When working with animals, the energy that is brought in to the situation is one of the most important tools any person can understand and utilize. In my career in working with animals, from dog walking to dog training, even fostering and owning my own dogs. Paying attention to your energy is valuable and essential. Animals are extremely intuitive on energy and human movements.
Olly is a dog I took care of who was incredibly skittish of strangers, barked a lot. His owner was nervous to have people over. Towards the end he was a lovebug, always a love bug with me.
