May 2nd, 2019

What an amazing Sunday we had!

I think the whole Universe conspired and supported our 2nd Vita Canis Style to Rescue. After a rainy and very windy Saturday, the sky calmed down and we had a dry, warm and beautiful day.

I think everyone who came would agree with me that this year’s charity dog grooming competition for rescue dogs was AMAZING!! I knew it would be better than last year, we knew what we were doing as we had learned from our mistakes!

The atmosphere of the day was friendly and relaxed, with lots of smiling faces all around. It was so nice to see some old friends as well as new groomers who had never competed before, but wanted to have a go and wanted to do it for a good cause; not just for sake of competing. I think this competition is brilliant for groomers who’ve never competed as it is more relaxing, they have more time and less pressure, and they were also allowed to have a helper. All the dogs were amazing, even though most of them had never been to an environment like this. We had all different breeds and crosses, Bichons, Poodles, Westies, Scotties, and Collies… disabled dogs, and even a few paralysed four-legged friends … and they all coped really well.

Last year we raised almost £4,500 and this year we are gifting the rescue centres with £7,548. How brilliant is that!!

In the next few days, I will find out if any of the dogs looking for a new home found one, that would be even more awesome!

And we are already planning next year 🙂

Next year’s event will be held on the 26th April at the Kennel Club Building in Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire – SAVE THE DATE NOW! 

We have some amazing speakers lined up already, so if you are a dog groomer you will definitely be interested in demos by Louisa Tandy, Mike Wildman, Lisa Hart, Alison Rogers … to name a few!

But we have something for the ‘non-groomers’ too, in fact, for all dog people who are interested in a holistic and natural way of living with dogs.

One of our speakers will be Carolina Griffiths, the founder of Canine Flow, a pioneering Dog Training and Behaviour method, highlighting Emotional Energy Flow in all creatures as the true motivation behind behavioural choices and how we influence it. All behaviour is an expression of emotional energy!

Guided by the energetic and electromagnetic influences surrounding the dog. Your dog is a reflection of your own emotional energies as well as the energy which makes it up at any given moment in time. Using Canine Flow methods you can ensure your dog is always Happy, Calm, and Flexible physically and emotionally, and a strong peaceful teacher for your own spiritual growth.

By becoming the best that we can be through the emotional reflections and understanding of energy our dogs have for us – we can create deep change, wake up and transform planet earth into a greater state.

We will also have Dr. Isla Fishburn founder of Kachina Canine Wellness join us next yearl!

Dr. Isla Fishburn brings science and indigenous wisdom together for canine wellness. Using a wellness approach she teaches you how your dog’s innate character, diet, natural healing, calm environment, trauma and surrounding family dynamics can influence the behaviour of your dog and how to recognise and interpret behaviour and improve wellness.

We are delighted to welcome back Adam Dunn and Rob Fellows who will also join us again next year. Adam is a dog behaviourist and Rob is a Reiki practitioner, both of their talks were very popular this year!

We are also hoping to get a holistic vet on board, so fingers crossed.

And there is still more to come…

I am already excited about next year. Are you?
