Weekend review: puppies!

This weekend, I spent a lot of time propelling myself further into the world of dog training and animal behavior. On Saturday, I met with a well-known trainer to interview for her animal behavior course. It’s a 6-month course that will include online materials, tele-courses, as well as hands-on experience with dogs, horses, and alpacas. I couldn’t be more excited to start in March. This puts me on track to complete this goal well before 2013 ends.

On Sunday, I met up with a group of positive trainers in the mid-Atlantic region for one of their tri-annual meet-ups. It was a great networking opportunity and I met trainers who have their own businesses and also those that work at shelters. Of course, puppies were present and I was in heaven. The pups below are all available for adoption in the Baltimore, MD area.

Charlotte & Wilbur, 8 weeks, sitting pretty and waiting for their treat. Look how fast Charlotte’s tail is wagging!

Just a cuddle with Wilbur to make my day complete. Why yes, I am wearing a cardigan with Scotties all over it!

Onwards and upwards – it’s all very exciting! As I told the trainer on Saturday when she asked what I wanted to do with my certification. I said I have ideas, I don’t have plans. I’m open to whatever the universe brings my way.
