Connection is a key component in reducing stress - even for pets! Learn a simple, gentle, hands-on approach to bond with animal friends and leave the busy workday stress behind. Find new ways to relax with animals, help them reduce anxieties, decrease reactivity, increase focus and coordination, and enhance the ability to learn more easily.
This activity is designed for pet owners working remotely or in a pet-friendly work environment. However, you can learn these techniques, watch demonstrations, and try out the methods on yourself first without an animal sitting with you, and then apply these techniques once you are with animals.
You will find these techniques most helpful whether a pet is a young animal, senior, couch potato, pet athlete, adopted, fostered, and everyone in between. And, this works with all kinds of animals!
Give back to your pet and build trust, gain confidence, and help fostered animals get adopted more easily. Assist learning, training, and adjusting to new circumstances more willingly. You will be amazed how quickly animals settle down, adapt, and advance once you begin using these techniques.
We are an LGBTQ-owned business. Your host, Sandy is an author, teacher, and experienced TTouch Practitioner, trained in Energy Healing Medicine.

Sandy was such a calm presence and taught us some great techniques with our pets. I started using them during the session and my dog, Hunter, relaxed and fell asleep right away. Thank you so much, Sandy!
I tried one of the methods with my dog given in class. She almost immediately stretched out and closed her eyes – a very different reaction than normal. I continued using the methods you outlined and she loved it. Thank you for such great information!
My dog Ruby has experienced another tectonic shift since working with this method. She now demonstrates increasing self-control in the face of triggers.

Through this work I feel a deeper bond with my dog and with client’s animals. Before taking this class, my dog would often focus on others when out walking. Now she is listening and paying attention to me. In training she is more receptive and willing.
