“Train in harmony with the principles of how animals learn”
The whirlwind of life never seems to stop, and between teaching and running the Dog Corps. program at the Family Foundation School, working at the veterinary hospital, and training clients as my 3 jobs not to mention training my 7 dogs in Therapy work, Search and Rescue, IPO, and now movie acting. Plus running Life Long Tails Rescue and keeping up with the ever changing cycle of dogs and small animals in and out of foster its a wonder i remember to breath!
But there is no rest for the weary
April and May bring us the following
Emeline- At the end of the month Eme will take her IPWDA trailing test to certify as a Internationale police working dog association trailing K9. Eme has already proved herself running a few successful trails of run away students at the school i teach dog training at.
Raina- Is in the process of learning her role as a seeing eye/assistant dog for an upcoming film shooting next month. This is Raina’s first movie and she needs to learn 20 extra commands in addition to her basic obedience. Look for plenty of details and blog posts on this amazing opportunity for Raina and I, and of course the release of the movie in 2014.
Sören- Has his first confirmation show for the SV coming up this summer as well as his AD which is a 12 mile endurance test. This is the start to his IPO work and we are laying the foundation now!
Abby- This old girl is maintaining her SAR and therapy work and in training for an article certification that will prove to help at searches and at home when you lose your keys playing soccer with the kids 😉
Fugly- With the successful completion of his CGC this boy is on his way to therapy certification. We are continuing his training and he works almost daily with the kids at the school accomplaning them to classes and therapy sessions and spending down time in the dorms.
Anna- Also completed her CGC and will be moving on to her therapy test. Anna is usually found at home keeping things running smooth but she loves to come down and visit with the kids and hang out with them.
Kaze- The newest addition to the copilot pack is a vivacious 10 month old silky terrier named kamikaze. This girl has a bright future as we are getting her basic training in place and developing her hunt drive and her reward system. Watch for what cool events this girl will be in next!
So as our crazy spring ensues please bear with us. If you need help we are currently accepting a limited number of new clients in the Sullivan, Delaware, and Broome county area. Please visit our site as it gets updated. http://www.EIK9T.com
