Dear Beloved Dog Training Community
It is with mixed emotions that I share some news with you all. After 16 incredible years of working, teaching, and speaking in the dog training industry, I find myself at a crossroads, and have decided to take a hiatus.
This decision was not made lightly, and I want to express my deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who has been a part of this remarkable journey.
From the moment I embarked on this path, my life has been enriched beyond measure. The bond I’ve forged with all of you – my students, clients, and colleagues – has been a source of immense joy and inspiration. Together, we have celebrated victories, overcome challenges, and witnessed the transformative power of positive reinforcement and patience in our canine companions.
The dogs, of course, are the ones who have made this journey extraordinary. They are, after all, the true teachers of this profession, and each and every one of them, with their unique personalities and quirks, has left an indelible mark on my heart. Their infinite capacity for learning, sometimes against tremendous odds, has continually humbled me. They have taught me just as much (surely more) than I have taught them, especially when it comes to patience, empathy, compassion, and resilience.
During this hiatus, I plan to take some time to recharge, reflect, and explore new avenues of personal and (possibly, maybe…) professional growth. But truthfully, I think I’m more likely trying retirement from the industry on for size… to see if it “fits”.
I will cherish the memories we’ve created, the relationships we’ve built, and the lessons we’ve learned together. In the meantime, I encourage you to continue your pursuit of creating stronger bonds with your canine companions. The world of dog training is vast, and there is always more to discover and explore!
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all my past students and clients for your trust in me, and for the privilege of working alongside you and your wonderful dogs. And to my colleagues, from whom I’ve learned so, so much! You’ve not only been my clients and peers but also my friends and family, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
As I step away for this hiatus, I hope you – my clients and students – stay connected with our community, support one another, and never stop celebrating the incredible journey of training, and nurturing the harmonious connections you’ve built with your dogs.
With profound gratitude,
