Healing is a Pack Affair

Nick working with River on crate.
Thank you Carrie & Donna for the crate!
Nick Martinez has been working 24/7 for weeks with our boy Ke-ola. He has transformed a scared, abused, unsocialized, street dog into a balanced, well-behaved, confident pack member. Ke-ola is doing so well now that Nick even uses him to help other dogs in their healing process!

Thank you Donna Mason & Debbie Herber!
Nick has been working with Ke-ola and each human member of our pack individually and as a group. He has also made several home visits to help us prepare our other two dogs for Ke-ola's homecoming. He has been patient, focused and encouraging every step of the way. My family and I feel blessed to have Nick, Kiannah and his amazing rehab pack to help us.

These are some hardworking and beautifully balanced canines. Nice job Nick!

Today marks the first time that Ke-ola and his canine sisters have ever been together. It was a monumental day for all of us. We had been waiting for this day for almost two years. It is amazing what can happen with love, courage, determination and a willingness to grow and change. 

Nick and I walking my pack together for the first time ever.

Once we were done with treadmills, individual walks and our pack walk, Nick brought River and Ke-ola into the back yard and let them vibe each other out. It was very touching to see what a gentleman Ke-ola has become. He gave River her space and even calmly let her drink from the water bowl before he did. (Prior to Ke-ola's rehab the sound of a dog drinking from a water bowl would trigger anxiety and he would react poorly) This boy has found his center and his confidence.

Sky still needed more work before socializing freely with Ke-ola. We are on it and look forward to helping Sky find her center like her bother Ke-ola. 

Thank you for visiting. Wishing you and your pack Peace today and everyday.
