Traveling for the holidays? Be sure to check out my latest blog for the Huffington Post on how to put your best foot forward when traveling during the holiday season. Link in bio. #etiquetteexpert#mannersmatter
Etiquette is the observance of good manners and the outward manifestation of respect for the feelings of other people. The foundation of proper etiquette is behavior that is accepted as gracious and polite in social, professional, and family situations, and also helps forge better relationships.
I ❤️ Mondays!¡.

At the root of being civil lies a language, a set of rules, which exists in order for a civilization to thrive. It’s sometimes difficult to know every nuance of this language, but, without a doubt, you know it when you see or hear it. It makes you smile and feel good inside. It makes you feel respected and seen. It gives you hope and a desire to pay it forward. When we hear the opposite or nothing at all, however, it makes us want to crawl into a hole and somehow dampens our belief in humanity. The language we speak of is, “Manners.” And this week, we’re wondering if you could, USE YOUR MANNERS, PLEASE. How is it that manners have earned a new name? They’re now called, “Random acts of kindness.” Someone held a door open for someone else. Someone picked something up they, themself, didn’t drop. And, dare we say that someone said “Thank you” or sent a note after receiving something? By definition, they are now “random,” but actually, they are not random at all. They happen at precise times, when doing the civil thing is an available option. And, they are performed by people with manners. We are all presented with opportunities to use our manners; the only random part is whether or not we do. Using your manners matters.
Louie has drawn blood on several people down to the bone and running out of answers, a trainer reached out for another perspective to get this guy some help.
Today I had a FaceTime session with her and I saw a dog who had impeccable obedience on every level!
However, he was missing the key factors in #packleadership which was causing him to attack people from behind when they would suddenly walk by.
Energy, intentions, understanding Canine body language and owning areas of space are huge to a dog with high #rankdrive like this guy who craves someone who slows down and gives clear communication and directions of #rulesboundarieslimitations .
This dog is allowed to claim the trainers personal space, doorway thresholds, toys, and coming in/out of the crate. All of which links into his aggression issues towards people even if he knows them. He can flip from relaxed to suddenly attacking someone’s leg even if he knows them.
Teaching other trainers and clients some of the basics that can easily get overlooked in this industry is my major passion.
Breaking down body language, teaching how to apply spacial pressure, and understanding energy and a dogs intentions go hand in hand with helping people not to take their behavior personal any longer.
This dog has been to a few known trainers in the industry. This trainer was told repeatedly to put more and more pressure on the dog with an ecollar however nothing about energy and slowing down to listen to the dog through his body language or to understand the dogs values in life.
Today she said,” I’ve been working with this dog for years as my foster and this is the stuff I should’ve started with instead. I️t just all makes more sense.” - powerful words. 💕👌🏼 #caninepsychology#thedogsperspective#boardandtrain#preydrive#packdrive#sohumdogtrainer#norcaldogtrainer#dogpsychology#caninebehavior#dogbehavior#energyiseverything#trainthetrainers#thresholds#mannersmatter#theartofslowingdown

Hello...I know some of us may have to entertain the family this holiday for the first time as newly weds (which can be nerve wracking) or you are like the rest of us, who may have done it before and not enjoyed it. Whatever the case may be, I know we all want to be relaxed and enjoy the day along with our guests.
We will be doing a 7 module tutorial on entertaining. The class will be on WhatsApp. It's at a fraction of the price I charge for a physical class. In addition you can watch it at your convenience and as many times as you want. I will also be available to answer questions.
The beauty of the class is that it is applicable to every occasion from casual dining to formal dining. So whatever you learn you can apply it always.
So send us a dm on 08025656122 now and let us help you have a relaxed holiday.
💰📔✒ Business Meeting Etiquette ✒📔💰 🕐 Do not arrive late. 📱Make sure your cellphone is silent, and try to keep it out of sight. 📄 In case you are planning to use your smartphone to take notes, announce that at the beginning of the meeting. 🗨 Don’t engage in side conversations. 😕 Avoid nervous habits (biting your nails, tapping your foot, twirling your hair, etc.) ❌ Never steal other people's ideas and call them your own.
The originals 👑 The KingsMen killed this look. Who agrees?
