What Was I Thinking?

xenaWhen Xena, our newly adopted dog, started showing overly aggressive protection behavior toward both dogs and humans, I thought it was time to call in a dog whisperer type trainer.

I found a nice sounding man out in my neck of the woods who describes himself (without using the word) as an intuitive, with a special gift to be able to read the dog, observe us, and see what dynamics are causing the behavior, which he was clear on saying can’t be ‘trained’ away- gotta change the trust and respect level and such. Well it all made sense so we set up an appointment.

He reminded me that this is an imbalance of energy. Then I gave myself a kick. What was I thinking? My logical go-to was a dog behavior specialist when all along, I never thought to dowse for a homeopathic remedy, or just select one from the Veterinarian’s Homeopathic guide, which I found recommends Belladona and Nux Vomica both as good picks for a dog’s aggression. I never considered Bach flower remedies which clearly deal with emotional states and work well on dogs as well as people. After all, the energy and character of the plant affects both human and k9 alike. Nor did I try any of the numerous radionics charts I have for balancing, reducing noxious energy, and such.

I did a quick look up on the internet, typed in ‘Bach flower remedy aggressive dog’, and got this wonderful chart to help you decide what to use, and how to use it;

Dog Behavior and the appropriate Bach Flower Remedy:


Name Pet Medication
Aspen Bach flower remedy for vague or unaccountable fearful dog behavior. Appearing agitated for no apparent reason. The dog becomes anxious and you can see no cause.
Beech Use this bach flower remedy if the dog is intolerant toward other animals, people, events and situations; they may dislike people or animals.
Crab Apple Bach flower remedy for obsessive cleanliness, fastidiousness. If a dog is constant licking or nibbling on himself, and may have a distaste for eating, mating or defecating. Great for detoxification.
Heather Bach flower remedy for dogs that are overly concerned with companionship because they are lonely. Dog is excessive barking or whimpering to get attention; plead for attention, whining while you are away
Holly Bach flower remedy for jealous behavior toward other dogs, or a new baby in the home. Angry behavior growling, hissing, barking, snapping, or unprovoked attacks.
Impatiens Bach flower remedy for impatient dog behavior seeming to have boundless energy, for dogs that can’t wait for the walk and always run ahead.
Mimulus Bach flower remedy for fearful dog behavior, afraid of lightening, visits to the vet. May shake or shiver when confronted with the thing that frightens them. Shy and timid dog behavior.
Vervain Bach flower remedy for enthusiastic dog behavior, excitable, hyperactive, full of nervous energy; dogs who jump up on visitors, or race around the park to join in ball games.
Vine Bach flower remedy for authoritative, dominant dog behavior, and overly aggressive behavior.

Dose: small dogs 3 drops; medium dogs 5 drops; large dogs 10 drops: three times daily

Give bach flower remedy 3 times daily directly in the dogs mouth or at a small piece of bread. If not possible, the bach flower remedy may be sprinkled over food or given to the drinking water.
When you recognize recovery, do not stop directly, sneak out the therapy. Degrease the doses and give:

3 days 3×3 drops
3 days 2×3 drops
3 days 1×3 drops

Another method (one which is particularly good for a dog in shock) is to rub the bach flower remedy or rescue remedy on pulse points, such as the throat or behind the ears. In case of emergency you can do this every twenty minutes.

Yet another method is listening to the Bach flower remedy tone, and even a dog can do it- I have all 32 of them on my digital radionics software, for an endless source of healing.

    That is a very interesting Bach remedy chart
    I would also reccomend Lycopodium
    It gives a lot of confidence and helps make a dog
    Feel secure. Which in turn makes the other
    Animals in the house more relaxed:)
    I just found your site this week and I am
    Extremely grateful. Thank You!!!
