Dog Symptoms and Kinesiology

Symptoms in Dogs

Kinesiology is Incredibly Useful for Feedback on Dogs

The following is an excerpt from Chapter Two in my e-book, “The Ultimate Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy Guide for Dogs

“This is a form of muscle testing which is very useful in checking various muscle groups for strengths and weaknesses, to help determine what the proper therapy is for a dog. Essentially, this is a muscle to organ to gland connection, to determine what the cause of illness is. By checking the resistance of the muscle when tested against various substances, we can see if this is empowering to the body or disempowering.

To test an animal, a surrogate holds the substance in his/her hand and places this hand on top of the dog’s body while being tested. With the surrogate’s other arm extended parallel to the ground, the therapist presses down on the arm to determine the strength of the muscle. The surrogate’s ability to hold that arm upward against the pressure determines the energy field. The energy flows from the dog through the surrogate and the weakness or strength will be visible in the surrogate’s body. There will be either a strong, normal or weak response and the therapist can then determine structural, chemical, emotional or energetic imbalances. Applied kinesiology can help the following dog symptoms:

Dog Stress

Dog Anxiety can underlie many challenges

The following is an excerpt from page three in my e-book, “Solutions for Incredible Health and Longevity for Your Dog:”

“To help reduce anxiety and keep it in check, dogs need a structured and consistent routine within the family network. They need to know what’s expected of them as they look to you for cues on how to behave. If they don’t know, they can become:

  •  over-protective
  • worried 
  • over-reactive

They are masters at reading your body language, and facial expressions. That is how the species communicates with each other. They also can tune in to your mental and physical energy instantly.

Dogs need to know what is expected of them. By knowing the protocol, their confidence is increased as is their sense of security. All this leads to a well balanced and happier dog.

Our dogs need regular outlets for their energy. They need to be stimulated with toys and activities. Their intelligence and their physical energy will be used in constructive manners instead of destructive. Maintain a routine with your dog. Walk with them, play with them, train them, groom them and try Tellington Touch.

A stressed dog will generally show it in their behaviour. Signs such as the following can indicate that your dog is dealing with some stress…
