NIGEL, 4 months, wins Most Stinkin' Cute. He is so very sweet. He just returned from his #SummerLovin weekend and his hosts say he was such a good boy. He follows commands, plays well with other dogs, checks in with you constantly and LOVES people. If you are a happy, glass-half-full kind of human, Nigel is your spirit animal.
Through our #HealthyPets program, we support the @the.gaap’s work with vulnerable pets and owners from low-income and rural areas in southern Chile.
Vanessa is one of these owners. She lives in Pelchuquín, a rural community near Valdivia. She has 4 adult dogs and 2 cats living in her parcel and now, she’s adding little Nehuen to her family.
Nehuen (“Strong” in Mapudungún, the language spoken by native Mapuche people) is 2 months old and today he had his first check-up at the GAAP Clinic. Want to support initiatives like our Healthy Pets program? Join us at our #WildAtHeart gala on August 3rd and make a difference. Link in bio
Another rainy night :) her heel is much better in this vid than the last one lol. She did great on her night walk last night and calmly observed two different people walking by with umbrellas which was huge for us! So glad to see our new training plan is working!! Also today, I had the second private lesson out of four with some new clients and their dog- and human-reactive dog, and the progress they’ve made in just the past two weeks is PHENOMENAL!!! From at least one full blown barking reaction PER DAY, they are now at the point where they only had TWO reactive incidents (actual barking etc) during the entire two weeks I haven’t seen them!!! They have been fantastic students and worked hard with their dog, following instructions incredibly well and reading up on the information I gave them for homework. I am very proud, and very hopeful for my reactive clients in the future 😊 every day I get a tiiiiiny bit better as a trainer. Wish it would happen faster though!! #servicedogintraining#servicedog#sdit#psdit#tbi#rain#raincoat
