Dogs store stress in their bodies the same way people do. Problem behaviors in dogs are caused by this stored stress being expressed in unwanted ways. Stress is simply a natural biophysical reaction to stimulation. When the energy equation is out of balance, i.e. too much stimulus without enoughemotional grounding, we get a surplus of energy which is stored as stress. So what we have to do is give your dog a place to download this excess energy.
There are a few core exercises for dogs that work to bring this energy to ground, at the same time making your dog more resilient moving forward. Holistic Dog Training is akin to somatic psychology for dogs. We take into consideration that the mind and body are one, and in working to heal the body of excess stress, we can bring the mind back into balance.
We always start our process with a Behavioral Assessment. After this initial session, you can move forward with our lessons in Holistic Dog Training. We are located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A travel surcharge applies outside of our service area, please contact us for details.
