Total Wellbeing for Dogs went beyond the basics of pet care and tapped into how to understand each dog as an individual. Amanda explained in detail how to encourage greater health and wellbeing not for all dogs, but for my dog. She also helped me eliminate the issues of trust and fear that little Scarlett was having.
I heard Amanda tell her amazing story of healing her dog through Ayurveda. A lightbulb went off when she talked about her dog licking off her hair and chewing her feet. Our Yorkiepoo, Bailey, had recently scratched an infected wound in her neck and had chewed her tail to bits. Before I learned of Sama Dog, Bailey walked out of the vet with antibiotics and a cone of shame neither of which actually stopped the itching. What the vet couldn’t do was help me address the underlying cause of her behavior. The Sama Dog courses taught me simple dietary changes & fun behavioral tools to use with Bailey. Bailey’s itching has stopped. Her tail is back to normal and we are now equipped to help her have a long, healthy life!
Just wanted to say I LOVE your Sama Dog meditations! I listen with Molly and Charlie and they seem to love it too. Thanks so much for producing it. The messages about the gifts the dogs bring us are something I've always intuitively known, but have never been able to articulate. Thanks for articulating so beautifully. I also really love the background music. Thanks for all you do!
Rise and Shine with Your Pet
No matter how we feel about mornings, our pets tend to spring out of bed, full of enthusiasm for the day. In this meditation, we'll explore how to greet each new day with love, gratitude, and wonder.
Build a Routine with Your Pet
Pets, like many people, tend to thrive on routine. This session will explore healthy habits for you and your animal companions, including a guided meditation you can practice together regularly.
Unleash Freedom with Your Pet
When was the last time you made space for spontaneity? In this meditation, you'll imagine tossing whatever is keeping you or your pet tethered (from leashes to schedules), and enjoying the freedom to simply be.
Communicate Better with Your Pet
Our pets are constantly looking to us for verbal and nonverbal cues — and they often comprehend much more than we think! In this meditation, we'll explore communication from our pets' point of view to deepen understanding.
