PhD, MBiolSci, BSc - Conservation Biologist and wellness Professional
Our dogs have an indigenous blueprint, mapped to the ancestral canine that is still a part of them. Modern day living can and does create disturbances within a dog's indigenous blueprint, creating distress within the individual ecosystem. By recognising our dogs as genetically ancient canines that now live in a modern day world, we can identify how we can strive to create a resilient canine, or what we can do to re-align a dog's ecosystem where disturbances occur. In so doing, we can assess the wellness of a dog, through the canine wellness wheel and learn how to play our part in providing long health and long life for our dogs, rather than long life and long sickness. From physical, physiological, nutritional, energy, emotional and spiritual distresses as well as distresses at other levels, this talk will cover the aspects of canine wellness and how to co-exist with our dogs to support their ecosystems in this modern day world.
