I love my students.

My students are all really great people

Two favorite parts of class tonight were words being added to my vocabulary.

Sometimes I suggest a dog/puppy get a break halfway through class. The dog can go outside, pee in the grass or just settle out of the environment, and come back in 3-5 minutes. At the end of class, one couple thought the "intermission" helped their dog quite a bit!

One person justified her flexi-leash walks as "I trained him for exploration walking" She was half joking, she didn't really have to train her terrier x to pull and explore and smell.

But exploration walking and intermissions are now part of my training vocabulary.
