Ethology is the study of animal behaviour, and a very big part of this study is the effect that companion animals and people have on each other. It is a well-documented fact that the human-animal bond is a profound one.
Working with the Huskies from the Husky Rescue Centre we are able to help both people and Huskies through Animal Assisted Therapy utilizing a system called Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) to get to the Heart of the Matter in dealing with mental health issues.
