Introduction to the Six Legged Companion Coach
What? Did you say you have never heard of a Six Legged Companion Coach? Well that could be because there is no other one than Pam.
Why and how she came up with the title:
There is a reason behind Pam coming up with her title.
First her real name is Pamela Schmidlin. She is from Long Island, NY. And here we will break down the title and explain why she choose the title name!
Let’s start with Six Legged- no she doesn’t have 6 legs, BUT as a professional dog trainer- yes, she did study and have experience working with canines in the past. So she took her two legs and her dogs four legs and added them because she opted to coach along side her dogs, as her dogs are just as much a great coach to her and others as anyone else could ever be. We can learn so much from our dogs- take Yoga for instance. In Yoga one of the most well known poses is the Downward Dog (you don’t even have to practice Yoga know of this pose). We get the move literally from the dog. It’s the first thing you can find our dogs doing in the morning- immediately followed by an Upward Dog of course. (The probably second most known pose in Yoga). And then you have the Extended Puppy Pose which is taken from well the young dogs i.e. PUPPIES! Most Yoga poses which are so healthy for humans to do are taken from well the animals. Her followers and students are called Six Legged Companion Teams!
Companion- Pam doesn’t call her dogs her babies or anything so mundane. It actually offends her. She is not a pet parent- she considered them Best Friends, but more over companions to her.
Coach- this is fairly easy to explain. As a dog trainer, she is a coach to those who need to learn how to work and live with their dogs. And as a health coach she took the trainer and turned that into Coach. She prefers to be known as a coach than trainer. She also most recently became a Beachbody coach. Which you will hear more about in the upcoming weeks ahead.
What is she here to do:
The Six Legged Companion Coach is here to help people live a healthy and happy lifestyle with their dogs ALONGSIDE her dogs AKA the 4 American Dogs.
