I used to be one of the people who would avoid virtual classes at all costs and opt for in-person learning. I paid thousands of dollars every year to travel across North America to do in-person workshops & also paid extra for working spots because I didn’t think I could possibly grasp everything I needed without actually DOING the exercises in-person with my own dogs and getting real-time feedback from my instructor(s). While my dogs actually handle travel & living in a hotel extremely well, they still don’t decompress as well between training sessions in a hotel room as they do being able to hike offleash and sleep in their own bed at home. If I’m being honest, neither do I.
I am a dog owner and a trainer. Every day I learn something new from my dogs and I hope to share experiences that will help people understand their dogs better.
