Please view the photos in the link to the article provided in the media room at

Here are the pictures from The New York Times article on Doga. I'm trying to ignore that the wide angle lens the photographer used kinda squishes my already small stature and makes my bicep look as meaty as a honey-baked ham. Vanity aside, the photographer did an amazing job capturing the sweet expressions of the yogis and dogis attending this class.
I generally don't read a lot of commentary from articles written about doga and me...and the negative comments I do come across don't really bother me, like I told my husband, my youth prepared me to be a controversial adult. Not that I had a bad childhood or anything, but I've never been afraid to move forward with a new idea and often times new ideas freak people out and make them afraid. That's o.k. that's their thing.
Anyway, I felt bad for the poor teacher mentioned in the article who taught with treats and a stuffed animal. If you're out there struggling doga me! I never allow treats during class and the dogs always get playtime before and after the class to run around socialize and sniff butt. This also gives me the opportunity to notice and keep an eye on any aggressive or dominant personalities so I can nip any problems in the bud. Anyway the article was really nice and it was terrific to be included. They also included one of my teacher trainees from Chicago Kristyn Caliendo, she attended my teacher training seminar last fall in San Fran.
Well I didn't quite get to the tip of the week today...maybe tomorrow.
Don't forget tomorrows class at The Seattle Humane Society, 9:00 am! As always, a very generous portion of the class proceeds goes toward the ongoing efforts of The Seattle Humane Society.
