Perfect formula for 'wiggle wag bodies' - you know the type - Happy Dogs but too happy to concentrate and listen to any of your requests.
Flower Essence blend of Impatiens for impulse control, Valerian Flowers (never roots in our practice) for relaxation, Yarrow for stubbornness, Star Tulip for grounding, Echinacea for excitability, homeopathic Arnica 30x for mental clarity.
We use Yarrow Flowers not so much for stubbornness but because this is a chronic listening problem and we need a mental breakthrough, a new way of behaving... a bit more co-operation. Look for MORE CALM FOCUS, less stress; not less energy.
TRAINING SECRET = Find a new word to go with the new behavior. If you have repeatedly been saying "don't, stop, quit" and they are not stopping or quitting; choose a new word to mark the new positive action. Also they could be given a job to re-direct the excess energy like:
getting a toy and playing,
introducing a new trick,
15 minutes of 'brain' work is equivalent to a full hour of physical activity to decrease energy levels. (Over-excercise is no 'bueno' for the very young.) Balance is the key.
ZOOM, HUNT, BUCK. = A great BLOG about SETTLE DOWN. Try to stay out of the way of all that happiness - Knocked down by your own Dog is not good for your resume or dating profile.
How about a Cat determined your foot under the covers is a bounty worth the pounce? Claws out and at the ready.
And a Horse feeling his oats? Expressing the joy of being! How happy is that?
