So this is my last week before I retire. Semi retire I should say as I will still teach in home consults for a while. It's sad in a way but I'm thrilled to have more leisure time, not have to rush around as much, time to devote to my dogs and time with grandbaby Lydia. And time to make some much needed home repairs and upgrades. Time to do some yardwork which I love. Time to visit my mom's grave site which I haven't done. Time to go to flea markets, yard sales and cook more for my dogs. Maybe get a new puppy, (possibly therapy dog )this fall or next spring.
You guys will still see me around. Maybe at the Family Pet Center, the parks, dog events, dog classes with the new trainers I've help mentor. Maybe at Krogers or Aldys or Wal-Mart. I'll have time to chat and not have to rush.
I'm still going to keep my Playful Pooches and Parents Dog Training Facebook page, this blog, my website and Instagram. When I get a new puppy, you'll be the first to know. I'll keep you updated on Lil Lydia, Mac, Tulip and Sage.
It's been a joy and pleasure to be your dog trainer of choice. If you only remember one thing from my classes, remember to train force free and positive. Always. Don't let anyone tell you different.
I'm always reachable by phone, text, email or pm me. I leave you in good hands with 3 trainers I've mentored: Allison Camp, Diana Healy and Haley Howe. All great and awesome trainers.
The past 15 years have flown by. It's been wonderful and I have the best clients and dogs! Truly!
