Mobile Phone Roaming

From June 15th, 2017, there are no roaming charges, unless, you are a heavy user.

The person getting charged, I suggest request Movistar, to reimburse monies, charged beyond 15th June.

Under the new rules, you are only charged the domestic price for calls and texts. But anyone having trouble, go into the phone settings, and turn roaming off.

But you need it turned on, to use a UK sim in Spain- John A

Services Available- Steven Rowle Animal Healing

Animal Healing was recently contacted by TAIL the animal shelter in Torrox Costa, about the rehabilitation of a Staffie called Tor. Tor had been rescued, placed in the shelter and imediately took to fighting other dogs. Thats what Tor had been bred or aquired for in the past. His ears had been cut off to stop other dogs latching on, not an uncommon practice, and he has many scars. Tor went straight into behavioural correct with Steven Rowle.

Steven explains.

When I first met Tor he did not sniff anything, he was all eyes. Dogs should always be sniffing, it tells them what and who you are, where you’ve been and a host of complex messages for their brain. It is a very common characteristic of fighting and stressed dogs, to not sniff anything. I imediately asked that Tor be kept out of the main part of the shelter and put in a quiet area with calm dogs, to begin imprinting positive memories over old ones. I took him and began rehabilitating him straight away. What I actually discovered was a very affectionate and responsive dog. Although his issues were apparent, he was eager to please and responded to correction really well. During his rehabilitation he was introduced to a variety of new dogs of different sizes and breeds, and responded fantastically well on and off the lead. Its all a matter of reprograming the brain and continuing with the positive memories to help Tor to move forward in life.

As Cesar Milan the Dog Whisperer says and I say to everyone I meet, its all about energy. You can interpret human and animal energy into whatever belief system suits you, but you wear your energy like a coat. For instance if I wore a big red coat, anyone who came anywhere near me would see it. The energy we display by our intentions and emotions is exactly the same. The energy we produce both mentally and physically is something for the animal to read. If it is weak and erratic, it is confusing to the dog and you will get all the wrong responses. Tors energy was weak and he was very lacking in confidence. My energy had to be strong, assertive and calm, to overwhelm his, so he would have no choice but to give in to it

There is no Dog that cannot be rehabilitated.

If you like and are experienced with Staffies, Tor could be an excellent addition to the family. You can contact Animal Healing for details or you can contact TAIL directly. If you have any other issues with your Animals, big or small, don’t suffer in silence, contact Animal Healing.
