Gila Kurtz: How Dogs Can Help You Deal with Grief, Therapy, and Bereavement

There is a reason why dogs are called man’s best friend. For professional dog trainer Gila
Kurtz, a dog can change the way you see the world. Technology is making people seem more connected, but we as humans are more disconnected than ever before. But when you are with your dog, there is that connection that has no interference, a genuine relationship because dogs connect with us in a very heart-centered way.

In this episode of the Glam Reaper Podcast, Jennifer interviews John and Gila Kurtz, who found the positive influence of dogs in their lives and decided to set up the business Dog is Good (DIG)—a lifestyle brand for dog lovers. In this podcast episode, Gila lets us in her world of dogs to bring awareness about how wonderful it is to have dogs in our homes. 

Learn how to cultivate a strong emotional relationship with your dogs based on what they can teach us when domesticated, and how they can help you through your journey of grief.
