Dr Isla Fishburn (Kachina Canine Communication) Training

11-13 November 2017

Saturday / Sunday – 2 Day Seminar
If you would like to understand more about canine wellness and an holistic approach that explores the physical, physiological, psychological and spiritual health of your dog and how this can affect a dog’s natural communication and behaviour, this course is for you!
The general theme is focusing on how to optimise a dog’s wellbeing potential and to maintain a dog’s relaxation response.
Monday
Zoopharmacognosy refers to the natural process by which wild animals can self medicate to heal themselves emotionally, mentally and/or physically by naturally foraging plants, algae, clay, essential oils, and other natural remedies. This practice is specific to each individual and its need to prevent disease and improve individual wellbeing. If a remedy is given to the animal that does not want or need it, then negative effects may be seen – what is one individual’s poison is another individual’s cure.
Applied Zoopharmacognosy (AZ) refers to giving domestic animals an opportunity to self medicate by offering them nature’s remedies that they would otherwise not be able to forage for, given we limit the access a dog can have to forage and roam.

Class Format

Saturday 11th / Sunday 12th – Theory days

Dr Isla Fishburn focuses on the fundamental need for an animal to feel safe and how emotions influence the behavioural response of a dog. Using her experience of animal behaviour, zoology, canine biology, behaviour and learning theory Dr Isla Fishburn will talk you through the canine wellness, the different causes of wellness, what is normal, what is abnormal and why abnormal behaviour can occur in dogs through one or several different routes. Dr Fishburn will discuss the importance of wellbeing and what we need to consider in order to provide our dogs’ with a life that is healthy, balanced and that meets the needs of each dog as an individual.

Dogs, like any animal, need to have freedom; freedom of movement, choices, escape, feelings and opinions. This is what these courses explore and teach you about the causes of dog behaviour outside human influence (e.g. training) and how these shape how a dog responds towards certain stimuli. You will come to understand the wellbeing of each dog as an individual and why no two dogs are the same.

You will learn about:
– Applying a wellbeing framework to our dog’s every day living
– The natural biology of a dog
– Lessons from nature to understand canine behaviour
– The different causes of behaviour, what is normal and what is abnormal
– The vital importance of diet for life and health; why diet and health and diet and communication are linked
– Natural competition in dogs and why, when and how does this occur
– The first principles of trust and calm energy a dog needs from you – its role model and teacher
– Natural communication from nose to tail, miscommunication, conflict and how dogs communicate to each other
– What is aggressive behaviour, why does this occur, when does it arise and how can we prevent/control it
– The importance of environment to a dog, to us and the natural life stage of a dog
– The importance of human guardians and their effect on a dog’s wellbeing
– The benefit of natural healing approaches to help a dog’s wellbeing.
– How the emotional/mental state of your dog can impact its behaviour
– How we, as human role models for dogs can alter the way they respond and what we need to consider about ourselves
– The benefits of natural healing techniques and why dogs respond well to them

You will gain many skills and techniques to learn how to optimise your dog’s wellbeing potential and how to ensure you and your dog are uniting via natural alignment. This will support you in observing your dog from a totally different perspective, improve the connection you have with your dog and deepen your spiritual connection; a necessity for health and wellness for all.

Monday 13th

There are 2 places available for dogs and handlers (please contact me if you would like your dog to take part – Cost will be £50) – each dog will get an estimated 3 hours to work with Dr Fishburn, all other places are observer spaces, they will be watching and have the chance to ask questions to gain an understanding of AZ.

A session is led by the dog rather than the human but is based on gaining an understanding about the conditions and situation for the dog in question. The dog will know what will benefit its health and wellbeing. In some circumstances, usually associated with deep emotional issues, a dog may need to work with other remedies before fully opening up and coming to terms with an event that has affected them emotionally.

The dog’s responses are carefully observed and their behaviour and body language will guide the zoopharmacognosy practitioner in understanding what is needed and what is not and which methods of delivery are required. A session ends usually by the dog then needing to process the session.

AZ has helped many dogs with all manner of problems, including
~ Behavioural issues including reactivity, trauma, obsessive behaviours
~ Fungal infections
~ Allergies
~ Pain relief
~ Auto-immune disease
~ Weight gain
~ Hormonal support
~ Organ support (e.g. kidneys, liver, urinary problems)
~ Digestive support
~ Medical conditions
