Where did the name Lewis and Clark Canine Coaching originate?
Jamie Eaton, the owner of Lewis and Clark Canine Coaching, wanted to pay homage to both the Kansas City area and Jamie’s beloved Newfoundland dog, Uka. Thus, Lewis and Clark Canine Coaching was born!
In 1803, Meriwether Lewis purchased a Newfoundland named Seaman prior to the start of the famed Lewis and Clark expedition. According to Lewis’s journals, Seaman is often praised for his “sagacity.” He is the only animal to have made the entire journey from beginning to end. Preserved in a museum, the inscription on Seaman’s collar reads, “The greatest traveller of my species. My name is SEAMAN, the dog of captain Meriwether Lewis, whom I accompanied to the Pacific ocean through the interior of the continent of North America.”
