I was at a aged care center the other day runnng my Chair Chi session for residents and across the room, sitting on a chair was a white poodle.
The dog, bared it’s teeth, growled at me and must have thought I was an intruder. Well, I was, but a friendly intruder and it took a while before the poodle settled down but it still stared at me.
During the session I was teaching neck stretches; head slowly turning side to side, and I noticed the poodle imitating us by turning its head too.
It was then I knew I had won over the poodle.
Hmm, maybe I should develop a Chair Chi poodle program. Or maybe a Chair Chi Doggie program, I don’t want to be accused of being poodle biased.
I’ll have to think about that and get back to you.
