Hi Everyone,

Joanne Clodfelter uses EFT to change the behavior of her friend's dog after tapping the dog for her friend's concerns.

Hugs, Gary

By Joanne Clodfelter

My friend Anita had houseguests all weekend.  While her friends were visiting, her dog, Mika, started to lick her right haunch.  Over the course of the weekend, Mika developed a fist-sized, gaping wound that she had given to herself from the non-stop licking.  Anita had taken the dog to the vet who had prescribed steroids, and a cone to wear around the neck.  The steroids weren't helping.

I offered to go over to Anita's house and try EFT on her dog.  I had read in the EFT newsletter that about 80% of animal issues are our own issues that they absorb from us. This is because we live in such close proximity with our pets.

Several years ago Mika had bitten a toddler, and the little girl required plastic surgery.  The girl had been screaming at Mika, and Mika responded by biting her in the face.

When Anita's houseguests were visiting, the male guest was a fan of the Dog Whisperer, and was trying some of those techniques on Mika.  This made Anita nervous.  I asked Anita what HER emotions were while she had the houseguests.  She replied that she was afraid that Mika was going to bite the male houseguest when he was trying the dog whisperer techniques.

I realized that Mika had picked up on Anita's fears, and was showing Anita that she wasn't going to bite anyone except herself … thus the self-inflicted wound.  So we did the problem statement on the left side.  We tapped on ourselves saying, Even though Mommy Anita is afraid that I was going to bite her guest…

After doing the problem on the left side, we tapped a positive on our right sides.  I, Mika, am a GOOD dog.  I only display behaviors that are pleasing to Mommy Anita.

During this time, Mika was lying on the floor between us and appeared to be sleeping.  After we tapped, Anita removed the cone.  While we were in her living room, the mail carrier placed the mail in the mailbox on her front porch.  Mika continued to snooze.  Anita said that was the first time she could recall that her dog had not barked when the mail carrier came up on the porch.  Anita never had to put the cone back on.  Mika never licked the wound again, and it healed in about a week.
