:: TOTAL WELLBEING FOR DOGS :: 
The 6 Pillars of a Truly Balanced Canine

Our signature 6-week online course to explore and integrate six key areas of optimal wellbeing for your beloved dog. A new but very old way of healing — this is the only course in the world of its kind.

I struggled for years to relieve my poor dog Maya from severe and debilitating skin issues. I was completely dismayed by only being prescribed medicines which helped relieve some symptoms, at best. She was declining rapidly and it pained me to witness.

Being a practitioner and teacher of natural wellness (specialized in Ayurveda) for almost 20 years, I understand how the body is able to restore itself if only given the right environment and opportunity. Maya clearly wasn’t being given that. I decided then and there to try applying these fundamental healing principles to every every aspect of her life. Within a few weeks, I noticed significant improvement. A few months, major changes. A few years, an entirely different dog. Friends from the past still come over and ask, “Where’s Maya?” when she’s right in front of them.

So was born my passion for sharing this healing path with other devoted dog parents, some of who may feel similar struggles, or know there must be a better way. Just as with our own healthcare, we can become our dogs best healer.

In this course I’ll provide you the foundation to helping your dog truly be their healthiest, happiest selves.

WHAT ARE SAMA DOG'S SIX PILLARS OF WELLBEING?

  2. FOOD: Optimal nutrition and balancing foods (specifically for your dog)

  3. BEHAVIOR: Training according to your dog’s mind/body type and creating an optimal daily routine

  4. BODY/MIND: Heal through the 5 senses – learn to balance your dog with sound, sight, taste, touch and smell

What do PREVIOUS ATTENDEES say about the course?

<<< Video: Rina G. and Coco share their experience in the course (when offered in-person in San Diego.)

"This Course was useful for anyone wanting to learn alternative ways of understanding and deepening the bond with their pet. You not only learn about your pets Dosha, but how it all links with nutrition, behavior, communication and the health and well being of your fur baby. Amanda immediately creates a space of loving intention and holds your attention throughout, you will laugh, cry, and most of all find a deeper meaning of bonding with your dog."

"The Wellbeing for Dogs course exceeded my expectations. It was truly well done and I enjoyed participating in this type of educational opportunity. It opened my heart and lit up my soul. From one dog/animal lover to another…there was so much valuable information that helps give me a better understanding and connection to my beloved Tori. The special guest speakers were also amazing and enlightening."
— Cindy M. & Tori the therapy dog

"Total Wellbeing for Dogs helped me connect with my foster pup on a deeper level. It went beyond the basics of pet care and tapped into how to understand each dog as an individual. Amanda explained in detail how to encourage greater health and wellbeing not for all dogs, but for my dog. She also helped me eliminate the issues of trust and fear that little Scarlett was having. "

—>>>> FAQ <<<<—

DOES THIS INFORMATION APPLY TO CATS? WILL IT HELP ME WITH MINE? 

Yes, the information you learn and the concepts shared in this class series do relate to both dogs and cats, and most other animals. Ayurveda is "the science/wisdom of life," so nothing is excluded. With that being said, when we get into some specific conversations - especially around nutrition and supplements - the needs of dogs are different from the needs of cats, so that will be noted and therefore less applicable.

DO I NEED ANY EXPERIENCE WITH AYURVEDA TO TAKE THIS COURSE? DO I EVEN NEED TO KNOW WHAT IT IS AT ALL?

No experience or knowledge of Ayurveda - or any of the related teachings like meditation or yoga - is needed to relate to and fully understand this course. We'll take it from the top and lay a complete foundation of the principles before moving into more detail. Additional references will also be suggested for further studies, if desired. 

WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE ALL THE SESSIONS? OR, ACTUALLY, ANY OF THEM?

Not to worry, every class in the series will be recorded, in both audio and video, and will be sent to all registrants of the course shortly after it's completed.
