It's getting crazy

Is everyone telling their friends about my blog? Over the last 3 days i have had triple the amount of visitors to my blog than every before..and folks are going through the whole blog from the start..thank you all....I write my blog to clear my head...to share my thoughts and it is being read...

Today after working 18 hours..which is my usual schedule.. 6am-10pm approx. and as tired as I am it has been very very rewarding..and I have been getting emails thanking me for coming into different families lives and mostly after the first time...thank you all for writing me...it makes the hard work worth it.

below is a little sampling of the last 48 hours of my life...



between 11am-1pm the dogs have down time from training...all are in the kennels and I still use the time for paperwork and cleanup..as you can see I also use the time for training..I have Matrix in the PLACE command...he was in PLACE for about an hour...he will be expected to do this in his own home when he goes back. This is great for household mgmt.



This is a newcomer...he arrived yesterday and has already bitten me...he is with me because of some aggression issues.....he enjoys sinking his sharp little teeth into flesh..LOL...he is a great dog....i have high hopes for him....I have an interesting training program for him combining...intense obedience with intense play....he is going to do great



Another newcome..Tsubo has had some issues with random aggression..and his owner wants to make sure he is going to be okay around children...so what do i do...put him with my kids...he is doing great..having lots of fun...playing with al of the dogs and the kids. This is taken in my childrens area of the training yard...he is in the PLACE command while the kids are running around



6 week old German/Belgian Shepherds that i started working with today..the owners got them at 2 weeks old  and have been bottle feeding them...I have formulated a great training plan for them..it is unusual to start working with a dog at such a young age...




Can you say Crystal Clear water...yes the dogs use this pool..only the best for my board and train dogs


Tsubo who has had a habit of lunging and trying to bite random people on the Blvd and coffee shops heads to Starbucks with me to do some training



Tsubo at Starbucks with me.....he did great..lots of people...lots of dogs going by...kids...strollers...great job Tsubo



6 dogs in a downstay....this is half way through our morning walk...the dogs were in a downstay for 30 minutes while i was talking to someone..this is in the street...cars, trucks, runners and bikes were always going by and no one moved.



look closely...the dogs are 100 feet away from me....lots of dogs..lots of poop....the dogs that you all see in a downstay are doing a sit stay while I throw poop bags out in a dumpster...they all stay in command...do not move...they did great...this is what Solid K9 Training is all about...

besides what you see above..i had a bunch of great training at home work and spent some awesome time with the kids...romy is growing up  and doing great with the dogs..she is only 18 months old and she is showing great promise as a dog trainer....as you all know Clover who is only 3 has been training dogs for most of her life and is a great help...
