The Difference A Year Can Make

A lot has happened in the past year.  I got a job as a trainer at Petco.  I quit said job (for reasons I won't go into here.)  Became an assistant for Bea at My Dogs Place.  And unrelated to dog training, have been hired as a teacher at two different music programs.

Fi has made amazing behavioral progress in the past year.  Some of the highlights are:

  • She is able to accept people in our house.  She has allowed my mom, brother, and friends to be in the house, and even pet her.
  • I can take her to public areas without worrying about meltdowns
  • She comes to My Dogs Place with me every Sunday.  Not only does she participate in class with me, but we are slowly teaching her how to socialize with dogs.
  • She will take food from strangers

Above is Fi on the couch with my friend, Jess. 

I just wanted to post this quick update to get the blog moving again.  More to come, soon!
