Just Adopted: Two Weeks In And Processing Fear

Kestrel is continuing to demonstrate anxiety on walks, primarily to other dogs. She isn't reactive but they give her pause, she analyzes the risk level when she sees them, and dogs barking from their homes can nearly ruin the rest of the walk for her. 

It's important to recognize that fears grow if not dealt with, so I'm addressing it in two ways.

Just adopted! Where do you start?

Meet Kestrel. I just adopted her yesterday. 

She's about 11 months old. She seems to be in good health and spirits, but she was recently vaccinated (2 DHLPP and Rabies) and spayed, and has been fed processed foods as far as I know. Her temperament seems so far to be very good: sociable and relaxed, but she does on occasion exhibit some mild fear issues.

So where do I start?

What To Expect from a Dog Healing Session

Art by an old family friend in a corner of
my vibrational sound therapy room.

By this time I thought I might be writing about a new dog in my life, but since that hasn't happened yet I thought I'd take an opportunity to write about the professional services I offer through The Art of Dog. This is an introductory summary to help new clients understand what to expect when I first meet their dog. When modalities are unfamiliar it's helpful to at least understand how this new relationship with a practitioner will look. I send this to new clients in advance of our first session. If this sounds like something you'd like to experience please get in touch with me.
