My teens, though seemingly normal, don’t always have the most traditional taste in artwork.
While it is quite common to find posters of favorite bands, video games, pop culture icons, or sports teams hanging on the average teenager’s walls, my teens opt for a more educated look.
One of my boys, who is a huge history and geography buff, decorates his walls with maps, flags, and historical posters.
There was even a time that he was hiding photos of historical figures in our framed family photographs.
So, I probably shouldn’t have been surprised when another of my sons came home from school the other day carrying a huge wall hanging of The Periodic Table of Elements.
I was more than a little confused when I asked him where he got the thing and what he planned on doing with it.
My son looked at me like I was crazy.
The physics teacher gave the poster to my son and he had every intention on hanging his new treasure on his bedroom wall - of course.
Isn’t that where you normally hang a giant poster of the Periodic Table?
I believe I laughed and called my son a nerd.
He knows that’s a compliment coming from me;
I have been a nerd my whole life.
I love to learn new things - to read, to study, to explore.
Learning is a such a great adventure.
I want to share the joy of learning with everyone I can - my children, my employees, my clients.
This leads me to a topic we don’t talk about around here much, our education and credentials.
Honestly, the important thing is whether the work we do is helping our clients, so that’s what we focus on.
We don’t talk much about our training, certifications, ribbons or other accomplishments.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t have them.
On a rare occasion, someone might contact us and ask for our credentials and we send them.
But, in general, that stuff just hasn’t come up.
That is, until the other day when we received a random 1-star review in the middle of the night, from a person we had never heard of, claiming that our staff had no training.
I spent the day laughing. If they had only asked.
As far as I’m aware, we are the only dog training company around that offers not only paid internships, but we also pay for our staff members to earn their training certifications in a variety of topics ranging from agility and sports to nutrition.
We require that ALL our staff, even our office staff, be trained in dog behavior and safety.
Many of our staff know dog CPR and First Aid.
We always encourage continued training and we hold staff training sessions to practice old skills or learn new ones.
We take education very seriously - for both our staff and our clients alike.
