I just stumbled upon this site last night, and after spending just about all night reading the forums, decided to join =). Already my new favorite website, and very much looking forward to posting our progress as we work toward our ultimate goal of performing. I'm Dani, CPDT-KA, will be submitting my application for my Certified Trick Dog Instructor shortly, and have a lovely clan of 3 talented critters. Well, 2 of them are talented, 1 gets by on her good looks ;-). They are Duke (5 y/o Golden), Athena (5 y/o Chow, aka the pretty one), and Lin-Zee (2-3 y/o Papillon). My biggest setback is not always proofing their behaviors, so I am hoping that this site will keep me motivated to do so =).
