We’re back this week humans with Part 3 of this class. Last week you learned what essential oils are and how to use them – with humans.
So, how do you use essential oils with your dogs? This week we’ll be talking about (well the humans will) SOME of the ways you can do exactly that!
Just like with people, you can use them with us the same way, WOOF! Topically, aromatically or internally – IF you are using Young Living that is! Also, you need to use some jurisprudence (I know English real well Mom says), and know your dog well so you know what they tolerate and don’t. Also be sure to go easy at first bepaws remember the first lesson where you learned how sensitive our sense of smell is? Right, remember that, WOOF!
Two of the best ways my Mom and her friends accomplish this are by diffusing the oils or rubbing a drop or two on your hands and stroking down your dog’s back. In this video, my Mom, Dr. Kim, will demonstrate using some of the oils on ME! This is when my girlfriend Schatzie was still alive. She didn’t use to like the raindrop but before she went to heaven in 2019 she LOVED any massage with ANY of the oils, WOOF! I taught her that. Mom has a video of us getting massages from her in her Faith, Dogs and Oils class – get the Bundle bepaws then you get ALL the oils classes included!
We’ll start with using natural therapies on dogs – doing massage and using essential oils is part of that you know.
“The Raindrop Technique is a great way to support the muscular-skeletal system of our dogs (ours as well). The oils are dropped from about six inches above the spine, hence the name raindrop.” This is our good friend Wendy Lovas sharing an improvised raindrop on Albert the Wolfhound…he’s really big! Wendy and her mom have done LOTS of dog rescue over the years (her mom still does), Albert was a rescue (he went to heaven but he had some good years with Wendy’s mom). Wendy is certified in small animal naturopathy!
Do Your Board Your Dog?
For some dogs, boarding can be a very stressful situation (I sure wouldn’t like it bepaws I like being with my Dad all the time). Watch this video for some tips on how to make the experience a little more enjoyable for us. Our good friend Bre Altherr is sharing on this as she’s an experienced dog groomer AND dog trainer (her and her husband have their own facilities for dog training – they used to groom and board, but now they focus solely on training and doggie day care with training)…oh and she’s certified in canine carnivore nutrition too – my favorite! She has SIX dogs now – TWO are girls, my favorite, woof!
Does Your Dog Need to be Professionally Groomed?
Like boarding, getting groomed can be stressful for dogs – not to mention the toxic chemicals in the shampoos and sprays used on them. This is our good friend Bre sharing again on grooming dogs – she has her beautiful GIRL dog Midge modeling in this one for us all, WOOF!
Add a whole new dimension to tummy rubs! Our good friend Kathy Lacey is sharing these next three videos. She REALLY knows how to help humans learn how to be proactive in their dog care. Kathy calls herself a Foster Dog Mom fail bepaws she always keeps them hehe. She has FIVE dogs now!
Unexpected things happen in life to us and our dogs. Are you prepared when something happens? Here are some tips to deal with life’s little surprises.
Does your dog get REAL nervous on certain explosive holidays or with loud or sudden noises or storms? I know Ezra sure does, oy vey does he ever! Here’s a video Kathy shares on helping to calm your dog through those storms. Ezra is sure testing us all in this poor guy.
