The only time of my life I didn’t share my life with dogs was while I was flatting and maybe when I was very little, a quick count around those few years and that’s roughly 40 years of doggy-bliss in my life!
Baxter and Jeddah are treasured family members who are “inside dogs” – of course they love company and want to be near everyone – where they have quality places to sleep, including three memory foam mattresses for our senior boy Baxter. Jeddah has a horse hair mattress that I just happen to have plus there are always other soft options…and yes they do love to be up on the couch close to us! I am a real foodie and believe it is also our medicine, therefore it makes sense that my boys are feed a raw diet. They also receive the best holistic health care I can provide and are exercised regularly. We’re very fortunate to have an organic orchard across the road from home plus a country road to walk on. Not far away are also many reserves, parks and beaches.
The training and experience I bring to you and your dog (or other animal friend), I;
- graduated as a BodyTalk Practitioner in August of 2015, including extra training for animals (from the International BodyTalk Association, Florida, USA),
- was awarded a Certificate in Raw Dog Food Nutrition in January 2018 (Dogs Naturally, Canada),
- and completed two magical courses from the same provider – namely Flower Essences for Animal’s Emotions (energy based, do not require the essences) 2019 and Animal Kinesiology 2020 (Animal Energy Therapies, Perth, Australia).
All the above can be provided from a distance, such is the nature of energy therapies although I also have a cabin on our property where you are most welcome to visit. If you have any questions you are more than welcome to contact me when I will reply to you the same day or within 24 hours.
Further qualifications, work experience and various studies can be found on both links provided below in my signature.
My story: Louie and Minke – who gave me my sense of purpose to help other dogs
Two much-loved family members who are no longer with us, struggled and suffered with their health for far too long. This was before I became a BodyTalk Practitioner for people and animals, and graduated with a certificate in raw feeding for dogs.
Louie, German Shepherd, had incessant scratching, skin problems, inflammation and later, lumps …
His little mate (in size only!) Minke, Jack Russell, who passed away before him also had skin problems.
Long story short, they received as much natural health care and raw diet as I could give them including enlisting our local holistic vet but for whatever reason, their issues weren’t resolving easily. I’m now learning as much as I can about holistic and natural solutions, including nutrition.
In my humble opinion, drugs and surgery do have their place for some acute or serious conditions, although my first choice even then is most always the preventative, non-chemical, non- surgical route as best as I can provide. Chronic, long term health conditions are better treated at the level of origin, not necessarily quick, but a longer term better investment not only in money but in time and quality of life.
I felt stressed, frustrated and in tears a lot of the time, seeing them so unwell … I also felt very powerless.
I have no doubt that other areas in my life (where I felt stress) negatively impacted on them both. Plus I now know their raw diet could have been better balanced nutritionally.
Toward the end of Louie’s life when I was starting to learn BodyTalk, and bringing in extra help by ‘throwing’ whatever I could at him so to speak, his health started to improve and his coat looked great, but by then it wasn’t going to save his life.
One of my most deeply treasured experiences …
…was at home 11.55pm Saturday night 15 June 2013, lying with Louie at his most sacred time, when he let go his last breath. I swear I felt the breezes of angels wings (I don’t normally talk like that!) I actually looked around to see if any doors were open (and there wasn’t)!
I feel very drawn to supporting others at this very tender time to provide relief and comfort. Also in the weeks and months prior to, for pain relief and peace. Please ask me (and you may like to refer to my testimonials).
Maybe it’s not hard to understand that I am particularly passionate about helping dogs. They are the most loyal and loving friend you could ask for.
