Ami Moore, The Memphis Dog Coach, Offers Tips To Avoid Vacation Guilt For Dog Owners

Moore believes the key to avoiding vacation guilt for owners and stress for pets lies in understanding our pets and in the attitude of the owner who is forced to leave pets behind

[ Chicago IL – September 16, 2014 ] Ami Moore, a Chicago dog training expert widely known as ‘The Memphis Dog Coach’, was quoted in the Boston Globe recently in an article entitled, ‘Leave room in your carry-on for pet guilt’. The article covered the concept of ‘pet guilt’, which strikes owners who go on vacation and are forced to leave a family member behind. This can inflict emotional trauma on the pet and can be a source of real stress for both owner and pet. In the article she offered practical and real world advice for pet owners.

“Dogs don’t recognize us as humans, or dogs, or alpacas, or anything else,” Moore stated. “They see us as an energy field. The trick is how you leave them when you go on vacation. If you leave with happy energy, then you’re giving them happy energy. If you leave them with negative energy like ‘I’m worried,’ ‘I’m afraid,’ ‘I’m guilty,’ then the dog will act the same way.”

“The dog is very easy to change because dogs are natural followers. Nature likes balance and strength. Humans like drama trauma cases. People like Lindsey Lohan and Kim and Kanye. Nature doesn’t. Nature runs away from that or kills it.”

The Memphis Dog Coach, Ami Moore, CMT, CMVT is a leading expert in dog psychology. Her much acclaimed book, ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ was part of the curriculum at the Vancouver Island College Of Natural Wellness.

After attending three dog training schools Ami Moore started dog training in Chicago. She was awarded the Chicagoland Tails award for best dog trainer and has been honored by various charities for her work with rehabilitating aggressive dogs. Ms. Moore also created the famous Guerrilla Group Obedience classes, and the ‘Fido Fat Camp’ concept so that loving pet owners could holistically increase their dog’s health and wellness with exercise, natural food and psychological rehabilitation techniques. Ami Moore offered one of the first Chicago dog yoga or Doga classes in the city of Chicago.

She developed a three-tiered dog training and dog behavior management system based upon Alphatude, Amiability and Activity to balance the mind and body of the Chicago urban dog and dog owner which is explained in detail in her book. ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ is available on her website at www.memphispuppytraining.com.

Ami Moore, The Memphis Dog Coach, Strongly Urges Dog and Cat Owners to Avoid Licensing Their Pets In The United States

Moore, one of the nation’s top dog training experts believes it is urgent to discuss the topic of dog and cat licensing in America. Many dogs in the US go unlicensed. Ami Moore questions if that can create serious problems for both dogs and dog owners

[ Chicago IL – October 9, 2014 ] A recent article on the KCRW website in Los Angeles addressed the problem of unlicensed dogs in the LA area. The professed benefits of licensing pet dogs and cats are to provide the means to reunite owners with lost pets, help curb disease and reduce stray pet populations. Ami Moore, a Chicago dog training expert widely known as ‘The Memphis Dog Coach’, believes this issue may be looked at in another way.

“I believe that mandatory licensing of dogs is an unfair tax on dog lovers. I do not believe that the government has the right to make you pay a tax for owning a dog or cat. Another occurrence that I see is that cities will make you pay an increased fee if your dog or cat is intact, yet current research shows that dogs that are left intact, the way Nature intended, live longer, are healthier and have greater resistance against cancer and glandular diseases,” says Ami the Memphis Dog Coach. “I think the government needs to stay out of my pocketbook and out of my dogs panties.”

“I am also against penalties for vets if the don’t release the names of dog owners and their dogs to governments. I believe that what happens between a vet and a dog owner is private and the medical professional cannot and should not be compelled to give lists of client’s names to the government.”

“I am sick of the current ‘Nanny-State’ mindset of our country where every act of personal freedom and pleasure is controlled and taxed. If people want to donate to shelter and rescues, then let them do that instead of paying a tax on their pet. I have not seen any evidence that licensing contributes in better health or welfare of either owned dogs or dogs in pounds or shelters.”

