Chase 'N Pull Toy. It looks like a big cat toy.
Being outside, running in large circles, playing with water when the hose is on, playing with other dogs, going places in the car, taking walks, and chasing squirrels.
Being left home alone when Yoli and I go out.
Yoli the Mexican mix, Neko the tuxedo cat, and Tasha the Siamese mix.
I caught the training bug in 2005 when we adopted our dog Yoli. I studied clicker training at the Canine Connection for three years. Yoli earned her CGC title, learned tricks, and dabbled in canine freestyle dancing. To improve my handling skills, I joined Rally classes taught by Dee through the Butte County Kennel Club. In 2010, Yoli earned her Rally Novice title and I joined BCKC.
My life has gone to the dogs! I have fostered 15 dogs and volunteered at the Butte Humane Society. I practice canine massage, animal Reiki, and Tellington TTouch. I organize dog training classes for BCKC. I enjoy reading dog training and behavior books. I take inspiration from trainers such as Leslie McDevitt, Jane Killion, Patricia McConnell, Suzanne Clothier, and Judy Gamet. I am dedicated to force-free training. I strive for nothing less than my dogs' cooperation and willingness to work with me.
