My 9-lb miniature poodle Rico was in an unexpected & unfortunate altercation with a Rottweiler. He incurred 5 puncture wounds that thankfully did not draw blood. Needless to say he was very traumatized by the incident and was immediately skiddish to any other dogs, people he did not know and sounds of all kinds.
I knew how I felt about the entire encounter but wanted to better understand what Rico was thinking & feeling about it. I asked Ms. Morrison to speak with Rico. Her insight and conveyance to me as to what Rico was thinking & feeling gave me a calmness that helped me address Rico’s needs in working his way back to his usual everyday adorable ‘no issues’ dog!
Thank you so much Liz.
