Our Holistic Services

I became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2006 and completed my Merisha Canine Massage certification in 2014.

Combining these gives the best of both worlds when it comes to holistic offerings.

Crystal Healing is something I added later as my love and knowledge of crystals and their benefits grew. Canine Dental Cleans are a new addition but make perfect sense. Looking after our gundogs teeth is so important and this is a stress free way to ensure they can enjoy retrieves for many years to come!

Holistic Support for your gundog

Confident Canine offers Holistic support for you and your gundog, balancing both ends of the lead!

Do you have a sensitive gundog who would benefit from balance? Reiki would be a great benefit!

Do you have an energetic gundog who can’t switch off? Both Reiki & Massage offer huge benefits.

Are you working your gundog or are they just really active? Massage will help keep them fit for function.

Want to help ensure your gundog can enjoy retrieves well into old age? Ultrasonic dental cleans keep their teeth and gums healthy which also helps support general health.

Canine Reiki & Massage

Canine Massage will help keep your gundog fit for function for many years to come. No matter if you are training for field work or just for fun ensure their body is well supported!

Merisha Massage uses deep tissue mobilisation techniques; releases muscle and soft tissue tension and enhances joint movement. Merisha Massage can be used to aid sports performance, support rehabilitation, and improve well-being. Merisha Massage is also a wonderful way to reduce the risk of injury by keeping your dog well-conditioned.

Gundogs can reap huge benefits from Reiki sessions.

Ideal for gundogs who struggle to stop/settle, who are anxious &/or reactive, are really sensitive to surroundings, people, dogs &/or being left alone. If you are unsure if it might be something for your gundog, get in touch for a chat.

Reiki benefits dogs by promoting overall well-being—calming emotions, enhancing confidence, and supporting physical healing.

Recognised by the NHS for its positive impact on humans, Reiki serves as a great tool for keeping your dog in top shape, mentally and physically.

Sessions last 1hr and you must obtain veterinary consent, using our form, prior to your dog starting their treatment.

If you would like to have a chat about the suitability of Reiki or Massage for your dog please call me anytime on 07917 445830 for a chat about your dog and their needs.

Crystals can be used alone or as part of a massage or Reiki treatment. They provide a calming effect, alleviating stress, and anxiety and therefore helping with some behavioural issues.

More about Holistic Walks

Only 4 dog/handlers are allowed on each walk.

These walks welcome reactive &/or anxious dogs but are not suitable for aggressive dogs (if you are unsure about your dog just get in touch with me for a chat). These walks will allow each dog/handler space and are not for socialisation in the sense of play etc but for simply learning to walk around with other dogs and people calmly.

 

In Purleigh, Essex. Local to my main training site but not actually on that site.

Thursday Mornings between 10am and 12pm (times vary depending on the walk slot you book)

The cost of each hours walk is £22 and they are booked in blocks of a commitment of 6 walks at a total cost of £132

Holistic Group Walks

Holistic group walks are organised to allow each dog/handler space and are not for socialisation in the sense of play etc but for simply learning to “just be” around other dogs and people calmly by using holistic techniques taught during each session.

Techniques used will involve meditations, mindfulness, breathwork, energy work and some more traditional training techniques, these walks focus on your and your dogs emotional journeys.

Each group walk lasts for 1 hour.

Remember: If you would like to have a chat about the suitability of these walks for you and your dog feel free to contact me for a chat about your dog and their needs.

Canine Ultrasonic Dental Cleans

I am excited to be able to offer this service at Confident Canine, always looking for ways to support and enhance the lives of the gundogs that I work with, as naturally as possible. This simple yet effective way of conducting a dental clean for your gundog is a fantastic addition.

If your dog doesn’t already have a build up on their teeth, remember, just like it is with us humans…. Prevention is far better than cure!

Emmi-pet can effectively combat:

  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontitis
  • Oral cavity diseases
  • Plaque and tartar build-up
  • Bad breath

More about Dental Cleans

Absolutely not, your dog will not even feel the ultrasonic waves during the session.

If I am unable to settle your dog to comfortably and calmly accept the treatment within a few sessions, I will discuss this fully with you and if unable to continue, any payments made on account for future treatments will be refunded.

It depends on the current state of your dogs teeth when they start. A heavy plaque build up can take 10 or more treatments to see a difference. If your dog has light build up then you should notice the difference immediately.

No. Whilst most dogs teeth can be cleaned, initially I will need to see your dogs teeth to assess their suitability for an Ultrasonic Dental Clean.

Excessive build up, swollen or sore gums etc would need referral to a veterinarian to ensure they are happy with your dogs teeth first.

More about Pregnancy Scans

The optimum time to scan is between 28-35 days from mating if you wish to have an idea of numbers, however any time after day 28 is fine if you just wish to have pregnancy confirmed.

No, but I’d avoid any big meals just for their comfort.

No, they may be more comfortable during the scan if they have had a wee but if they haven’t this will not affect the quality of their scan.

No. But I do take clips throughout the scan and replay those afterwards so that can you record them on your mobile phone or tablet to keep them.
