Sit Really Does Mean SIT

Over the past two years I’ve had the privilege of getting to know a remarkable young woman by the name of Bre Altherr. She and her husband Chris, own and operate the North Indy Sit Means Sit franchise. When they say sit really does mean sit – it really does mean that!

While their facility is focused on training, they also have a store, grooming, boarding and nutrition consulting available – yes they are raw feeding advocates and in fact do prey model raw with their own dogs! Bre also happens to be one of our students at the American Council of Animal Naturopathy studying to be a Carnivore Nutrition Consultant – which is how I got to know her. You know some people you just hit it off with right away? Well that’s how it was with us 🙂 Continue reading Sit Really Does Mean SIT

Running Wolf

Schatzie_in_the_fields_morning_walk6I know I’ve been sharing a lot of stories of my outings with Schatzie (aka Running Wolf) lately but since King is on the injured reserve list right now (but improving DAILY I might add – so exciting to watch it all happen naturally), I am enjoying sharing my adventures with this amazing dog. It is a testament to the laws of nature and the naturopathic approach to caring for our dogs. Continue reading Running Wolf

Thinking Differently About Using EOs with Dogs

My two chunky monkeys after their daily meal
Often I get asked how much of this or that essential oil to use with a dog and how often. I am happy to say that isn’t a question I answer in the conventional sense because that is a conventional focus. As a matter of fact, that is considered prescribing and treating which only licensed practitioners are allowed to do – and I am fine with that. The reason? Because as an animal naturopath, I have a completely different way of thinking about how to use essential oils with dogs.

In fact, we think differently about how to use the oils with animals in general…and in fact how to support them as a whole – whether they are ailing or not – differently. Continue reading Thinking Differently About Using EOs with Dogs
