    Hi from Southern California!

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Jan and I have had collies most of my life. I've always enjoyed teaching tricks and it exciting to see a forum dedicated to them. Besides being big on teaching tricks, I have also done obedience, rally, flyball, a little agility, and freestyle. It's all so much fun. I also have a website dedicated to teaching kids humane and positive ways of training their dogs. This is our tenth year on the web. I look forward to reading the forum, learning new things, and helping out when I can. Thanks!

    Hi Jan!

    Welcome to the website! I'm so happy to hear that you like the website, I hope many other people get inspired by it and start training their dog to do tricks. I really like your website and I admire your ambition to build a website dedicated to teaching kids to have a fantastic relationship with their dog.

    Hope to hear back from you soon! :dogsmile:

    I've visited your website a few times in the past, before I fond Jean's, I can tell you. It's been very helpful at times, that's for sure.

    What a neat website! I have a 3 month old chihuahua named Bianca. She has learned the basics, such as her name, where to go potty, etc., so we have started on the next level. Right now we're at "sit"! ;) She is a very fast learner, so I am here to learn how to be a better teacher!

    Thanks, I'm happy to hear that you like it. I wish you tons of fun and treasurable moments with your dog. Take lots of pictures as they don't stay small for long! :)

    My name is Maria and I have been trained by my dogs for some time. Pabaluski is a Min Pin, male, 8 years old, and Sheba is an Englisgh Pointer, female, 5 years old. They are both untrainable, but I decided that we can have a little fun with tricks while I am home-ridden because of an illness. I want to give them something back for everything they have given to me. Maybe I should write this in a different way: they are sooooo demanding that I can't do anything but being with them. Lets see who is going to train who!!!
    I hope somebody here can help me with this task.
    Thank you.

    LOL. Welcome to the website, just make sure that you make your dogs earn their treats, no freebies in dog training! :dogsmile:

    Hope you have fun, and if you have any questions let us know!

    Hi gadawg, welcome to the academy also! I see you've uploaded a logo or some sort, is that a team or something?

    I am a new member and I have 3 Basset Hounds. Each one is a joy and give me a lot of companionship. I just don't know what took me so long to get my first Basset 4 years ago. His name is Little Man. Then I adopted my now 5 year old female Basset from a local vet and pet project. Not quite 2 years ago I bought our second Basset from our local pet store. All I can say is they are truly the "Clowns of the Dog World.

    Hi everyone I am new to the forum

    My name is Sharon and I have two dogs that I am presently training. both are terrior mixes and what energy they have. One my husband and I adopted is a little over a year, her name is Bindi and the other we have adopted about 2 months ago is 17 weeks old, his name is Cody. Both are smart as can be and have boundless energy, I am trying to keep them occupied with different activities. I hope one day to get some agility equipment and have a blast with them in our yard. Until then, we are getting to know each other.
    I hope to be able to learn much here.

    Greetings from Nowwhereland!

    Hi, I'm Arwen (Lori, AKA profiam, is my human). I am a 6-month old Bernese Mountain Dog and live in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I live with my cousins Princess-Border Collie Mix (7 months) and Sam-big ol' lab (4 years) and their humans Brandon & Caitlin. We also have some of those little mean fuzzy things with hissing & claws - Princess is teaching me how to irritate them, but Lori keeps saying "no." I really think that's Princess full name: Princess No.

    My human says she's had animals all her life, and I'm slowly learning her language - who ever invented all those jibbery sounds must have been out in the sun too long. I've figured out what "sit" means, but really, does that mean you HAVE to not move? What's the point? So, she made me join this so we can both figure out some better training options for her. She really wants to understand us all as we're all different kinds of canines.

    Thanks for this website. It looks like fun! :dogsmile:

    Hi All

    A Friend in Brisbane, Australia sent me the link to your website. I have been trick training for over ten years and have done several live events with my Jack Russell's. I have also done TV / Film work and have two trained JRT's, a PBGV and a Seal Point Birman cat.:doglaugh:
  16. Jean Cote Administrator

    Wow welcome to the website! I'm sure you will know most of what is taught in the classroom but I'm positive you can get some pretty good ideas on the forum - some people have some really cool and inovative ideas for tricks that I never thought of. :dogsmile:

    Zach and Steve

    Hello there, we are Zach and Steve. Our owner signed us up for this listserv. Makes sense, since we already have our own blog.

    Zach says: I'm more interested in tricks than Steve. I like learning, and I love the clicker. I can't wait to have new ideas for more things to add to my repertoire. My current best tricks are bow and roll over.:dogcool:

    Steve says: I'm a little hyper but do enjoy doing tricks. I'm really good at standing on my hind legs. I'm a little too reactive to be in a class with other dogs, but I am actually a sweetheart.:dogph34r:
