I want to take a moment to talk about dog training, social media, successes, failures, and your lawn. I am sure you've all heard the old adage the grass is always greener on the other side. A long time ago I had heard another rendition of this that struck a chord with me and it basically stated that the grass is greener where ever you water it. I love this idea but more than anything I’d like to ask why does anyone else's grass matter?
I want to start by telling you a story. Close your eyes and picture the perfect day - nice fluffy white clouds in a big blue sky, a lake, a beautiful beach, your closest friends and your trusty sidekick - your dog.
This was the scene before me. We arrived at the beach and spent a fun couple of hours laughing with friends and throwing the ball into the water for Tori, our 1 year old GSD. It was her first time to this lake and she loved it. Running, splashing in the waves and chasing after her ball. Approximately two hours later we started packing up to head home. Everything was about to take a drastic turn.
Many characteristics go into the making of a good dog trainer. Aspects such as such as experience, education and personality. One of the defining principles here at Canine Coaching is you can never learn too much. We strive to constantly learn new skills, techniques and methods because we believe the more we know the better equipped we are to help you with your dog training.
Many things are taught by experience and no two clients are the same. Through the experiences you have as a trainer you become better equipped to address the needs of each client. This being said experience isn't everything.
As with any industry,the face of dog training is always changing. New theories are developed, research impacts the science behind training, and people try new things. 2018 is shaping up to be quite the year for Canine Coaching.
Here's a preview of how we are growing to better serve you!
