My entire life I have always loved animals and would rescue any dog or cat I could. I would get in trouble as a child because I would bring home stray dogs and cats. As I got older I started researching dog rescues and my dream was always to have my rescue with a shelter on our property. I started volunteering for 2 Hearts Animal Haven and one of the biggest challenges I saw was lack of dog training experience.
Dogs that are abandoned generally have behavior issues and the rescue volunteers aren't equipped with the experience needed to help the dog overcome their issues. I began to study dog psychology not dog training. I have studied under some of the most recognized canine psychologists. Why did I take this route...I felt that I needed to understand what a dog's behavior means in deeper theory to better understand what their behavior is saying. I find this approach much more helpful with rehabilitating dogs.
I do free training of all of 2 Hearts Animal Havens fosters, adopters, and staff members with the goal of saving more dogs. My dream is to help owners and dogs live peacefully together before an owner feels the need to abandon their dog.
He's my oldest and when we are on the trail urban mushing I can always count on him to lead. He is a medium energy husky and my right hand with the rest of my pack. He always watches over the pack in a calm very assertive way.
She is only three months younger than Meeko and they grew up together. She is NOT my lead musher but she is my fastest dog. I learned the hard way two years ago with a bad crash when she was leading with Meeko. She is so sweet but also my escape artist.
I call him my broken husky because he is the calmest gentlest husky I have ever met. He is my right hand dog training helper. He has played a huge part in the progress of Willow and River.
These two came to us October of 2018. They were part of a rescue effort of 176 wolf dogs. We adopted them sight unseen. These two were were 4.5 months old when the got her and had never had a positive experience with a human. They have made huge progress the last several months and is you want to learn more follow are blog Raising Huskies and Wolf Dogs.
