Canine Yoga and Calming Signals (Relaxation Training for Your Dog)
Hot Springs Festival, T or C, NM
14 May 2016 9 – 10:30am at 410 Main St
This presentation is a condensed version of the week-end long seminar that covers canine body language, massage, anatomy and physiology, canine yoga and nutrition.
Participants will learn:
- some of the signals dogs use the world over to say “I mean no harm,” “let’s chill out,” “you’re playing too rough” or “I just want to be left alone.”
- why training those same signals as default behaviors, readily available in times of stress, has the same effect as practicing yoga, which gives the body a default calmness in contrast to just saying, “calm down” when someone is highly stressed and has never practiced relaxation exercises.
- A relaxation protocol that is key to calming fearful, reactive dogs and excellent as a foundation for all dogs and puppies
Once your dog is practicing “Doggy Yoga,” and/or the Relaxation Protocol, his or her demeanor and overall well-being is enhanced, as is your relationship.
“The Relaxation Protocol has been wonderful for our dog. Sophie is a rescue, very fearful and reactive. Tamra’s work with her is amazingly effective. Sophie loves the calm praise, and she very visibly relaxes. A great program!”
