I use the term responsible breeder a lot. now i am tending to use the term preservation breeder. what does that mean???!? that means someone who is breeding with the purpose of having their breed alive and well for (human) generations to come. they have a specific outline, the breed description. the build of the dog is directly related to the job they were meant to do, it takes a specific temperment to do every job so that is taken into account as well (please don't ever make me teach pre-school!!) i haven't listened to this podcast but i can't wait to!! i am especially intrigued to hear how her dogs did as well as what the feedback was from the other mushers!!!! if you have watched any of the iditarod race or follow anyone who competes in sled dog sports you will notice the racing dogs looks very different from the sled dogs you see in the confirmation ring, just like the setters bred for field trial look very different than the ones in the show ring.
Saturday’s are made for #k9fitclub and the #klimb
zeus is working on attention and rewards that the klimb is “his place.” a platform is more effective than a mat or telling the dog to sit and stay on the ground, because it keeps the dog from creeping out of his position.
the klimb takes advantage of dogs’ natural tendency to seek a higher vantage point. getting onto it requires focus and defines boundaries.
this helps dogs focus on their owners, ignoring distractions and being “good” — not begging for scraps or barking at visitors.

thank god for this stuff when one of the creatures is having tummy issues! 🙌🏼😅 @herbsmithinc formulated a new blend recently that aids in digestion and general tummy upset.
i originally got this to see if it would help alleviate gunther’s acid reflux tendencies, and i truly believe that by adding this supplement to his meals, we saw less burps and heard less gurgles!
once we moved back to ca, i fell off track with some of their supplements, and sure enough...back to square one! you guys might remember last week when i shared concerns via our stories about this strange cough+gag that gunther had going on. after processing some feedback from friends, followers, and our old vet who so kindly analyzed a video of it for me (shout out to #goldenoaksveterinaryhospital ♥️), i realized it was his acid reflux back at it again due to switching his food to something new. i immediately made two changes - switched him back to orijen, and started using gastrocare again. i kid you not, those symptoms went away in less than 24 hours! 😳🎉
i learned about herbsmith back in 2011 when i started my first pet industry job. i loved it then, and i freaking adore them now. i have never once tried a product from them that didn’t work wonders for us. every supplement has fixed an issue, and every delicious, meat-based treat has been devoured.
we. love. herbsmith. 😍💗
