Does your dog suffer from anxiety or stress, itchy skin, or behavioural issues? Is your dog elderly and has lost it's zest for life, or has mobility, memory or learning issues? Many behavioural problems can be the result of undiagnosed pain or stress. Would you know if your dog was in pain or suffering from stress? Dogs are evolutionarily predisposed to hide pain well. In my canine consultations, I show you how to bring wellbeing and balance to your dog's life through teaching you what a dog actually needs to be happy, not what we think it needs.
I teach you observation skills, how less exercise and more sniffing, reducing obedience and over-commanding, giving choices, can hugely reduce stress in dogs physiologically by reducing the stress chemicals adrenaline and cortisol and activating the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). I show you how to offer gentle herbs and oils, massage and calming behaviour techniques based on a dog's innate behaviour and heritige - what a dog actually needs to be a dog.