Pet Guilt-Boston Globe Interview

Pet Guilt-Boston Globe

 

Leave room in your carry-on for pet guilt

By Christopher Muther | GLOBE STAFF AUGUST 30, 2014IMG_4583CHRISTOPHER MUTHER/GLOBE STAFF

Admiral Jules Vern von Picklebottoms III

When I scooped up the orange bundle of fur, the purring intensified and I felt relieved that my cat seemed to forgive me for deserting him for nearly two weeks. But as the purring continued and he looked at me sweetly, a little too sweetly, I began to wonder if this was his passive-aggressive way of making me feel guilty for going on vacation.

“Was it really necessary for you to be gone that long?” I imagined him asking as I stroked his big belly. “Were you too busy packing your skimpy swim trunks to remember to add fresh catnip to my scratching pad? You couldn’t be bothered to Skype with me?”
The truth is, I did think about the cat when I was on vacation. At times the guilt was terrible. While my cat, Admiral Jules Vern von Picklebottoms III, may seem like a tough 20-pound bruiser, he’s really just a big snuggle muffin. A sitter visited him daily, but I was worried that the Admiral would miss his morning cuddle time.

Many people consider their animals to be part of their family, and it can be difficult to have a good time frolicking at the beach when you think that a member of the family — sometimes your favorite member — is stuck at home moping around.

“I’m experiencing plenty of guilt,” veterinarian Llana Reisner told me as she vacationed on the Cape earlier this summer. She left behind three dogs, four birds, and a cat. “But I don’t think guilt is going to help either ourselves or our pets. What can help is planning well in advance so that the best arrangements can be made.”

It’s one thing for a human to feel guilty, but I’ve always wondered what my animals were thinking when I jetted off. It’s bad enough that my cat has to put up with me singing along to Dusty Springfield. Was I inflicting further emotional trauma by going on vacation?

“It depends on how we approach going away,” said Jackson Galaxy , a cat behaviorist on Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell.” “I know a lot of people who leave a big bowl of food for the weekend and say ‘See you later.’ So yeah, that’s traumatic. There comes a moment when we really have to start considering that animals have the same emotional reality that we do. They feel things the way that we do.” Galaxy explained that if your animal wakes up one morning, its owner gone, and sees nothing but a bowl of food, there are going to be problems. That’s shorthand for watch where you step when you get home because there may be an unwanted gift waiting for you on your favorite carpet.

‘Pets do notice and get upset when the owners are gone for long periods of time. . . . They’ll act out to express their emotions. They mope around, they won’t eat. ’

And, as I learned from Kai Hsieh, owner of Happy Paws Pet Care in Boston, my absence most likely agitated the cat.

“Pets do notice and get upset when the owners are gone for long periods of time,” she said. “I’m talking more than two weeks. They’ll act out to express their emotions. They mope around, they won’t eat. I can go on and on.”

Chicago-based dog behaviorist and trainer Ami Moore said she regularly encounters vacation guilt among her clients.

“Dogs don’t recognize us as humans, or dogs, or alpacas, or anything else,” she said. “They see us as an energy field. The trick is how you leave them when you go on vacation. If you leave with happy energy, then you’re giving them happy energy. If you leave them with negative energy like ‘I’m worried,’ ‘I’m afraid,’ ‘I’m guilty,’ then the dog will act the same way.”

Her recommendation is that you clear your mind and say, ‘I’m happy that I’m going.” Keep the tone upbeat and the dog will respond in kind. She said most dogs suffer from separation anxiety as a result of their owner’s anxious behavior.

“I can take care of most cases in one two-hour visit. That’s why I make $500,000 a year solving dog problems,” she said. “The dog is very easy to change because dogs are natural followers. Nature likes balance and strength. Humans like drama trauma cases. They like Lindsey Lohan and Kim and Kanye. Nature doesn’t. Nature runs away from that or kills it.”

Our experts say that the best way to eliminate the guilt — or at least some of the guilt — is to start planning long before you go on vacation. In the past, I planned by trying to con friends into taking care of the cat while I was away. But eventually they got wise and realized that the effort involved in feeding an obese feline twice a day was not worth the T-shirts that I brought them in return. I was fortunate enough to find Happy Paws. Hsieh kindly e-mailed me pictures of the Admiral while I was away so I knew he was doing well. As a bonus, I’m not annoying my friends.

