Bach Flower Remedies for Agility

Restoring natural balance and well being

Dr. Edward Bach first discovered the Bach Flower Remedies in the 1930s. The remedies work on the emotions, gently restoring well-being. Any member of your family (including your dog) who is in need of emotional support can use them. The Remedies work extremely well on animals especially dogs. Chris Drinkhall describes a few that could of help to anybody involved in the sport of agility.

The Remedies mentioned below are just a selection of the 38 that are available to use either singularly or combined up to seven in a bottle with spring water.

The Remedies are completely harmless. If the wrong Remedy is chosen, it just doesnít work. Full stop. It wonít cause any ill effects.

The recommended dosage is four drops four time a day. Add the drops to a treat; you can also add 6-8 drops to the dogís drinking water.

'I have a questionnaire that I send out to any one interested in the Bach Flowers for either themselves or a pet,' says Chris Drinkhall, one of the few practitioners in the UK specialising in animals. ' I also like to talk to the owners where possible.  I post the remedies out to the client with full instructions. When the right remedies are chosen, the results can be very impressive.'
