My life revolves around dogs; all dogs whether I'm training, shooting, writing about or just relaxing; I can most often be found around the canine species.
I have been involved with dogs for over 35 years. I started in the conformation ring at the age of 13 and moved onto obedience and training. After the birth of my three children I discovered positive reinforcement and never looked back.
Once my training switched from conventional to positive; my relationship with dogs was never the same. A dog's mind is a wonderful and complicated thing. Positive training meant finding solutions; watching, learning and implementing. I read and read and read some more; delving into anything regarding dog behavior and modification. I joined the APDT and attended the 6th Annual APDT Educational Conference in San Diego. And continued extensive research on body language, markers, bridges, shaping and techniques used to better close the gap between the human and canine connection.
I now spend most of my time writing and working on webinar canine related information in order to help others to improve their canine relationship.
