Kali is a former street dog whose path crossed mine at Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal in summer 2011. Since February 2012 she lives in Switzerland and spends most of her time eating, sleeping and exploring the forests. We only work with positive training and build our bond on mutual trust and understanding.
Kali eats a raw diet as I think that’s the most natural food for her and it’s also the food she tolerates best. Her diet mainly consists of meat, bones, organs and whole prey. We do a lot of dummy training, mostly with Kali’s favorite rabbit fur dummy. In winter we train for avalanche SAR and in summer for wilderness SAR. We’re not training for real deployments, merely for fun, to work as a team, strengthen our relationship and to give Kali a chance to use her nose according to her natural instincts.

  1. Momo – Bronwyn Llewellyn sent me the link to Kali’s story a few months ago. My husband and I have a blog about street dogs (I have my own pup from the streets of Kinshasa, DRC), and I’d love to share Kali’s story. If you have time, I could send you a few questions about her (beyond what you’ve already posted in your blog) and highlight her as one of Labi’s friends (Labi is my street dog). The blog is at streetdogstory.com, and our email is streetdogstory@gmail.com. Hope to hear from you soon. All the best, Tracy Whittington
