dog photos in black and white …

I always take my camera hiking, always. Sometimes it’s my good camera, most of the time it’s my cell phone version. My camera’s get to see some very cool places in the world, I consider our local mountains some of the coolest. Earlier this week on our hike it was kind of smokey, the colors…

train silent

Years ago, as in the late 1980’s, when I was on the Park City Ski Patrol, I was fortunate enough to be put on the K9 search and rescue team during my rookie year. I didn’t volunteer for it, raise my hand, or jump up and down and say pick me pick me. What ever…

tricks for commercial work – session #2

A very long time ago I did some commercial and TV work with my dogs. Mostly I was the behind the scenes trainer, but sometimes I did demo’s with my dogs. It was fun, the pomp around it was kind of zingy and good energy, but truth be told I wasn’t driven towards that industry….

say what you mean, mean what you say

Several years ago I was at a conference in Portland and had the opportunity to listen in on a session with Kay Laurence. I had followed her on line through videos and articles, but I had never seen or met her in person. What a treat! She was one of my earlier influences when I…
