Personally tested on a spunky Golden Retriever puppy, here are a few life changing tips I have found! I have been working on "perfecting" this schedule based on feedback from , what my clients in my private practice are asking for, as well as collaboration with other businesses in GR! I am SO excited to finally release these dates to you. Please feel free to share this newsletter with anyone you think would benefit from participating in our live events. Opening Scissors Syndrome. This is how I get my point across to my clients when they look at me cross-eyed after we discuss their breathing pattern.
