Is forest bathing for me and my dog?
Yes! You don’t need swimsuits - no special attire required. Forest bathing is accessible to all levels of fitness and mobility. A new/different type of restorative stroll in the woods with your dog.
Why do forest bathing with my dog?
Do you feel like you are bouncing from one thing to the next never relaxing? Forest bathing reduces stress, resets the nervous system and has lasting positive effects on the immune systems of both you and your dog. This is another way of being outdoors that your dog will love and I think you will too.
What is it like to do forest bathing with my dog?
It’s a natural fit. You don’t have to go far. More of a meander or sitting that pairs easily with the natural rhythm of your regular routine. The aim of forest bathing is to slow down, become immersed in the natural environment, and use our senses to tune in to the smells, textures, tastes and sights of the forest.
It’a love story.
While this book is a guide about forest bathing with your dog, it’s also a bit of a love story about our relationships with our dogs, the forests we walk in and the land we live on.
