Herbalism

Practical Herbalism- Common Canine Conditions

You will find an absolute wealth of information here, including recipes, practical exercises you can do long after the course is finished, as well as detailed information about addressing common ailments at home with commercial or better yet, your own home made tinctures, electuaries, poultices and salves. I’ve structured this course to cover everything a home herbalist working with dogs will need on an everyday basis, but presented it system-by system, so those who wish to use this course as a foundation for deeper study will have a very solid grounding in not only herbal preparation and selection but the canine body systems and multiple common health issues and conditions.

Online Tutorials

Super Tutorial - Nutrition and Herbs for Common Canine Conditions

This comprehensive tutorial will span 6 months, and will cover herbal and dietary support for and prevention of common canine disorders.

While it will incorporate some of the material included in previous tutorials, the bulk of the notes and information will be new.

What I am aiming to provide in this “Super Tutorial” is a comprehensive overview of how herbs and diet work together, to prevent and manage a wide variety of canine health conditions.  As  with all my courses, we will evaluate both the science and the popular trends impartially. I draw on both formal training, decades of study and professional experience, to provide the most wide ranging and objective information, so you can be empowered to make the best decisions for your dogs.

Home Cooking for Dogs- Online Tutorial

This tutorial runs out of a Facebook classroom, and consists of ten sections, as described in the write-up here: https://www.thepossiblecanine.com/fall-tutorial-home-cooking-for-dogs

I will be present in the classroom twice a week for two hours each time, to discuss each topic in detail and answer questions from the group. This tutorial will provide focused information you can rely on,  work with and utilize. I endeavour to make it enjoyable and easy to follow at the same time it will be thorough and detailed.

There are no assignments,  but plenty of exercises and weekly discussions. I will be “live” in the classroom twice a week,  for discussion time but will collect and answer questions asked  in between those times.

 

 

Online Tutorial – Herbal Medicine for Dogs and Cats

This Tutorial operates similarly to the nutrition version, as it is completely online, run out of a Facebook group, with posted material every week and regular discussions throughout the week. This information-packed Tutorial will run from June 10  to September 2nd, but you will have lifetime access to the materials. We will start with an overview of herbalism, how Western herbalism is unique and parallels, but differs from Chinese and Ayurvedic methods, then discuss the all -important terms of the trade, touch on how to prepare your own herbal medicines for your furry family, and then go into conditions associated with the body systems, herbs to consider for supporting these systems, and wrap up with a special unit on cancer and one on prevention/managing everyday issues with herbs (not covered in the previous lessons).
