It’s been a big week for me. I can’t wait to tell you about it.
But first, have you had a chance to schedule your free, no obligation evaluation?

It's the first step to having a Great Dog in 8 Weeks (click here to learn more).
I have seen a lot of changes this year, but this is one that stands out. This week, I sent my son, Joe, off to his Senior Prom.
Allow me a moment to be a gushy mom.
I remember staring for hours at this boy when he was an infant, just watching him breathe.
I remember sending him off to his first day of Kindergarten.
I remember being amazed at how quickly time flies when I sent him off to his first day of high school.
In a few weeks, Joe will graduate. It’s an end of an era.
During my moments of bittersweet nostalgia, I think back to when I would hold my little baby and day dream about what he would become. There was no question that there was a lot of work ahead. I had so many big dreams for my little boy.
t’s not that different from a lot of things in our lives. We have hopes, dreams, expectations. We plan, learn, and work to help them become a reality.
It’s like how most of us feel when we bring a new dog into our families.
We daydream about having our new best friend by our side. About enjoying long walks together. Or about sharing an adventure in the great, big world.
But rarely do we bring home a dog that just immediately understands how to behave in the situations we put them in.
They need training for that.
Those daydreams can become a reality, but it takes work.
A woman stopped by today, cradling her brand-new puppy. The puppy snuggled in her arms while thewoman talked to me about the big plans that she has for this precious, little one. We talked about training goals. As the woman was leaving, she made a comment about how holding the puppy reminded her of holding a baby.
It reminded me too.