If you hire a pet-sitter, Galaxy said you should have that sitter visit a few times before your departure so the cat feels more at ease with the stranger. He said he often hears from pet-sitters who say they don’t see the cat for the first three days.

“There’s tons of homework, because you’re not going to relax on vacation unless you can predict what’s happening at home is 100 percent perfect,” said Terri Bright, director of behavioral services at MSPCA/Angell Animal Medical Center. “It’s like leaving your child somewhere. You should know what time they eat, what time they go to bed, and what time they exercise. That’s the metaphor.”

Ideally cats should stay at home with a sitter that stops by at least twice a day, said cat behaviorist Marilyn Krieger. She said cats are not the arrogant, apathetic loners that many make them out to be. They bond with people and miss them when they’re gone. They miss them so much that Krieger suggests an elaborate system to keep them happy while owners are sunning themselves on a far-flung beach.

“You take eight things that have your scent on it,” she explained. “Maybe it’s eight T-shirts that are heavily scented. And you get eight plastic bags that can be sealed, In each one you put a separate item. Every day, your cat-sitter should take one of these items out of plastic. That way your cat won’t feel abandoned. Cats are very scent-oriented.”

To be honest I was biting my lip to keep from laughing as Krieger explained this to me. But Bright also recommended leaving scents around the house for both dogs and cats.

While most cats don’t mind a little alone time, dog trainer Jonathan Klein said many dogs have a difficult time with separation anxiety caused by owners who over-bond. He suggests teaching the dog to be alone. After that, research your canine boarding options and check credentials. Then bring the dog a few times before you go on vacation to make sure the dog is comfortable in its new surroundings. Also, don’t be shy about making an unannounced visit to ensure that the facility is well run. Short of that, make sure you have good references.

Animals like rituals and patterns, so when Westwood-based luxury travel expert Tiffany Dowd leaves for work, she makes sure her rescued Maine coon cat, Onyx, has everything he likes, including a fresh pair of Crocs to chew on (his favorite hobby). She also reassures him by rubbing his belly.

“I always feel guilty leaving Onyx,” said Dowd, president of Luxe Social Media. “He likes to sprawl himself out next to my suitcase when I pack as if to say he knows I’m leaving.”

Hotels have gotten wise to the trend by offering more pet-friendly options for dog owners. But when the pets have to stay at home, it’s an adjustment for all involved.

“I’m pretty sure some people would rather leave their kids behind than their pets,” Klein said. “Being away from our pets is usually tougher for us than it is for them.”

Alphatude Attitude’ now part of curriculum at Vancouver Island College of Natural Wellness

The Memphis Dog Coach Ami Moore’s groundbreaking book, ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ will now be used as part of the curriculum at Vancouver Island College of Natural Wellness. The program educates students about the importance of proper animal nutirtion and holistic health, including proper animal food preparation.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Memphis Dog Coach Ami Moore’s ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ To Be Used As Part Of Curriculum at Vancouver Island College Of Natural Wellness

The program educates students about the importance of proper animal nutrition and holistic health including proper animal food preparation 


[August 9, 2011 Chicago IL] The Memphis Dog Coach, Ami Moore, CMT, CMVT is a a leading expert in dog psychology. Her much acclaimed book, ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ has been made a part of the curriculum at the Vancouver Island College Of Natural Wellness. The program will educate students about the importance of proper animal nutrition and holistic health including proper animal food preparation, alternative healing methods for animals and many other subjects. The program is divided into 16 comprehensive lessons, covering every aspect of holistic nutrition and preparation for animals. Students in the program will gain hands-on experience by completing 5 animal specific cuisine creations.

“I so very honored,” stated Ms. Moore, “that ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ was selected as part of the curriculum for the canine holistic health class of VICNW. Canine health and wellness is one of my top priories as a Chicago dog trainer and dog expert. Most dog behavior problems stem from physical or mental imbalances, so providing solid advice in proper nutrition, alternative healing methods and natural, holistic techniques to create equilibrium in both the dog and owner are part of my unique style. These methods work very well on rescue and shelter dogs that suffer from severe behavior problems such as aggressive behavior, barking and fearful, nervous anxiety attacks.”

