Real Dog Yoga by Jo-Rosie Haffenden


Add to wishlist

In today’s world we put huge demands on our canine partners, expecting them to fit in with our lifestyles, abandoning natural instincts when they are not convenient for us. Our dogs do remarkably well to keep up with these high expectations, but surely it is time to give them a clue as to what it is we want from them, and more importantly, to spend some time listening. 

Inspired by her own badly abused rescue dog, Archie, Haffenden has developed a technique that calms and relaxes, improves focus and impulse control and promotes body consciousness. Using a mixtures of postures, movements and expressions, Haffenden shows us how to teach our dogs to be calm, relaxed individuals and prevent the escalation of behaviours borne from frustration. 

Haffenden begins by describing Dog Yoga as a mix between the competitive equestrian sport dressage, canine obedience and animal trick training. This differs hugely to Doga, an unfortunate trend of people doing human yoga with their dogs. Real Dog Yoga is based on the idea, supported by research, that physical posturing and expressions can influence a dog’s emotional state. It sets to train sequences of positive and calming postures, practiced in a sequence to promote good mental, physical and emotional health, as well as calmness. It consists of 30 postures, 15 expressions and 10 actions, training dogs in muscle control, body consciousness, focus of mind and impulse control.

Edition: 2015 Paperback, 198 pages.
