Hi, I’m Kathy Kawalec. I’m fluent in dog, human and heart.

I believe that our dogs connect us to the heart and soul of what REALLY matters.

I believe that when we have a brilliant partnership with our dogs, our whole life is brilliant!

I’ve always had a deep resounding connection with dogs, and I’ve devoted my life to being their voice in a world where not many are TRULY listening.

This passion is fueled by my own childhood experiences of being voiceless in the face of abuse … and from being coerced into compliance as a woman.

My lifelong journey led me to become fluent in dog behavior, positive training, holistic healing, the human-dog bond, the mind-body-spirit connection, and intuitively communicating heart-to-heart.

An author, writer, the founder of Dancing Hearts Cognitive Dog Training and creator of the Brilliant Partners Academy, The Foundation Formula, Herding Partners Academy, and Creative Alchemy Passion Plan …

I believe that a holistic, heart-connected lifestyle with dogs by our side ROCKS! (I coach dog enthusiasts around the world how-to in my Brilliant Partners Academy)

Oh, did I mention that I am a not-so-secret shepherdess? And a partner to my talented border collies, traveling around North America as a national championship contender at sheepdog competitions. F-U-N!! (and yes, I do have a training program where I share my herding expertise…thanks for asking!)

Hang out, and we’ll take a dive deep into the heart and soul of the human-dog connection and explore strategies that will inspire you to create legendary, enlightened partnership with YOUR dog.
