When I started playing around with putting my thoughts down on the Internet, I merely saw it as an online journal of sorts. I’m just a dog trainer after all, who would really want to read what I had to write? I have struggles and successes (thus the Blue Ribbons and NQs title!), but people don’t often see the struggles.
I’ve been training and showing dogs for less than ten years…a newbie as far as some trainers are concerned. I am not out to conquer the universe, but I like to do well in my chosen sport. I’m a little OCD and more than a little anal about certain things, all of which correspond fairly well with competition obedience. 🙂
I love to share what I have learned and I don’t think people should have to pay to see my videos or read what I have to say. I don’t consider myself an expert, but I do think I am pretty good at what I do.
All dogs are different and there is not a “one size fits all” approach. I do not like categories and prefer to let my training speak for itself. Watch me train. Watch my dog work. Watch how we interact. If it is not your cup of tea, move on. If you see something you like, feel free to implement it into your own training. If you have a question, by all means please ASK! I enjoy helping people problem solve and think that is how everyone learns, including myself.

Train hard. Play harder.
