LOST CAT: Seen Phinn?

I walk Maddy and her brother Phinn (the cat) has gone missing for over a day. If you know of any information about his whereabouts please contact me or Jared. Thank you.

Our cat, Phinn, has been missing since Monday from 57th Ave SW near the northern edge of Me-Kwa-Mooks Park. He is about 1.5 years old, has grey stripes, and is microchipped. Please reach out if you see him! Jared 206-310-5424

Aside from dog whispering 😁, I also take photographs that capture the true essence of your dog. I have a background in art and have traveled the world photographing its beauty. If you’d like images of your dog out in nature that are a step-above cell phone photos, I can help you with that. 🐾 📸

I had the pleasure to spend one-on-one time with this bundle of joy! Meet Hattie Mae @jackpabloandapup who likes to bring her A game to all occasions- especially the outdoor kind. Her favorite obsession is a squeaky ball and turning corners so fast no one can see her coming. #boardingdoneright

When I think of the moments with my personal dog, Asia, and the many hours we spent in the wilderness together; I think of the bond that we had, the non-verbal communication that I trusted inexplicably. The subtle body movements I could do for her to know what I needed from her. The confidence that we had in each other without boundaries of fences nor leashes. When she was a puppy- I was dedicated to her well-being and devoted many hours of reward based, force-free training so I could experience this type of dynamic between human and canine. My investment of time and energy was quadrupled in return over the fourteen years I was graced by this one incredible spirit. I was often asked about how I felt being alone out there but don't you see... I was never alone.

If I can give any advice at all and that is to hone in on the recall, the “come” cue or whatever you want to name it. Start with them young and go over it, over and over again, daily. Make it fun, always use a friendly, high pitch voice and be playful! As adults, we forget to be play-use that also as a reinforcer. If you feel and act energetic when you call them the chances of them running back to you just increased. Start at short distances and work up, never stop rewarding cold turkey. Teach them that EVERY time they hear you call them that all they have to do is check-in, receive praise, get scratches (if your dog likes them) and a treat. Do this for at least a year consistently. They are never to be reprimanded when they check-in. If they are, it will be much harder for them to want to come to you the following time. If you build this most important cue you will add so much freedom to your relationship and safety. ❤️🐶

Asia- Vice President of Dog Trots 2007-2022

My partner, my co-pilot, the Vice President of Dog Trots was called home by an angel on Wednesday afternoon. It is with deep sorrow to let you know she left my side when her heart could no longer hold the love she carried. Asia, my Queen, my heart, was 14 years and 3 months. A full life of adventure and purpose. She was graceful, trustful, and beautiful until the end. For the ones who have graced your love on her even for a moment, or throughout the years, thank you.

It’s been a while since I’ve boarded Betti Lou since the pandemic. It’s so nice to have her in my home again, perched like a cat, absorbing the rays before they quickly disappear below the horizon.

Truth!

10/23/2021

🛇 Use your Manners! 🛇
The Sniff test - Stop doing that!
The sniff test - a badly engrained habit that society has been taught, without a clear understanding of what they're actually doing.

🚩When you reach out towards a dog, you are using body pressure AT them, giving them no time to assess whether you are safe & whether they require further investigation to pick up your information. You are forcing an interaction of a relationship that hasn't had time to develop. To some dogs, this is quite rude & the reason a lot of dogs snap at or bite people. This can cause alot of behavioral issues because of layered stress due to forced interactions.

🚩If they are on lead, they have no where to go if they are sensitive to spacial pressure, so can end up shutting down, shying away or snapping at your hand so you back off. This is an example of how a dog is now using pressure to turn off pressure & make you back off so they aren't so stressed.

🚩People think by offering your hand it can give the dog time to sniff to know you're friendly... they can sniff without being forced to sniff your hand.Their noses are far more superior than ours & they don't need close contact forced upon them to smell you.

🚩Some dogs might not want to know you. You have no relationship with them and that's perfectly fine. They aren't your dog so you don't need to touch them or steal pats for your own satisfaction.

🤔 If you are meeting a dog, what should you do?
⚠Ask the owner if you can interact with their dog. Not all people want strangers touching their dogs. Especially strangers who you are unlikely to see again.
⚠Stand up straight & relaxed, with your hands at your side.
⚠Ignore the dog & talk to the owner.
⚠Don't stare at the dog & don't try to force an interaction by going in for a pat. If the dog wants to know you, it will come up to you & sniff around. Usually they will move away & then come back for a second sniffathon. Some dogs will bunt your hands & wag their tails, which are good signs that you're likely an accepted new friend. Give them a few slow pats down their back (NOT THEIR HEAD) & then stop. Is the dog happy? Has it accepted your interaction? This will determine whether you can give it more pats.

🐶This is a more stress free option for dogs & a reason why in consultations we can develop a good level of trust, especially with fearful dogs & aggressive dogs, without a bunch of negative side effects from forced interactions.
