Through this course you will learn more about dogs than you ever dreamed! What dogs really are, what their basic instincts are, and what dogs really need. Spoiler alert – it’s always about safety and survival, and I will be sharing the ways you can impress on your dog, and those with which you work, that they are safe with you and without worry. I will be talking about anxiety and the many ways dogs show this and how we sometimes misinterpret anxiety for happy excitement. I want to introduce a different way of looking at dogs to you which is so enlightening and is the beginning of a deeper bond and a more relaxed and responsive dog.
Learning about the true nature of a dog means we can take all the pressure off them, allowing them to be their best selves. We will dig into how the Let Animals Lead approach to Animal Reiki is the most beautiful tool in your Reiki toolkit and I will share with you why, as a Dog Listener for many years, I was so drawn to this approach and why I was inspired to teach it. I will be able to give you the knowledge to show respect to the dogs you love, gain respect from them for all your decisions, and remain safe when working or volunteering with dogs you don’t yet know.
