Listening to the whispers … and then acting on what they tell us!

  In TTouch classes we place great emphasis on Edie Jane Eaton's  concept of listening to the whispers so that our animals do not have to shout to be heard. Some time ago now with my last beardie, Sasha, I had the chance to see how important it is to pay attention to these small [...]

Oxytocin, TTouch, Zoopharmacognosy and Separation Anxiety
