A close connection to your dog is profound and many would consider their dog a best friend. It is no less powerful than a human connection. Some say it can be more powerful because love from your dog can be more unconditional compared to human love. The level of closeness in a relationship results in the level of pain you experience during the loss. For example, you can have more intense grief for the loss of your dog than your grandmother. It could be because you rarely visited your grandmother and the bond was superficial. In comparison, you fed your dog daily and cleaned its bowls. You attended to its health and had affection. Perhaps your dog was with you and around you so much more than your grandmother. People often confide in their dogs by speaking to them about deep and personal things. The presence of your dog and its ability to just listen is so powerful.
It does not matter how old your dog was when it died or went missing. This program will aim to help you process emotional pain which can keep you stuck and unable to move forward in your life.
