Canine herbal self-medication for physical and emotional support

Come and learn the exciting principles of herbal self-medication for dogs in this session that incorporates the theory behind the science of self-selection, and mini demonstrations with two delegates’ dogs.

See now our dogs can self-medicate from the healing properties of plants, guided by how they taste and smell, to provide themselves with the best possible conditions to heal from physical and emotional challenges and traumas such as surgery, an unknown rescue history, or anxiety.

Learn how to host a mini-session for your own dog with the option to purchase a starter kit with all the basics you’ll need to start your dog on this journey of self-healing.

This session is delivered by Lesley Smith MISAP, APDT 01247, Animal Wellness Consultant from Two Happy Tails Ltd who is a qualified Herbal Self-selection Consultant, and also offers canine massage and myofascial release, animal Reiki and red light therapy as well as a 1:1 dog walking service.

DEMO DOGS – If you would like your dog to take part in the session as a demo dog, please contact us before booking. Other than the two selected demo dogs, please leave all other dogs at home.

Tickets are £30 per person, with 50% of the ticket price going to Dog A.I.D. (an assistance dog charity that the host and speaker both support) with an additional payment of £10 if your dog takes part in the demonstration.

Our chosen charity – Dog A.I.D
Both Lesley from Two Happy Tails and Rachel from Abbey Dog Training are trainers for Dog A.I.D.
(Dog Assistance in Disability – Registered Charity No 1098619)

Dog A.I.D. is a charitable organisation which helps people with physical disabilities train their own pet dogs to be good companions, and help around the house with everyday tasks which able bodied people might take for granted – such as getting dressed, switching on lights and emptying the washing machine.  Dogs who complete all three levels of training become certified ‘assistance dogs’ and can provide help in shops and other ‘no dog’ areas.

Dogs can be trained to do just about anything you like, so long as they are physically capable of doing it and the task does not require opposable thumbs!
