Awareness or…out of sight, out of mind?

Are things always as we imagine them to be? I think not. This morning we took the dogs to the beach. As we walked through the pine grove which borders the beach a black lab came tearing up to us, wagging her tail very fast. She was clearly looking for someone. She was wearing a [...]

Sicker than a dog

Our sweet Malka is a beautiful Standard Poodle, coming in on 14 years old this year. We have always considered her our Energizer Bunny who has managed to outlive three of our beloved pets. She just keeps on ticking. Have no doubt, its all part of a bigger plan of a healthy lifestyle of homemade [...]

Wolf Pack

In this video we see how a wolf pack is organised. At the head are the old and/or infirm animals. They set the pace. Otherwise they would be left behind. Then come the young males whose job it is to defend the group. They are followed by the fertile females who ensure the future of [...]

Verification of Effectiveness of Head Wraps

I think this extract from a message received from Uruguay is testimony to the effectiveness of head wraps. Sylvia took her dog to the vet as he was suffering from an intestinal problem. Here is her account of what happened! I took the dog to the vet and they examined him all over. As I [...]

Masterclass: TTouch Wraps

We have just launched a new short online course in Spanish where you can learn some simple, basic TTouch wrap configurations. The holiday season is coming soon and for many dogs this is a time of great stress due to fireworks and other noisy events. TTouch wraps can help enormously to remove or reduce the [...]

The Importance of the Pause

The Pausa with a capital P is a simple but highly effective "tool" in all learning processes.  When we pause, we give the animal the chance to process and assimilate the recent experience in order to learn from it.  Sometimes we will find that after the pause a task which previously seemed impossible will simply [...]

Attention, Intention & Transformation

Our aim is that the animals we work with should be present throughout the activity. Only when the animal is aware of what is going on can he assimilate the experience and learn from it. We must always offer them that crucial "pause" so that they can process the information. For the very same reasons [...]

Balance & Relationship

Of course we can compel animals to (apparently) extinguish undesirable behaviours, but is this really the case? Normally what happens is that the behaviour is covered over and hidden: it becomes less visible. because the consequences for the animal if it does not comply may be more than disagreeable - even violent. The truth is [...]
