Suzanne Clothier Seminar

I just spent the last two days attending a Suzanne Clothier behavioral seminar in Guelph! I have always really respected her ideals and teachings and was thrilled to listen to her and watch her work with dogs and their handlers. All in all I would go and see her again and encourage anyone else to as well!
If you haven't read her book "Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs" I highly recommend it! She is an advocate of dog training based in empathy, respect and balance to put it simply.
What a great seminar! It was also nice to know that the school I teach for and the way I have trained my own dogs is right on board with her teachings!

Outdoor Agility Classes Starting in May

If the weather holds out as planned agility classes will start outdoors in Carlisle starting in May! I think everyone is looking forward to being outside after a long winter.
One big change that we are planning on this year as we get ready for the season....we are adding safety fence to our existing fence so that all our little dogs will be able to play in the agility yard this year as well!
Hoping to see some new faces out this summer!
