Above are images of me practicing “Canine Contact” with:
Oliver, Maya, Jenny, Odabear (Otis) and Carmen
I have conditioned all my dogs to stand near me and support my partial weight. Canine Contact gives me and my canines a sense of contact and it is a wonderful form of exercise and spiritual practice. It is an excillerating form of moving meditation using pranayamas and fluid asanas and improvisation using canines natural tendencies for touch, closeness and loyalty.
