Happy Dogs. Happy Owners. Mind to Mind.
Mount Zion Bright Like Moonlight
New breed, new boy, new adventures! My first Poodle! Seal’s a café au lait phantom particolour Standard Poodle. He’s a washed-out Service Dog candidate, so he knows some stuff that’s true, and thinks he knows some stuff that isn’t true. Communication is happening.
Seal’s breeder is Camille Torkornoo of Mount Zion kennel in Eugene, Oregon. His dad is Antigua Escape to Mount Zion, dam is Mount Moriah By The Timberline TKN.
Firezone Firefly at Dragonair
Serra is a Giant Schnauzer. I’m so excited (and exhausted) to be sharing my life with a Giant again. I knew I missed them but I didn’t realize how much until I could once again reach out my hand and find a huge brick-shaped head and a coat harsh enough to clean your boots.

Turnabout Scuba at Dragonair

Scuba. What an amazing person she was. She introduced me to the wonders of force-free training and the amazing communication that is possible using a clicker. Literally changed the direction of my life.
So many amazing things she told me, fascinating questions she asked me, facts beyond my imagination she explained to me. I was afraid of the day when I would lose her, but terrified that I would never have another dog whose brain came close to hers.
Was it all her? Or all the training? Turns out it was both, thank goodness! I thank her every day for the insights she gave me into the minds and lives of all the dogs who have followed her.
