There is much history of the American Indian dog pulling Travois, and helping the tribe to move their belongings from camp to camp. Although the equipment has changed over the years, the modern American Indian Dog still helps his family by carrying a share of the weight. Left is little Peyote Stone Dreamer wearing her packs while hiking in Arizona with owners James and Mercy.
Below is one of our dogs hiking in the Grand Canyon. You will often see them stopping to smell the flowers.
"Trail riding dog Abby (Obsidian), loves riding right up there on the saddle when I let her, as small as she
is she can run right up my leg to sit up with me" ~Kim La Flamme
Abby, now retired, is riding the trails with owner, Eileen Vollertson, and their favorite horse Classic, in Crooked River, Oregon

Notice the petroglyphs behind AIDog Miley
Mr. La Flamme,
We just wanted to let you know that our puppy is doing great. Miley is truly a blessing to our family. She loves to go with us everywhere, is very intelligent and adapts quickly to everything we do. Everyone who meets her, thinks she's great. We couldn't be happier than the choice we made to get a pup from you. I've attached a few pictures of a hiking trip we took last weekend so you can see what she has become. She has done so much with us....hiked in the snow (she loves the snow), went with us when we go ice climbing, hiked up the side of the canyons, been inside a cave, back and forth through the creek, and with us to work almost every work day. Her obedience training is coming along nicely as well. At almost 5 months old, she does better than most of the mature dogs we know owned by family and friends.
We will take some more pictures of her for the registration papers and get them to you within a month.
Thank you again.
