Southwest Journal Article and Train the Trainer


The article in the Southwest Journal came out last week and it has really generated a lot of interest and activity. Jake Weyer wrote a really flattering piece and it was accompanied be a some great photos and a video on their website. One never knows what will come of an interview but this was very nice publicity. Here is the link.

She is an incredible dog trainer who has spent years developing techniques to both train dogs but most importantly their owners and handlers. This was a phenomenal experience and a great opportunity to work with one best dog trainers in the country. I walk away both humbled and grateful for the opportunity and experience. On the drive home I spent a great deal of time apologizing to Ruby and committing to improving my skills. Here is a quick photo of Margot and me and her phenomenal red Doberman Sanity.

The drive back from Iowa was uneventful but there were warnings about a big winter storm setting in. The storm hit and it was a tough day on the walk. We had a great group of dogs and welcomed a new dog, Boris the yellow lab. He is a fine young lab and it took him nearly half a block to settle in. We got in a sloppy walk around lake Harriet with my coat weighing nearly 20 pounds soaking wet when we returned. So much for spring (at least the paths were empty).
