      How to Communicate with Your Pets and Help Them Heal

      by Dr Monica Diedrich

      There seems to be an emergency in the middle of the night, but you can't get to the veterinary hospital. Or your pet is living with a chronic condition, and veterinary medicine can't do anything more to relieve it. You are on an emotional roller coaster with worry, fear, grief and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. You wish you could ask your pet to tell you what's wrong. You want, with all your heart, to "Do Something"! Animal Communicator Dr Monica Diedrich faced this very same dilemma when her two-year-old Shih-tzu was close to death. As she lay on the floor beside him, she clearly heard him say, "You call yourself a healer . . . so do something!" She did as he requested, and he experienced an almost miraculous recovery. It was Chop Chop's heart-felt plea that then inspired Dr Monica to develop this series of books. In each book she provides a wealth of both spiritual and practical ideas to help you, as pet parents, "Do Something" when you are faced with similar challenges. In this first book in the series, Dr Monica clearly shows you how to: Engage in a real conversation with your pets about everyday things; Discover where it hurts and what to do about it; Use intention and visualisation as a catalyst for a speedy recovery; Utilise the healing benefits of aura and chakra energy; Select from among six guided meditations to help your pet to heal; Discover your own inner power to use the healing energy of love.

      Rhodesian Ridgeback richtig verstehen: Zusammenleben, Erziehung & Beschäftigung

      by Jansen, Karin

      Rhodesian Ridgebacks impress through athletic prowess, confidence and manner. They do not have a will to please, but ask us what we can do for them. The owner faces the challenge of finding an appropriate way to deal with their hunting instinct and the frequent skepticism of anything unknown. The nature of these dogs as well as emphatic training and occupation are the main concerns of this book, dealing with the breed’s internal rather than external characteristics. Jan Nijboer (Natural Dogmanship®): „Following the advice given in this book, the Rhodesian Ridgeback can enrich the life of every human who – like the Ridgeback himself, is looking for more depth in a relationship!”
