Mark your calendars for March 26th to meet Tripawds members Maggie and Gina live on Tripawd Talk Radio .

Tripawd Talk Radio

The Urban Three Legged Dog (Tripawds Member Profile: littlemanjake)

Date / Time: SUN 3/13/2011 @ 6:30 PM EST (4:30 MT, 3:30 PST)

Duration: 30 min

Call-in Number: (310) 388-9739



Meet three legged dog Isabelle's mom (Tripawds Member: littlemanjake). As residents of
Chicago, she will discuss what it's like getting around the big city with an urban three-legged Tripawd dog. We'll discuss things like:

  • getting around the busy city with a canine amputee
  • how to help your Tripawd walk on ice and snow
  • Isabelle's recovery and her experience with canine rehabilitation therapy and holistic canter dog treatments.

Littlemanjake's Mom is an Advanced Practice nurse who works in an ED/Trauma Center. She also has an extensive background with canine training, rehabilitation and therapy dog programs. She and Isabelle also volunteer with a center for people with physical & mental disabilities. She tells Tripawds that "Animals and what makes them work always came naturally to me, but when Isabelle, my once in a lifetime dog, arrived, she opened doors to learning I could not have imagined."

Post a reply with any questions, please keep them brief and to the point. Listen live online and stay tuned to this topic for the on demand audio podcast. Call (310) 388-9739 with your questions during the show or chat live during the show.
