Chakras are energy spinning vortices located in the body. The animal absorbs energy through these centers and it is filtered outwards. When there are energy blockages or imbalances, it may hinder energy flow. If there are no medical issues for your pet from your veterinarian, look to the animals energy field. Blocked chakra symptoms may go hand-in-hand with undesirable behaviour and unusual unpredictable ways of acting out. As you can see, not all concerns can be remedied through dog training alone.
