I've recently got a job working with animals. Tomorrow will be my third day. Some of them are aggressive or anxious. Do you know of any stones I could wear on me that are helpful when working with animals? Do you have any other suggestions? Thank you for all your help and advice. I really appreciate it :)
green apatite is ideal for calming frightened, anxious and/or aggressive animals — it’s especially useful when gaining the trust of an animal. rose quartz would also be very good.
as for other suggestions — I used to be a vet assistant, so I suggest paying close attention to the animal’s body language. understand when it’s time to back off and give an animal space, try to limit their stress as much as possible. speak in a soothing voice and do not to stare them down. avoid sudden movements and teach them to associate good things (food, treats, petting) with you.
