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 [...]

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.

The truth is [...]

Let’s Celebrate The Small Successes

For the most part we are  impatient. In our world of instant gratification we want all difficulties to be resolved with a wave of a magic wand, but that is not how life is. When we are working with animals, it pays to celebrate each tiny step forward. Each tiny advancement takes us just that [...]

Change leads to Change

I have just had another example of the importance of changing something when we want a situation to change. If we keep on doing the same old thing we are only going to get more of the same. This is something that was brought home to me very forcibly this summer when we moved 1,000km. [...]
