2 Hours Devoted to Your Dog's Wellbeing

Many of us face frustrating habits, confusing behaviors, pesky health challenges and sometimes unique circumstances with our dogs. Oftentimes these situations arise and continue because the root of the issue is not being addressed, or could be looked at from a more holistic perspective.

In this private consultation, you’ll receive the wisdom of Ayurveda and an array of other natural healing practices, applied your dog's specific needs. Amanda will help you discover what may be behind their behaviors, and learn individualized techniques and tools to lovingly bring them back into balance.

This multi-session option is available to allow time for integration of the recommendations and assessment of your dog's progress, step by step.

The consultation package includes:

  • 2 hours of session time over 2 or 3 sessions — you decide. The first session is minimum 45 minutes, with follow up sessions over the next month or so
  • Intake assessment and quiz to determine your pet’s dosha, or mind-body type
  • Comprehensive written recommendations with direct connection to each suggestion, product, etc.

Consultation Testimonial

I heard Amanda speak about her amazing story of healing her dog through Ayurveda. A light bulb went off when she talked about her dog licking off her hair and chewing her feet. Our Yorkiepoo, Bailey, had recently scratched an infected wound in her neck and had chewed her tail to bits. Before I learned of Sama Dog, Bailey walked out of the vet with antibiotics and a cone of shame – neither of which actually stopped the itching. What the vet couldn't do was help me address the underlying cause of her behavior. One conversation with Amanda led me to simple dietary changes and fun behavioral tools to use with Bailey. Amanda knows dogs and has done extensive research on the dietary, behavioral and spiritual aspects of dogness. She is generous, clear and downright delightful to talk with. Bailey's itching has stopped. Her tail is back to normal, and we are now equipped to help her have a long, healthy life the way she was designed to live. I am grateful to Amanda and Sama Dog for helping us resolve a chronic health issue easily, naturally and with so much joy! Bailey had something she wanted to add: "Arf. Arf. Arfity. Arf!" (Translation = Thank you!)
