   These are just 2 of the many rescue dogs I have worked with...

One of my primary goals is to help the many dogs rescued from abusive or neglectful situations, who continue to carry stress, on every level.

It is wonderful how many dogs are being rescued from appalling circumstance and given new homes and lots of TLC. However, this may not be enough for them to lose their fear and possible distrust of humans... 

When dogs are transported by plane from one country, or province, to another, it takes a toll on the animal, creating a very high level of stress - physical, mental and emotional.

This stays with them… and sets up negative behaviour patterns; their way of coping…  

Considering that animals’ sense of hearing is far, far greater than ours, and their sensitivity much more acute, we can begin to understand how animals, taken from familiar surroundings, mother and siblings, are affected, and the reason they display certain unwanted behaviour.

The first step is to assist the dog in releasing the trauma of being separated from family, travel stress, and being in totally new surroundings with strangers, and the high level of fear all that created.

And if the dog has been neglected, or abused in any way, I will work to release the held trauma of that, as well. As I work with each dog, often it communicates to me what happened to it in the past... 

Each dog is very individual, and will release fear and trauma - mental, emotional and physical, at the rate that is comfortable for them. Then they start to relax, and to trust... and their behaviour naturally changes!

DISTANT CALMING

Note: I can do the session in person, at your home (Covid protocols observed) and/or distantly. Both work equally well. 

I may start by communicating with specific areas of the brain, to release trauma and negative memories.... Then I may send calming energy to its body, to release physical stress or traums. calm the dog. (Note: Intererstingly, I discovered that anxious dogs dogs respond better to these methods than the healing modalities I use for people... Quantum Touch, Reiki, etc...)

My work is very intuitive, and I will be guided on how best to proceed with them by what messages they or their body give me, and how they respond to each action.

Later I will share a simple but highly effective calming technique with you, to  use on your pet before any potentially stressful situations...  

Once I am able to bring the dog’s emotions and thinking levels down, it is able to begin to relax and to listen when you ask it to do something. I can then work with you to release any negative behaviour it is exhibiting, including biting furniture, and excessive barking.

Going at the animal’s pace… slowly building trust… and most importantly, never forcing or dominating the dog.

Always respecting the dog’s boundaries, and how quickly it is ready to let go of stress and discomfort in its body, mind, and emotions.

 

Communicating

 

Whilst working on healing and releasing trauma from the dog, it may want to communicate with me, to share what happened to it in the past, or any current issues it has.

But if an animal is extremely stressed, it may be too shut down to want to communicate at this point. Later, as the dog is calmer, it may be more inclined to chat…

Though, often I will pick up details of its past as I work on its brain, or body.

However, if you have specific questions you would like me to ask, and the dog is too fearful initially to chat with me in person, I may ask you to send me a photo of the dog, and I can connect with it that way, and receive any information it wishes to share.
