Describe your interests and goals.

I would like to provide my two miniature Schnauzers with continuous exposure to new and different people and dogs. They are just over 1 and a half years old and still full of puppy energy that is getting more disciplined and confident with every new experience, although the water is still a challenge for one of them! I really want to learn from others and avoid the common mistakes we innocently make sometimes. I like the hiking aspect of this group as I am physically very active and want to keep my dogs active and healthy too.

Describe your dog related experience.

Not much since childhood, but I have bought several good books on dog/human behavior and am very, very willing to be taught!

Please tell us about yourself and about your dog(s).

I am a recently separated Human Resources professional who will be sharing custody of the dogs. They are very well mannered, love other people and other dogs and I want to continue to support their mental and emotional growth. I am very concerned about keeping my dogs mentally and physically challenged and healthy. Emmitt is the love bug and very attentive and has never met a stranger. Jasper is somewhat aloof and, although he is VERY smart, he can lack discipline (doesn't automatically come when called!) and needs more confidence around strange things.

Tell us how the Dog THAF Meetup might be able to assist you with meeting your goals and how you might be able to assit others in meeting their goals.

I want to learn from other, more experienced people who also love their dogs and I would be very happy to help someone else and provide encouragement and support to them whenever I can.
