With winter coming I decided to join up here to find new things to teach my dog, Bayley. She's a 2.5 year old shep/husky mix. Very smart, lots of energy and lots of fun. She lives with 2 cats, a Maine Coon..big kitty and a Manx, not quite so big I'm also in the process of enrolling in Karen Pryor's Dog Trainer course so I figure that this site will help me learn how to do different things. I'm also hoping to teach my cats a few tricks since I have to train another companion animal as part of my course.
