A Groundbreaking New Book by Canine Expert and Author, Lisa Tenzin-Dolma
I don’t feature so many authors on my blog these days. Writing life just gets busier and busier, and sadly time doesn’t allow – even for my own bookish updates and ramblings! – but when it comes to my great friend, Lisa Tenzin-Dolma, I will drop everything in a heartbeat…
Lisa is not only an exceptionally talented author of many genres, she is also a bit of a dog guru, having written many non-fiction books on how we can better care for and nurture our furry friends. Her latest offering to the world is no exception:
Without further ado, I’ll leave you in Lisa’s expert hands to tell you more about her latest book which focuses on the astonishing power of Bach Flower remedies and behaviour therapy:
The inspiration behind the book
Emotional Healing for Dogs is the distillation of almost 40 years experience of working with people and dogs (and other animals) to help alleviate emotional and mental disturbances. The book came about because I so often get asked for guidance on which Bach Flower remedies people can use for their dogs. As there aren’t many books available on the subject I felt it was time to write one that explores how the combination of the remedies and behaviour therapy can make a significant difference to wellbeing.
Used alone, the remedies can help, especially in an emergency situation, but I prefer to use them as an adjunct to behaviour work. It’s important to understand the dog’s emotional and mental state and to determine the cause, when possible, so that you can select the right remedy and pair this with therapy that is tailored for the individual dog. I’ve seen extraordinary, life-enhancing, long-term results from this. The book is dedicated to Skye, my beautiful deerhound mix who passed away last year, aged 11, and who was an inspiration to me throughout his life. Skye was a healer dog who helped me to rehabilitate many traumatised, fearful and terminally ill dogs who came to live with us. The gorgeous cover painting by Rachel Meadows is of Skye.(https://www.facebook.com/MeadowsArt/)
Emotional Healing for Dogs describes how you can combine Bach Flower Remedies and gentle behaviour therapy to help your dog recover from emotional issues. The descriptions for each remedy include the remedy’s keywords, transformational effects, the associated behavioural profile, indicators for how each remedy can help the dog, physical signs such as body language and mode of communication, and practical guidance on behaviour therapy.
Lisa is the author of 35 books on a wide variety of subjects, including 5 other books about dog behaviour and training, and 3 novels. She’s the founder and principal of The International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour Ltd (www.theiscp.com), an accredited global distance learning college that has students in 57 countries. Lisa also founded The Dog Welfare Alliance (www.dogwelfarealliance.com) and co-founded ICAN, the International Companion Animal Network (www.companionanimal.network).
