TTouch Tail Pulls

TTouch tail pulls are another excellent way of helping animals release tension in the spine because the stretch and slow release allow the vertebrae to relax and realign.

Urban Experiences

This morning we went into town to give Salma an urban experience of waking in town on lead. What an exhausting morning she had!!!

Free Work & Ground Work with Salma

Yesterday we did some free work.  At first Salma was not interested in the free work because her priority is to be with people.
