“I look at buying raw food for some of the dogs in rescue the same way I look at having to buy medication or taking them to the vet”  Hillary Rosen, the founder of A Purposeful Rescue in Los Angeles, is the wave of the future when it comes to dog rescue. Hillary rescues some of the neediest dogs I’ve seen, and I’ve been working in rescue for a long time. She primarily focuses on senior and medical needs dogs. Anything from autoimmune issues to severe malnourishment – she has some amazing before and after photos of the dog’s she’s saved. What makes her different, and amazing might I add, is that she approaches veterinary care for the dogs by using food as medicine.  The world of shelter medicine is a much different type of medicine than a holistic approach. Shelter medicine includes overvaccination, early spay/neuter, poor diet, extremely stressful conditions, minimal supportive care, etc… and I don’t fault rescues at all. Cost is a major factor when you’re a non-profit organization and saving as many lives as you can is the goal. However, when an advocate like Hillary comes around who works tirelessly to approach the whole dog despite the uphill battle of rescue bill costs, this is something to be shared because it can be done!  This episode will give you insight into A Purposeful Rescue and how Hillary rescues dogs giving them support with raw diets, alternative holistic care – and more!

We all know how amazing it feels to get a massage or visit the chiropractor, well, the same goes for our dogs! The benefits of getting your dog a massage or bodywork treatment are many and can help with arthritis, post-surgery strengthening, regaining range of motion and so much more. In this episode, I talk to Dr. Barbara who I studied under to receive my Canine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapy Certification. We discuss her journey to study chiropractic and massage with animals and how she is now teaching others. We also discuss the many benefits your dog (or horse or cat) can receive from these alternative techniques!

As a certified Animal Aromatherapist, I am dedicated to using essential oils safely with animals. Some would be shocked to know that is actually unpopular with a lot of the mainstream essential oil users. I approach using essential oils with animals from a place of helping as many animals as possible through the use of aromatherapy, and that means doing so safely and effectively. If you aren’t being safe about dilution, avoiding internal use, and other factors I discuss in this podcast episode, then you might not be getting effective results and ultimately causing more damage than good.  For reference, dogs have highly sensitive systems and we have to respect that! Dogs have 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses whereas humans only have about six million. The area of a dog’s brain that analyzes smells is also about 40 times greater than ours. Using essential oils safely around dogs (and all other animals) should be utilized not only as a measure of caution but respect to our animals. Learn more about this topic in this solo podcast episode!

Part two of episode six covers many topics that might help pet parents connect more with their dogs from a heart-centered place. We discuss cellular memory and how it impacts our dog’s lives. The theory of cellular memory states that memories and personality traits are not only stored in the brain but also potentially in organs such as the heart. This impact of cellular memory is how Caroline (and myself) approach dog behavior. As referenced in the podcast episode, cellular memory is something the Institute of HeartMath has studied and been able to measure. Learn more about this fascinating, transformative and healing work in this part two episode!

“We take on our dog and vice versa” In this episode, I talk to the Spiritual Dog Trainer, Caroline Griffith, about the energy and hearts of our dogs. The biggest takeaway I’ve had working with Caroline and attending her USA Canine Flow retreat was how much my dogs truly have picked up on my anxieties, constant mode of thinking I need to do something, and more. I share what I found out about myself because of Izzy at the retreat.  Also mentioned is this surprising fact. Did you know the animal with the largest heart-to-body-mass ratio is the dog? There is so much to explore about our dog’s hearts and emotions and how our dogs are directly affected by our emotions. Learn more about this in part one of this episode. Part two will be released next week!
