We spend countless hours training our dogs, but how often do we consider what they have to teach us? Dogs teach us so many important life lessons. They teach us about gratitude, love and compassion, being present, and so much more. When humans bring a dog into their lives, they are most often looking for a companion; what they may not realize is that they are getting a teacher as well.
On today’s mini-episode, Dhru speaks with his good friend Tamar Geller about her philosophy of dog training, which is about improving the relationship between you and your dog, so your dog is not obedient to you; your dog is devoted to you. Tamar also explains the makeup of dogs’ brains and the core needs that dogs and humans share, as well as how dogs give us the most insight into how we actually show up in all of our relationships.
Tamar Geller is a celebrity dog trainer, a New York Times bestselling author, and as Oprah says “A Life Coach for dogs and their people.” Tamar has revolutionized the way dog training is done. The Loved Dog method that Tamar created over 30 years ago is based on the knowledge she acquired as an Intelligence Officer with the Israeli Elite Special Forces, from the respect she gained for the wisdom of nature while observing wolves in the wild, and her devotion to personal growth.

How you start your morning sets the tone for the day. I’m a huge fan of morning routines because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.
What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dhru and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brainpower.
It contains some of my most favorite brain-boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.
