WORKSHOP Sat 23 FEB : Herbal Self-Healing for Your Dog - 10am - 4.30pm. Langport TA10 9QF

65.00

Did you know that your dog has a natural ability to choose plant extracts that can help support its own wellbeing?

Or that dogs with long-term behavioural issues can gain immense benefits simply by inhaling certain botanical compounds?

Would you like to understand how to help your dog show you what it really needs?

This workshop is a real eye-opener! It introduces you to the absolutely fascinating world of animal self-medication (aka Zoopharmacognosy), where you will learn about:

  • some of the different types of extracts offered, and why they are often selected

  • the different ways your dog might wish to “take” an extract

  • signs to look for when offering extracts, including when “no” means “yes”!

  • how to offer your dog extracts in a safe and appropriate way

  • seeing the “big picture” - including your own behaviours & reactions when offering!

There is a practical element to the workshop, as “seeing is believing”! And it underpins learning so much more than words and photos. So there will be demonstrations with two dogs during the day.

This means there will be space for TWO attendees to bring their dogs to the workshop (and secure indoor & outdoor spaces for them to relax in when not participating). These spaces tend to go quickly, so if you would like to bring your dog to be part of the workshop, please contact me directly ASAP on 07714 731929 if you have questions, otherwise indicate on relevant section on the form & I’ll be in touch, thank you!

What else might you need to know…?

Parking: There is a public car park approximately 5 minutes walk from the workshop location, on a public footpath, slightly uphill. This car park is opposite St Mary’s Church, (Huish Episcopi) the postcode is TA10 9QR Please get in touch if you have access requirements regarding closer parking.

Workshop location: Immediately adjacent to The Hanging Chapel (famous Ancient Monument in Langport): IF YOU’RE COMING FROM ST MARY’S CHURCH CAR PARK: Cross the road so that you’re on the same side as the Church, walk left, along the path and up the Hill, you will soon see the unmistakable Hanging Chapel arched over the road. You’re nearly there! Walk through the pedestrian archway beside the Chapel (please don’t be tempted to walk on the road under the main arch!) , on your left you will see a blue painted coachhouse gate set in a long red brick wall. You’re there! There is a bell on the right hand side of the gate, please ring for entrance.

IF YOU’RE WALKING UP THE HILL FROM THE TOWN CENTRE: You will soon see The Hanging Chapel arched over the road. Portcullis Lodge is the last building on your right-hand side before the Chapel, with a blue painted coachhouse gate set in a long red brick wall. You’re there! There is a bell on the right hand side of the gate, please ring for entrance

Schedule: You are welcome to arrive any time from 9.30 onwards, for the 10.00am start. There will be an hour’s break for lunch & a leg-stretch (or dog walk!). The workshop will end at 4.30pm.

Refreshments: Tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be available. You are very welcome to bring a packed lunch and eat in, or there is a delightful & quirky cafe “Art Tea Zen” just 5 minutes walk away downhill that does really yummy food & drinks at extremely reasonable prices (“ http://artteazen.co.uk/ ). Almost as close by is the lovely River Parrett Cafe (website currently being updated). The Angel Cafe is not open on Saturdays, and “Kitchen” is fabulous but a bit of a squeeze to get there, eat and return within lunchbreak time.

Learning Level: This is a general interest workshop to introduce a fascinating and wonderful protocol and to help you see the potential of helping your own dog using zoopharmacognosy. It does not confer any professional accreditation or qualify you to use what you have learned with other people’s animals.
