Exploring the Healing Power of Dogs w/ Gila Kurtz
Show Notes

There is no denying the connection between humans and dogs. It's been an unbreakable bond that's been present in our world for many, many decades and continues to strengthen as new generations fall in love with these uncanny canines. Dogs are loyal, provide a strong sense of comfort, and are always there for us when we need them most. Without even trying, they're healers...and that's a trait that can never be duplicated.

In Episode 3 of The Makin Wellness Podcast, I am joined by Gila Kurtz, Co-Founder of Dog is Good, a lifestyle brand for dog lovers. Gila's company, founded and operated alongside her husband Jon, creates original messaging and designs for products that "share the unique joy one feels living life with Dog." Gila is a renowned dog trainer who immersed herself in the science of canine behavior. In Gila's words, "anything worth doing is worth overdoing."

Gila's work has earned her several prestigious awards, including Pet Age's Top 25 Woman of Influence and Woman of the Year by the Women in the Pet Industry Network in 2017. She is also an Internationally-recognized best-selling author for Fur Covered Wisdom.

Today, Gila brings her years of wisdom and experience to The Makin Wellness Podcast to share the special kinship dogs and humans share, the positive mental attributes dog ownership brings us, her mission to spread dog wisdom across the globe, and much more!
