Canine Wellness   More dog guardians are becoming aware of adjunctive ways to help their canine family members. They are stepping outside the box and seeing a new world. Dog lovers are realising the options for optimal health of their furry family members. From the basics of what to feed them, to ways to train and communicate with them as well as digging into the realm of what to do when they become older or are injured. The U.K. is many years ahead of us here in North America. They have been feeding their dogs’ better quality food and performing rehabilitation as a norm in their lives. It took a while for us to get there…but now the dog-loving population here has joined in a form of Renaissance in the way they look at the care and well-being of their dog. Many dog lovers are partnering with their dogs in performing in competitive events such as flyball, agility, disc, herding, many forms of obedience and so on. These avid fans of dogs are now becoming more in tune with their canine athletes and are learning to put their hands on their dogs in an effort to detect early signs of injury. Shari has been a part of this movement since the early 90’s and is very happy to share her knowledge with other dog guardians.
