Owner Training

Herbal Shenanigans is a seasonal journey through the world of innate selection and medical herbalism tailored specifically for the health and well-being of animals. This course is structured around the natural cycle of the year, starting with Winter Stasis, moving into Spring Detoxification, flourishing into Summer Abundance, and concluding with Autumn Catabolism. Each season focuses on the unique properties of local forage herbs, demonstrating their beneficial effects on various bodily systems to achieve a holistic balance by year's end. Participants will learn how each season supports specific bodily systems and the rationale behind the seasonal approach to bringing animals back to health. Through this course, you'll gain a deep understanding of how to harness the power of seasonal herbs to promote healing and maintain the well-being of animals.

This is our founding training programme and is a monthly membership course for owners and practitioners interested in expanding, learning new or developing their animal applied behaviour and botanical knowledge. This course offers a comprehensive exploration into the use of plants for animal health, suitable for all levels of experience.

What can you expect from immersing in the herbal journey for you and your animals?

At Animal Botanical, we understand the challenges you and your animals face when it comes to acute and chronic health issues, reactivity, trauma, and emotional well-being. We're here to provide the empathy, knowledge, and support you need to reverse these conditions and build resilience and vitality along the way. 

We also recognise that herbal immersion is so much more than a health journey, especially for animals. Herbs are about enrichment, fun, play and togetherness. They help us bond to our animals and in ways we may not have experienced before. 

Herbs help us open up the natural world and all its wonders not only for health but also for happiness.

We are a community all seeking ways to improve our lives naturally with empathy, love and a big hearted smile.

It’s like you’re part of something so special and spiritual almost

You really feel that you’ve helped them help themselves. They trust you, connect with you and are content. It’s a gift to offer them and to share with them”



Return to health for your animals

Together we show you how the botanicals, the seasons and our animals connect. We seek in nature answers to dysfunctions and show you how to use herbs to heal.

We specialise in teaching an in depth and energetic understanding of the botanicals we can use daily. 

The healing journey is one that will bring back to balance the physical body, aid the release of emotional traumas and help transition through the spiritual planes. 



Knowledge on safe and effective herbs

We’ll mix it up: different tools, different herbs, different animals and different owners. Each herbal offering provides something unique to you. We provide the knowledge so you care for your animal in a guilt free, shame free space. Where the ethos of choice, enrichment and empowerment take precedent. Work with the herbs and facilitate the healing space while we provide the knowledge and support. We use the science while also acknowledging the energy, mystery and magic of herbal connection.

"My favourite thing was that incredible affirmation of my belief that nature is outstanding, but at levels I hadn't appreciated before. That nature provides exactly what is needed for health and wellbeing as the seasons change. Learning how the herbs growing suit the conditions our animals typically experience, blew my heart and mind wide open".