Vancouver Island College Of Natural Wellness strives to deliver eco-friendly Holistic Health Education. VICNW offers the Weight Management Coach Practitioner, Anti Aging Coach Practitioner, Holistic Nutritional Consultant, Master Herbalist, Holistic Health Practitioner, Homeopath, and Holistic Chef for Animals home study programs in downloadable formats. Their programs empower students to make a significant contributions to positive change.

“When I first began writing the ‘The Alphatude Attitude’,” continued Ms. Moore, “I wanted to make dog owners aware of the impact that their emotions have on their relationship with their dog. The public’s  reception of my book has been overwhelming, as it seems that there is a serious lack of awareness of the energy link between dog and man.  VICNW has honored me by adding my book to their curriculum so that their students are introduced to my concept of ‘mind to mind’ training.  I have always told my clients that ‘dogs are just like toddlers with superhuman powers.’ Toddlers with superhuman powers need the perfect balance of affection and authority which equals Alphatude (the act of gentle leadership) to keep themselves and the world safe.

After attending three dog training schools Ami Moore started dog training in Chicago. She was awarded the Chicagoland Tails award for best dog trainer and has been honored by various charities for her work with rehabilitating aggressive dogs. Ms. Moore also created the famous Guerrilla Group Obedience classes, and the ‘Fido Fat Camp’ concept so that loving pet owners could holistically increase their dog’s health and wellness with exercise, natural food and psychological rehabilitation techniques.

Update: It’s Time For Real Solutions On  Dog Bite Prevention For Children

Dog Bites  More Lethal Than Swine Flu

Ami Moore, The Expert Dog Training Expert provides an insiders look on dog bite prevention at the 12th  Annual YMCA Healthy Kids Day.  In urban areas, like Chicago  children are facing an epidemic of dog bites. The culprit? The family dog!

(Chicago, IL)—You needn’t look far for information on dog bite prevention for babies and children.  The question  Ami Moore, the Memphis Dog Coach asks is this: are you really getting the full story on aggressive dogs? If the mainstream media provides any clues, the answer is no!

Ami Moore, the Chicago Dog Expert,  a leading expert in dog training, aggressive dog rehabilitation and dog obedience training revealed, “It’s time we separate fact from fiction, and myths from truths. The real story here is that bad owners create biting dogs. The best way to stop children from suffering from dog bites is to hold the dog owner responsible for the actions of their dog.”

As a member of NICE, The National Institute of Canine Experts, Ami Moore provides dog bite prevention programs to community groups, social groups, business groups, schools and churches free of charge. “It is my duty as a citizen of Chicago to do my part in ensuring that our city is safe for children.” Ami continues, “Dog bites to children have reached epidemic proportions due to owner ignorance, laziness and irresponsibility.  Teaching children how to protect themselves from dog bites  with a fun and informative program Bite Prevention Program is my way of giving back to the community.”

Attendance as the 12th Annual Healthy Kids Day exceed expectations. The children and parents were delighted to interact with Ami Moore, the Memphis Dog Coach.  As a American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizenship Evaluator, Ami Moore distributed coloring books, activity books and other prizes that were provided by the AKC.

Ami said, “ The one thing that distressed me the most at the health fair is that most of the children and about half of the parents have already had a negative experience with a dog. My heart breaks for the unnecessary trauma that these people had suffered. Education would have prevented all of this.”

Ami Moore, called by some the chicago dog whisperer, operates a boutique dog training company that services Chicago and all of America. Ami Moore uses her experience as a teacher, occupational therapist and coach to provide solutions for all of her dog related problems. Ami Moore is the author of “Alphatude Attitude” and is a trusted authority on dog aggression, dog bites and rehabilitator of aggressive dogs. Ami Moore has assisted the Illinois animal control officers, dog bite lawyers and concerned dog owners in rehabilitating dangerous dogs and is able to provide expert witness testimony in dog bite litigation.   Ami Moore can be reached at www.memphispuppytraining.com or at 847-284-7760.
