"Patience combined with persistence is a great combination for success!"

Welcome folks!

After getting such a great response from our first review, I wasn't 100% sure what product I wanted to talk about for our second review.

Although, over the past few weeks, my answer was made up as I keep having this same exact conversation with my students...

To My Students,

What I have to say in this letter, I hope is withstanding enough, that it doesn't need any further preamble from me...

Dear Students,

I am writing this as I want to clarify that I am not your instructor, nor am I your trainer. 

No, I have not, nor will I ev...

Welcome folks! Thanks for tuning in for our very first product review on "Shine's Shining Star Reviews"! The very first product Shine and I are going to review is the Carlson Pet Products Portable Pup Travel Pet Bed.

As a dog trainer and Agility coach, my students ask me all the time about different dog training products that I use with my own dogs and "dog stuff" in general. Now, I have four dogs of my own, Blade, Viper, Shine and Hoot and to be frank, we use a lot of dog stuff!

Recently, I introduced my youngest dog, Hoot.

Hoot IS a hoot and boy, does he make me laugh.

In a little over a week, it will be nine months since he entered my life and frankly, to date it has been the loudest nine months of my life...

I've pushed off and pushed off introducing you all to Hoot, not because I haven't had words but because he really doesn't need...

It was almost a month ago that Shine and I stepped to the line at a trial with intention for the very first time. Now, her and I dabbled in a few runs here and there last spring and summer but that, that was entirely different. 

In those runs, I simply wanted to give he...

For weeks now, I've tried to put together an introduction that encompasses all that Shine is to me and yet, I keep finding myself falling short. 

It seems fitting that as I type this (again) it also happens to be her third Birthday.

Her third Birthday.

Oh, Viper...

Out of my three dogs, he is often the one I have the hardest time talking about (or for this matter, writing about). Not because I love him any less than Blade or Shine but because one must get to know him to truly understand what I mean when I try describi...
