Coming across the Trust Technique and this course was like finally finding the way of relating to animals I had been searching for my whole life. So many previous "training" methods left me feeling uncomfortable and sad, as if I were betraying the animal and myself. Here, finally, a golden door opens. The course is well constructed and thorough. The explanations of how to use the present moment are clear and easy to follow. The exercises for humans have proved invaluable to me in my challenging life circumstances. Watching James work with multiple animals of various species is SO helpful. The repetition builds it solidly into your brain, and helps you gain a real subtlety and awareness in how you see the animal and its reactions. Each animal shows up a little bit differently. I recommend this highly to anyone who owns, trains, or cares for animals. Actually, if you're a human being reading this, learning this technique just for yourself is well worth it.
