Pam & Twix
I wanted to thank Pam for a wonderful day together! I admire her work in the purely positive training world, and hope that our schedules can align long enough for her to be my mentor as I embark on the dog training industry on my own! I really want to compete with Dolce in dog sports, but taking group classes is unrealistic with his reactivity as it is. She is an experienced competitor in a variety of venues, and a valuable resource. I cannot thank her enough.
I'm also hoping to really focus on training Dolce to train. I've been watching Emily Larlham's DVD set called 101 Ways to Think Outside the Box, courtesy of Tawzer Dog's rental program. I am full of wonderful ideas how to go about motivating Dolce to work for food and toys, find the work itself reinforcing, and fill in our training gaps. I love that girl!
