The Gift of Failure with Master Dog Trainer Chris Fraize
I met Chris Fraize almost a year ago after a friend referred we seek his help with training our sweet (and wild) dogs. I met with him for a consultation at his headquarters, Canine Solutions Training Services. Needless to say, it was clear we had A LOT of work to do.
What struck me the most was how Chris pinpointed some of my biggest insecurities and struggles in the session and pointed them out to me with a proverbial laser beam. He has a deep love for dogs and recognizes that by helping their people be the leaders in their lives and families, he is also changing the lives of their dogs.
He is a former standup comedian and has been approached by multiple reality TV networks for his very own shows; but, he has chosen to forgo those opportunities because they did not feel in alignment with his core message.
I am happy to report that Chris has not only helped our dogs to help us, but he has helped me step in to my power to become a better coach, parent and leader across the board in my life. I can't wait for you to listen to this epic conversation and to also take away some great tips for working with your dogs, as well.
Chris has been professionally training dogs for more than 20 years. He specializes in canine behavior rehabilitation and has trained Police K-9 national qualifiers, weight pull national champions, therapy and agility dogs. He has given seminars on canine behavior problems, dog bite prevention, weight pull, dog sport problem solving and more. Chris has been featured on Animal Planet, in Dog Sport Magazine and other national publications, radio, news and television programs. He has won a multitude of awards and certifications for training, judging and participating in canine competition.
