Tick-free Hike


I'm so excited to say that today has been our first ever tick-free hike. We took Lola & Brandan into federal park land near our house today for an hour long hike. We were walking through tall grass, thick brush & lots of woods to get to the lake where the dogs could swim and fetch sticks. I used a mixture of water, Eucalyptus Globulus,
Lavender and of course Purification. I've had luck in the past using oils as previously posted, but there's always one or two hitch hikers when we get home. Today...none...zero...ziltch. If anyone wants to order these oils...you can log on to Young Living and use my member # 935628. Oh...we were not bothered by all the flying insects either!

Dog Training Philosophy

My photo

I train dogs using positive reinforcement training to modify unwanted behaviors.  I step outside the traditional training box and use therapeutic-grade essential oils to assist in my behavior modification regime when it comes to dogs plagued with fear and anxiety as well as aggression.  My philosophy is to heal the dog's mind, body and spirit, not just to rid the dog of unacceptable behaviors.  I specialize in shelter dog rehab, reactive rover, and fearful fidos.
