to be polite, does not respect titles or rankings. It cooperates because we have gained its trust and respect. It is enthusiastic because we can motivate it efficiently, and we are interesting for it.

It does not fall for falsehood, because it understands the unconscious nonverbal signals very well. It reflects exactly the way we are and reacts with its behavior.

Like humans, there are different types of dogs that are to be treated in different ways. They may have a bad day or they can get into a stressful situation that needs to be addressed.

 

#3 What kind of clothes should I wear for this training? Am I gonna get dirty?

Clothes in which you feel comfortable to move are recommended.

Because for some of the tasks we may sit on the ground or run a bit. So it’s a good idea to get comfortable clothes which are okay if it gets a bit dirty. Our dogs are clean and do not jump on people.

 

#4 Is there any risk to work with dogs? What is the guarantee that they won´t bite?

 

#5 What if I am allergic to dogs?

 

 #6 What is the maximum number of participants?

 The ideal range is 6-20 people.

 But we always help with a recommendation depending on the desired skill that is to be developed.

 

#7 Is it exclusively outdoor activity?

We keep both indoors and outdoors training.

Our dogs adapt to the site, they are house-trained and behave disciplined an interior space.

 

#8 What are the specific needs of a dog on such training?

 

 

Dogs for the rescue of authentic human connection in the digital age.
