Camels are a very receptive animal. They have been used domestically for thousands of years and have found their way into the folklore of many cultures around the world.
From this, old camel handling methods have developed in conjunction with culture of the regions where camels have been domesticated for work. Most of these regions are harsh environmentally. That is, they are usually low rainfall regions where food sources are scarce and the terrain is harsh.
There is an old but very wise saying, : a thirsty camel is a dangerous camel. This comes about when a camel is at water for the first time in quite a while. They want one thin only, water. The same goes for food. A camel will forego any instructions for food, that is unless instructions is accompanied with harsh and physically violent action by the handler.
Whilst this may or may not still be the case in suchg regions of the world, in the western world whereby camel food and water is plentiful for our pet camels, attention can be diverted to the more spiritual connection that can be achieved between camel and handler.
The camel is happy, has readily available source of water, food and space. Not much is asked from the camel compared to the working camels in some overseas locations and is considered to be a part of the family.
This allows for different techniques of camel handling to take place, connecting with the camel in a deep soulful manner that has a bond between handler and camel that one finds hard to describe.
Learning the techniques of such handling is a journey within itself. You have no choice but to have to look deep within yourself to see who you are as a person, how you are presented to others, your good traits and where there is room for improvement. Tve he camel sees all of who you are.

What sort of experience do you want the camel to have when connecting with you?
What will the lasting memories be of you in the camels mind?
How can you use the connecting bonds between you and the camel to a mutual benificially relationship?
So many questions arise from this topic as it hits hard at the very core of who we are as people in relationship to the animal kingdom.
