Bea forwarded your email to Kitty and she forwarded it to everyone. Its good to hear from you! Attached are photos of the dogs I have now, Red Dog and Cricket. Red Dog is about 8 years old now, and getting a lot of gray hair. Cricket is about 3 years, but I have only had her for about 10 months. Its been a long time since I've had only two dogs, but its kind of nice.
Let us know if you ever come to California again, Gloria
Thank you for the update on you and Leo & Ellie. I'm glad to hear that they are both happy, even with the restrictions that Ellie has right now. It sounds like the number of students that you have is a good number. When word gets around (i.e. people talk about your ability to train), you will probably get more students.
Do you have a Public Recreation Department in your City or County? If so, you should contact them to see if they are willing to add an Obedience Training class for you to teach.
I recently was asked by the City of Campbell to teach an obedience class for them. It is through their Parks and Recreation Department. I will have 6-12 students. I hope people sign up for the class.
I'm doing some VST tracking with TJ, as he already got his TD and TDX earlier this year. I'm also working on some obedience and rally. He got his RN in January, but I am not comfortable working him off-leash yet. TJ is 72 pounds and very curious about many other smells. I'm being patient with his training.
Keep in touch with me. I miss seeing you and your pups.
I have not heard from you for quite a while. I'm concerned about how Ellie has been doing. Please let me know how she is. I think of you often. I had dinner with Penny Robinson last night and she was asking about you too.
I'm very busy teaching classes and teaching TJ. I will be teaching for the Campbell City Parks and Recreation Department in the fall. I'll teach two dog obedience classes for them. One in the morning and another in the evening. I'm looking forward to this.
