We start with a lecture and an introduction on how mindfulness works and how it can change the life for you and your animal.  We will give you insights on how a present mind helps us and the dogs in our daily lives and how you can build a relationship with your own animal.  Many examples of how we work with the dogs from young puppies to old dogs are shown, wherein the Trust Technique is one of our most important tools. Massage is another important welfare tool.
