Visitors to Santa Fe are still MISSING their Black Lab from Sage Inn!

A family visited Santa Fe, New Mexico last week and stayed at the Sage Inn. They left their dog in the hotel room and she somehow opened the door and got out, probably around 9 pm on June 17th. She does not have a collar or leash on her. She is also very friendly and probably just very scared without them. She is a…

Lost kitty

Hi, the shelter says to post here also. I haven't been on here in some time. However, my very much loved girl, Jasmine, got out of the house some time last night to early this morning. She's a silver tabby with green eyes, no collar, but is chipped, Smits is my vet. She's wary and skittish around strangers. Lean built, long body. Not sure I will be able to post her pic here using my iPad.

She went missing in the Fairway Village neighborhood off of the lower end of Agua Fria. I'm hoping… Continue

Chablis: Second Test

I am not one of those dogs who like to put their head out of the car window - but I will for a camera! My second test was outdoors. First I had to SIT while waiting to cross the street.Then JUMP-ON a big stone in front of a bank, continue to the Plaza and go UNDER a bench. Next we headed back to the bank where I did a PUSH on the handicap button outside the door, went to a table and did a STAY. Judith backed 20 feet from the table and said COME and GET YOUR LEASH. I did both at the same…

Chablis: correction

Judith told you in the "First Test" blog that "Ah" is a command that makes me stop and think about what I doing wrong. It's when she says Ah-Ah that I really stop and think!!

Dog abused in Espanola - if you are appalled, contact the RA sheriff

This is a very sad case of animal abuse and there may never be justice for this dog.

A dog was shot in January and his hind legs were paralyzed.  He dragged and chewed off his legs over 4 months, until finally someone brought the dog to the Espanola Animal Shelter.

Public outcry over the guys who killed a dog with a chainsaw in front of children outside of Farmington helped to push the prosecuters to pursue the case.…

Chablis: First Test

The first day of testing took place at the Assistance Dogs of the West office. We had to do our commands: "stand","sit", "stay", "come", "up", "down", "left", "right", "turn", "back", "settle" (that means to calm down), "off", "let's go", "get it", "give it", "fix it" (if the leash gets caught under my leg), ), "under" (I always try to go under the table in a restaurant - my tail usually won't come), "tap" (the handicap button), "car" ( jump into the car)...and many more, but you get the…

Come Join the Fun & Help Us Save More Labs at Luvin' Labs 3rd Annual

Thanks, Ben, I'd be happy to elaborate.

We started the workshop with a brief introduction to the method followed by an explanation of the Tellington Ttouches and ground exercises and their uses. I followed that with an explanation of the equipment we use and why TTouch is a training method and my role using it. 

I teach private clients, but I also work with trainers to support them with their clients. I don't teach group classes so I'm not in competition with other trainers but here as support. I…

Chablis:Placement Class #5 - the last one

Today we did "retrieve" from a cement floor. I picked-up a cell phone, sock, spoon, a big handbag and a plastic credit card. Even humans have trouble doing that. The card slides around and I chase it with my paws. I can't exactly explain it, but there seems to be a little space and I get the card with my teeth. Judith says it's a doggy miracle! Next the occupational therapist came and told us (Judith listened, not me) about our "Public Access" tests. Melissa also talked about relaxation and…

Saturday Workshop/Clinic

We gave a workshop/clinic this past Saturday at TecaTu in Sanbusco Market. A lovely woman, Barbara, came with a book she wrote 20 years ago in which she mentioned Linda Tellington-Jones and her Animal Ambassadors program. What fun! Anyway, it was a great clinic and thanks go to TecaTu and Sanbusco for a fabulous afternoon.

Pepper's Posse on Facebook

Hi everyone!

Steve and Yvette Dobbie - those tireless Pepper chasers - have left the state for a bit but they are still working to find Pepper. They've even created a Facebook page:

It's a great place to post your thoughts about Pepper, ideas for catching him and sightings. Scoop would be great too, but it's not as well-known as…
