Publisher's Summary

This quadruple award-winning book combines the deep connection we have with our dogs and our connection to nature by weaving together the practice of forest bathing with our practice of walking our dogs with practical tips and stories and bringing more joy and depth to both.

Is forest bathing for me and my dog? Yes! You don’t need a swimsuit - no special attire required. Forest bathing is accessible to all levels of fitness and mobility. It is a new (and very old) type of restorative stroll in the woods with your dog.

Why do forest bathing with my dog? If you feel like you are bouncing from one thing to the next, never relaxing, forest bathing will reduce your stress, reset your nervous systems, have lasting positive effects on your immune system, and increase the well-being 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 forest-bathe 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 your senses to tune in to the smells, textures, tastes, and sights of the forest.

It’s 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 your relationships with your dog, the forests you walk in, and the land you live on.
