I'm missing sunny #autumn days at @takingwingconsulting! What better way to enjoy the sun than training animals and getting calf massages from #goats?
The @healtohowl pets got new mats! Have an extra yoga mat laying around? Cut them according to your pet's size, and then they'll have a new mat, too! If you can't tell from our logo, we love trees, so we had to get this #yogamat from @inclinefit. We bet that @inclinefit didn't know their mats could make husbandry more efficient and enjoyable for pets! There's many benefits to having a non-slip mat that's easy to transport for your pets: 1. Dogs and cats feel much more comfortable when receiving husbandry and veterinary care when they're on a non-slip surface. 2. If you bring the mat with you and your pet to their veterinary and grooming appointments, the mat's scent and presence may serve as something familiar and calming. Bonus points if you spray the mat with @adaptildog or @feliwaycat! 3. With some training, your pet can tell you if they consent to their care using whether they stay on the mat or move off of it as a clear visual signal. Pets are much less fearful and stressed about husbandry and veterinary care when they feel they have a choice in the matter. (Note: many pets don't readily choose things like nail trims, but this can be changed with training and behavior modification!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Mats can be used for other fun training exercises! Does your pet have a mat? What activities do they use it for? We want to see! Tag us in your pictures and videos!
The Heal to Howl dogs enjoyed the clear day today!
Milo the #macaw, our friend at @takingwingconsulting, turned 1 yesterday! Happy birthday, Milo!
Does your dog love #fall as much as #AelaTheAdventureDog? Let's see! #zoomies #playwithyourdog
Izzy the #adoptabledog and I have been working on basic behaviors like sit, down and hand targeting. Izzy is about seven months old and is #availableforadoption through @savinggreatanimals. She is the perfect size and will probably be about 35 pounds as an adult. She genuinely loves cuddles and is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. She is also incredibly smart (stay tuned for a video of us training)! Izzy does have epilepsy, but she hasn't had any seizures since starting medication. Please share with anyone who might be interested in a loving pup who deserves a very special home! 💕🐾
Sandy is a @savinggreatanimals alum, and I had such a great time working with her and her family late this summer. Sandy was rescued from the streets of Mexico, so she is learning how to be a confident and well-mannered family dog in her new home. She is so sweet!
We hope those of you in the #PNW have been enjoying these beautiful #autumn days!
I had the pleasure of working with Pippin a few weeks ago. She is a smart and sweet #miniaussie who is learning to feel comfortable in water, like the doggie pool at Pawz-n-Play. Her dedicated guardian has done such a wonderful job raising a lovely dog!
I had so much fun training Wilson to do a down/stay, and I think he had fun, too!
