“This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.”
– By Rumi

Consulting For Professionals

Sensitive Dog offers consulting services for veterinary and dog behavior professionals. The scope of our work in this area relates to compassion fatigue, processing difficult scenarios (past or present), human client challenges, and consulting around ways to increase personal well-being in this often emotional and heartfelt work. 

In working with dogs, we witness suffering and struggle frequently, sometimes daily. We tend to be highly sensitive and empathic people. We commonly embody the archetype of the wounded healer, the hero, and the caregiver. Many of us have found ourselves fulfilling our passion of working with dogs in a sometimes contentious industry that can feel competitive, egoic, cut-throat and unsupportive. The behavior among professionals is evidence of that. The truth is, we can only help dogs and their humans grow and heal to the extent that we have done this for ourselves. Every dog is a teacher. Every challenge is an opportunity for growth and awareness.  

Consulting for professionals is offered on a case-by-case, hourly basis via phone, Zoom or in-person. There is no program you must join or long-term commitment you must make to access this service. Simply reach out via email to schedule an appointment.
