Life can get pretty interesting when we mix personalities.

Understanding your dog's personality type teaches you why they behave the way they do. Knowing more about how your dog expresses their personality gives you an insight into what they’re trying to communicate and how. This better communication and understanding ultimately leads to a strong partnership bond!

When personality types come together, they react in different ways. Some combinations are naturally geared towards a peaceful union, while others require a consciously mindful approach to understanding each other.

So, what happens when we combine personality types? In this episode of Enlightened By Dogs, Kathy digs into the challenges and advantages that different personality-type combinations can experience and shares how you can find balance in your partnership.

In this episode:

  • A quick recap of the five different personality types
  • How to find balance using the five-element theory
  • The challenges and successes with each personality type combination
  • What a deeper understanding of you and your dog’s personality could do for your partnership
  • How to find out your dog’s personality type
