This morning I had the pleasure of logging into my Facebook account to discover that an article I’d written more than a year ago has been re-shared by the publication and is being passed around the social networking site by interested readers.

It’s the first time I’ve had that experience.  It’s pretty cool!

You’ll find the article here.  It’s about how training a dog can be frustrating, and it offers some tips on ways to manage that frustration that don’t involve taking it out on the dog by way of leash corrections or angry verbal reprimands.  The good news is, if you ever find yourself getting frustrated, you’re completely normal!

Happy training!

I’m pleased to announce that “Positive Protection,” an article I wrote for Whole Dog Journal, about the use of R+ training for Police K9 teams, was named Best Article, Behavior and Training by the Dog Writers Association of America.

It was an honor to highlight the great work of the law enforcement teams dedicated to advancing the R+ movement.
