♦ Rejuvenating our bodies and minds through relaxation is essential for good overall health.
When we are stressed we compromise all of our bodily systems. Chronic stress can lead to pain, depression, anxiety, intestinal problems, unhealthy changes in behavior, and more.
♦ Just like humans, our dogs’ health can be compromised by stress as well.
Common causes of stress in dogs include:
•Loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks • Changes in routine • Changes in residence • When a member of its ‘pack’ leaves or shows up (A dog’s pack includes both people (new babies) and other animals.) • Traveling • Being alone
♦ Luckily, dogs are pretty good about showing us how they feel.
Common signs of stress in dogs include:
•Barking, Whining, Whimpering, Growling • Changes in food intake and bathroom behavior • Changes in normal tail position • Licking & Scratching • Excessive drooling • And more!
♦ Thankfully, there are ways for both humans & dogs to relieve the stresses of everyday life.
It is well-documented that music & meditation help to relieve stress in people. Did you know these same techniques can help your dog, too?
♦ That’s right, we can find our inner peace together!
People and their pets feed off one another. Balancing our moods will strengthen our bond. Our dogs bring us joy, but they can also help us relax. There is nothing quite like the unconditional love of a dog. There are immense health outcomes to be gained from spending time with our dogs. Touching and petting our dogs, connecting socially with them, and the companionship they provide have shown to have positive effects on our immune, heart, and mental health.
♦ These tools will help strengthen your bond with your dog.

Guided DOG Meditations?
Additionally, I believe, I am the first and only at this time to have Guided Dog Meditations. A Guided Meditation for us humans is when someone well versed in Meditation will talk and guide you thorough a Meditative Expedience so maybe you can learn to do it on your own as well as to provide another way to experience Meditation. Guided Mediations are a wonderful way to really focus your breathing and empty your mind to make it available for so many other finds. I have collaborated my expertise with professional Meditation and Spiritual Practitioners to assemble Guided Meditations for Dogs!! These are truly remarkable providing a soothing and relaxing experience. Though all the words along theses Guided Dog Meditations may not be fully understood by the Dog, the vocal tones of the Guides and the tranquil sounds of the nature and/or music that accompany them with create a comforting time that can promote healing, rest, and security. You can hear and experience much of the PAWSe and Guided PAWSe (Guided Meditations) on the WooFSpirit and WolFManChi Radio Stations Below.
