About this course

 Each animal friend has a unique natural make-up or "-tude" that guides them through life. Using the Chinese Medicine physiology circle and star systems of the Five Forces of  Nature, we explore each of these "-tude"  pictures. This course focuses on the "Fire-tude," the charismatic royal jester of the family.  Our furry friends are treasured family members, and in addition to being themselves, they are our protectors and therapists who assist us physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Dr. Schwartz offers recommendations on  how to connect, train, feed, supplement and overall support your animal friends.  All this  to facilitate and maximize your animal friend's place as a loving member of the family and to support health, contentment and well-being.
