My degree is in psychology, Beginning in the 80's I was designing token economy systems in the mental health system. I began clicker training when my son wanted a big dog and correction training was not an option.
I began training for Petco in '03. I have gone through three iterations of "Petco Training" and the current one is now (finally) using clicker and marker words (Yeah!). I am currently a mentor for Petco helping to train new dog trainers. So far I have trained eight.
"pursuing more information of TAGteaching."
I'm always so energized by these meeting I wish more of our members would join us.
Thanks for the welcome! You'd mentioned the next meeting, when will it be? Wendy
Hi Peter... Yes Otto has all his basic skills, so I guess we'll be starting in April...thanks for the clarification!
What is the cost for your ten class dog training program in Canton? If a class is missed could we still take the Canine Good Citizen evaluation?
Hi Peter, join me on Meetup today!
Just curious if you would ever consider holding a meeting on Saturday on the North Shore? Maybe Coco Keys Resort Hotel in Danvers? Or someplace even just a tad north of Boston?
Hello Peter and thank you for the warm welcome! I look forward to meeting you and becoming a part of this group. I will certainly do my best to regularly attend meetings especially if some are going to be closer to me. Again I look forward to meeting with and you and the rest of the group!
Hi Peter! Thank you for the warm welcome. what a pleasure. I am SO bummed I can't make it tonight.. Thursday nights are not good for me usually, because I teach drop-in classes that night. I will absolutely make it to the next one if at all possible! My New England Bully Breed Club is on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/NEBBC and also on meetup, which probably would give you the best idea of what we're all about: http://www.meetup.com/new-england-bul.... Can't wait to meet you.
Hi, Peter! Thanks for the note!
We lost Brandy to auto-immune disease in October. It happened pretty suddenly -- she was fine one Sunday (she'd been feeling really well on a liver-and-kidney-supportive diet) and we had to put her to sleep the next Sunday. Thank Dog for Dr. Harrington, who met us at RAH at 11:30 Sunday PM to help her on her way....
I hope to make the December meeting. I downloaded the minutes. One of the topics is that of a website -- which I can probably help with. :-)
Hi, Mondays will generally work better than Tues. through Sept. After that most days are fine. I have a fairly flexible schedule but divide time with husband's rotating schedule and dealing with a rental roperty as well as the dog business so it varies.
