“Dogs were designed to be in constant contact with the earth – “earthing or grounding”. The Earth is an electrical planet – ever vibrating with healthy frequencies and energy and dogs (like us) are a bioelectrical beings whose bodies function electrically.
Emerging science has been revealing how direct contact with the ground allows dogs (and humans and other animals) to receive a life giving energy infusion.
With most companion dogs spending much more time inside, rather then outside on the grass or dirt, we owe it to our dogs to allow them plenty of time to ground or earth as often as possible.”
