Going to pick up Dutch next week up in Silicone Valley. Get some work in with him and the new owner while I'm up there.. Six hour drive and a little ruff on the pocket book. Should be well worth it with the folks we will be building relationships and working with. Stand by for more on that front coming at you from the Bay Area Next Week..

Thursday night Obed in the park.. Achilles on a down stay. These small tables I had built are a great utility tool for positions. Down stays and the like.. Because they are small they allow for good posture. Puppy's really are what they are all about but all dogs can benefit from there use..

Just checking out his pedigree as I sit here. He's got that old East German Czech linage. Going to be a good one as he matures and we find the groove with him.. http://www.jinopo.cz/bloodlines.php?lg=en

Waiting for the boys to show up to work some dogs. Might as well take some pictures.. Moved Achilles up to the front burner in the training string. My next big project. Having a hard time though. Kind of like going from a sports car to a truck. Gear ratio and drive train are all in a different place.. This guy has lower gear ratio then I'm used to.. Going to take me a bit to find the right groove in the road with him..

So we wake up a 5.30 getting ready to go tracking. Hear this loud splashing of water. You know that sound of a broken pipe were you just know you have a broken pipe. Panic I was grabbing for the shut off valve.. Nope major down pour. Go tracking ten minutes away dry as a bone. Going to be a great day..

Time to start taking a little more effort in taking care of yourself. When the temps start to fluctuate like this, it's when you start catching colds and getting sick easer. Temps are down now, due to go back up drastically by end of week, into the weekend. Make sure your taking your vitamins getting your sleep and eating well..

Dogs and Dog Training is what I'm all about
Introduction
Professional dog trainer by trade for many years. Recently started  "Pro-Tech Dog Training" 

A little bit about who I am as a dog trainer.  Started training dogs when I was twelve years old, with my first dog an Australian Shepherd/ Dingo mix.  Professionally since I was sixteen, working with a well established training firm located in my home town of San Luis Obispo California. Trained my first GSD Sargeant,  who I trained through On Leash/Off leash Obedience &  Personal Protection all on my own. With helpers that I taught following Kohler's guard dog training book many years ago.. I have since traveled up and down the California coast training with some of the most well known training firms and trainers out there. Including Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer who I hung out with for a few years, even living at his place on 163rd for a year or so in LA. This is before he hit the big time and anyone even knew who he was..   I was also one of the first Professional Dog trainers representing Protection Dogs and there training on the net,  with one of the first Professional Protection Dog mailing list on the net, called "Protection-Dogs L."  The list represented the art and craft of training balanced and stable protection dogs to meet the consumers needs.. 

Since the seventy's when I first started training dogs, the world of dog training and the profession has changed tremendously.  I now use a baseboard of Positive Reinforcement and Marker Training for most all my training.   I would be what you call a "balanced dog trainer." Believing that every dog and owner are different and that the relationship with owner and dog are the most important aspect of any training program. I'm not what you would call a purist, using purely positive dog training methods, nor am I of the old school yank and crank trainers.  I truly believe that keeping an open mind, having as many tools and tricks in my tool bag as possible, Is the only way to approach the art of dog training today.   Knowing that to be good at my craft, I have to always be reaching to learn more, I'm  always looking to learn and grow.  Knowing full well that the good ones never stop reaching and never claim to know it all.  I am constantly striving to learn more, always in a constant search for more knowledge.   Learning never stops in my line of work. Right when you think you know it all, there is surely some one or something else that will show you, your wrong!    
Bragging rights
Started training dogs when I was twelve. Hung out with and was good friends with Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer before any one even knew who he was. Had one of the first professional Protection Dog Training groups on the net.. Still alive and kicking after all these years..
