Think about… #5

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”

– Aristotle

Hello and welcome!

Are you ready for some ego pampering? I think you should know that you are presently a part of an elite few among dog owners. This is by you going through a noise phobia therapy process for your dog. Until now, doing this hasn‘t been very widespread. My theory has been that the reason is, among other, that the process design itself of previous metods have made this necessary endeavor too cumbersome, demanding too lengthy and highly precise dedication, and on top of that has inherent risks that can lead to trauma for the dog, in the worst instances (you can watch videos explaining the difference between established methods and the new Simple Secure Steps process design in the member‘s area).

The development of the Simple Secure Steps process architecture was about analysing, re-engineering, weighing options, designing, describing and offering this new solution to make a simpler, easier and safer method available. It was designed especially for that, and was not a chance happening. However, your success in this process isn‘t guaranteed by offering this new solution that is supposed to be an improvement. You are advised to consider the Six Factors Of Success.
