If you’re interested in Eastern food therapy and what it has to offer, then I’ve got great news for you. If you want to learn about warming foods and cooling foods and neutral foods and how to combine foods so that you can create energetic balance for your pet, then I’ve got a simple solution for you. We’ve got this book called the Pet Owners Guide to Eastern Food Therapy and Your Pet.

You can download it now and learn all those things and more. You can learn how to feed your pet when they have a hot disease like a dog that itches with allergies. That’s heat. What do we do? We want to balance that pet so we feed energetically cooling foods.

It’s a pretty simple concept. It’s the same reason why when you eat a jalapeno pepper and you get that burning sensation inside you. We have cucumbers in our water because they’re cooling.

Download our free ebook, Eastern Food Therapy for the Busy Pet Owner so that you can learn and empower yourself to use the energetics of foods to help your pet.

Lots of people are interested in therapy dog training. Largely because they love their dog so much and get so much joy out of having them that they want to share that joy with others. For most organizations there’s about four steps that you need to keep in mind to prepare yourself for therapy dog training. The first is the human end of the leash needs to be trained. You can take an in home study course or workshop from any of the organizations that offer a pet partners team. And that will prepare both you and your dog for an evaluation. Secondly you need to have a health check for your dog. Most hospitals require that your dog within a year has received a full exam and health check, that they are up to date on whatever vaccines you veterinarian requires and of course most states require the rabies vaccine. We also have to make sure that therapy dogs are free of parasites and other diseases because they will be exposed to people that may be in jeopardy or sensitive to such things. When you’re ready you’re gonna take your evaluation. Keep in mind it’s not just your dog that’s being evaluated. It’s your skills and interfacing with the various clients and the various facilities that you’re interested in visiting. As much as many people want their dog to do therapy dog work, what you do wanna consider is whether that’s the right thing for your dog. Dogs that do well with this type of work are dogs that are extremely friendly and love interacting not only with you but with strangers. They also need to be comfortable in a variety of strange environments and not be easily spooked by odd movements, loud noises or unusual sounds. If you and your dog want to embark on being a pet partners team the best thing to do is to get them socialized early on when they’re puppies and to continue that training so that your dog is extremely mannerly, under your control at all times and is having a good time on his visits.
