Bach flowers for dogs - what they can help!

For us dog owners, there is nothing better than going for long walks with our four-legged friends, achieving certain goals together in dog sports, romping around in the garden or simply cuddling with them at home on the sofa. From the very beginning we build up a close relationship with our dog and accompany him through all situations in life.

Sometimes, however, we notice that something is wrong with our little friend. From restlessness to constant barking to aggression or fearful behavior - the dog seems unbalanced, he seems to be out of balance with himself. This can be caused by upsetting life events such as the death of a beloved caregiver, moving to a new environment, abuse or constant confinement. Often, however, we don't understand what exactly triggered the change in behavior. Dogs, like us humans, can have fears of loss, build up aggression, or become stressed in certain situations.

The question is, how can you help your partner with four paws to come to terms with himself again? Here you will find help in the Blachblütentherapie! It was developed in the 1930s by the English doctor Dr. Edward Bach to help with mental imbalance and to act on it through certain substances. Fundamental to Bach Flower Therapy is the assumption that physical health is always related to mental well-being.

What you should consider for the well-being of your dog:

Bach flowers for dogs are a good support for certain mental and psychological imbalances. However, the basic prerequisite for the well-being of your dog is always a species-appropriate attitude and the regular health check at the vet. Changes in behaviour do not always have psychological causes, but can also be an indication of pain or injury.

It is just as important that you, as a dog owner, are able to assess your dog's behaviour and know the basic rules for living together with your beloved four-legged friend. In case of problems, a dog trainer is always a very good help!
