has parking. A great location, warm and welcoming and you can do a circular dog walk after in the amazing grounds, which features a fresh water lake and some ancient trees.
Venue: The Retreat New Forest (Formally the East Close Hotel)
Your chance to experience a soothing " Gong Bath" for your dog and for
yourself. Sharing in the healing experience together. Sound therapy can
help with pain issues, locked in trauma, behaviourial issues and stress or
just add to wellbeing and quality of life.
So how does it help? Scientific studies show how sound therapy oxygenates
cells and reduces inflammation. Inflammation in the body can be caused by
stress, poor diet, old traumas, recent distress, chronic stress, injury,
arthritis and other canine and human conditions. This is why it is so
beneficial for both dog and human.
We shall start by easing our dogs into the session with a self-selection
of essential oils to activate their sense of smell. Nicky will demonstrate
a basic massage to calm our dogs into the space. Scania will then lead us
into a soothing journey with sound therapy and we shall finish with a
brief meditation (time allowing).
GUIDELINES FOR BRINGING YOUR DOG:
The venue is dog friendly to well socialised, quiet dogs and dogs who are
public place toilet trained. If your dog struggles in group settings or
public places to remain calm, quiet and friendly with humans and other
dogs; then you may need some help beforehand to acclimatise your dog to
Nicky offers an 8 point program to helping your dog attend group settings.
We would not want to bring a dog to a setting that could potentially make
them feel worse.
Becoming aware of the distance at which your dog becomes reactive (the
very first signs of alertness and tension, not the point they act out to
the trigger) will help you establish how far you need to be away from the
trigger in this type of setting.
Contact Nicky to help you with the rest as we would love to welcome you all.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE
Arrive 15 minutes early prompt start for 11am at the venue and allow you and your dog time to
settle. A walk around the perimenter of the room usually helps dogs to
settle quicker and allowing them (if appropriate) to say hello to fellow
dogs and humans in the group. Bring something comfy to lay on for both you
and your dog, perhaps a yoga mat (double up if you get cold), pillow,
blanket for your dog as well as you and water. A brief explanation of what
will happen will take place.
