A wee sneak preview - Dr. Jeff Feinman

He is a veterinarian since 1985 and founder of Holistic Actions! And he’s on a mission to bring Compassionate Communication through a positive and practical veterinary spirituality to pet care.

One of the things we discussed in our conversation is the negative impact of fear and anxiety in owners when pets show symptoms, emphasizing the importance of looking at these as internal energy balances rather than physiologic problems to be immediately fixed.

Watch the 1-minute sneak preview here.

This week’s Pawsome Human: Jennifer Urezzio - Each dog is here to teach us something

In a conversation centered around the bond with dogs, Jennifer talks about how dogs changed her life.

Based in Morristown, New Jersey, Jennifer went from being a cat person to a dog person through her connection with her Australian Blue Heeler.

She talks about how having a dog has taught her about opening her heart, being patient, and letting go of control.

She also introduces her paradigm, 'soul language', which is about understanding the underlying energies of living beings and using this understanding to better communicate and nurture relationships.

Have you heard of ACE Free Work designed by Sarah Fisher?

Several of the summit speakers mentioned Sarah Fisher’s Free Work so I was curious.

ACE Free Work combines a variety of sensory educational exercises including different surfaces and ball pools to improve balance, behaviour and movement, to help dogs reset and relax.

It’s fascinating to watch Sarah observe a dog.

Her knowledge of canine physiology allows her to spot a dog’s discomfort which is often at the heart of unwanted behaviours.

But even without being an expert on canine anatomy, observing a dog interact with the different smells, surfaces, treats or toys tells you a lot about their preferences and how they learn. It’s easy to see how that helps you help them.

AND .. simply being able to use all their senses, on their own terms, helps dogs relax and ground themselves which of course helps them cope better with whatever life in a human world throws at them.

If you have an anxious or stressed dog, Sarah Fisher’s works is worth checking out.

(And I’ll see if I can get her to speak at the next summit 😛)

Here is a brief introduction:

To learn more, Sarah Fisher offers a free course to get your “nose wet” :-)

Doggie bath time 🤣 Can you relate?

Ready to get YOUR Soul Touched by Dogs mug?

Get a mug with a picture of YOUR dog 🐾🐾 

How about a mug with a picture of YOUR dog, for your morning coffee or as a gift, using the proceeds to sponsor dogs in need and help the people who help dogs?

If you’d like one, hit reply and let me know.

Send me a good-quality photo of your dog and I’ll create the design and send you a link where you can purchase it.

They get made to order so it takes 10-12 days to arrive. €15 + shipping.

(Shipping depends on where you are of course but will be somewhere around €5-12. I’ll check for you before I go and create the design, so there won’t be any surprises)

Get your Soul Touched by Dogs t-shirt

The moment I had the idea for the mugs, I knew I also wanted t-shirts 😝 and I’m super happy with mine 🐾🐾😊😊

If you want, you can get yours here (they come in a few different colours)

If it doesn’t come in your size, let me know. I do work with another supplier so we can find an option that works for you.

Just like with the mugs, the proceeds are going to dogs in need.

And as always ..

If you know another Soul Touched by Dogs, please send them to 🙏🙏🐾🐾

Until next week,
