- 23.10.2023On forever homes for sled dogs and why putting on hold our re-homing activity
A topic that I have been pondering for quite a while, and that I wanted to cover if I only could find the right words. Talking about a sensitive subject, that can stir up controversial issues, is always delicate. But let’s be fair, keeping my mouth shut would certainly be the only way to go about it if I really want to play it safe. However, being a people-pleaser or keeping a low profile has never make anything change. I believe that people who follow us and our activities as The Striders Adventures, as well as the public in general, deserve to be informed and get the full picture.
We got involved in finding new homes for sled dogs, both old and young, during the Covid pandemic. It has meaning then. Many kennels were going through a difficult time, and so many dogs had to find new homes. But now, as I write this, it’s an entire new story.
Before I get ahead, I want to stress that my intent is not to point the finger at anyone or to tell the good from the bad. I am casting a light on a long-existing situation and questioning my position, and the role played by our Association.seld dogs, retirement plan, re-homing, sled dog industry, charity, animal welfare, non-proft

What makes us who we are? What is our persona? What is our true Identity? What about self-love?
How to experience true Unconditional love for ourselves and others? What if we CAN’T stand the identity or persona that we are incarnating?
Over the past year, I took a deep dive into these concepts that were so foreign and a big question mark for me.

How it is helping us with our pack of 11 adopted huskies
I got interested in the Trust Technique last winter. The work we had been doing for one year with our adopted sled dogs was paying off. They had already changed so much. Yet, some of them were showing remains of some more serious traumas and fears, as well as some deep rooted conditioning.
I found the tool that was complementing perfectly my approach to animals. ®trust technique, animal communication, outdoor witch, dog, husky, trauma, healing, solving problems

6 things to know and do with your dog(s)!
Today a short post that I wrote from observing some people and their animals, especially with their dogs.

Our animals, mirrors of beliefs system & personal issues
Our animals don’t come by chance in our lives.
They enter our lives to help us learn, grow and/or heal something. And we help them the same way in return. Have you ever noticed how animals and their person often look alike, in character traits, even physically? Sometimes it is quite challenging, and some relationships with a pet or animal friend can take us out of our comfort zone before becoming smooth sailing.

- 01.09.2021Quint, or Fear of Thunder & Eye Infection ...gone!
Here's the story of Quint, a Siberian-Alaskan husky born in 2015, and former sled dog re-homed due to epilepsy episodes and high stress when running.
I adopted him in November 2020, 6 months after adopting his brother Bobby. He was suffering from separation anxiety and hated being fenced and left alone. He was also extremely scared of thunder and shooting sounds, to the point of destroying everything around him. Also he had an eye infection since the trip back from Finland to Switzerland that wasn’t healing.
I started working with him with animal communication and energy healing sessions on his fears and specific issues. The results were ok, but not consistent. So I decided to work on his entire history. It changed everything! >>Read the whole story>>animal communication, energy healing, fear of thunder, fear of fireworks, trauma, rehomed dog, infection, surrogate tapping

A life-changing experience at Bear Hill Husky
Update and feedback on my 5 months of volunteering at Bear Hill Husky - one of my dearest and richest life experiences so far:

**** Sensitive Topic ****
What about huskies in time of Covid?So you’ve all seen me post pictures of my life here in this amazing country with these beautiful, lovely dogs and dream landscape.Indeed, Finland, and for me especially Lapland, is a paradise on Earth. I feel so good and uplifted here, in nature, spending days outside, with the dogs.
Yet the current reality is way darker. Husky kennels, and especially the dogs, are the first to pay the costs from the absence of tourism.
