Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

The wardrobe with the Dalmations is great. I have worked with a few of this breed and my hat is off to you Trudy. Give me Tigers any day. When a pet passed my training course I would take them across the street to the fire department and take their picture with a fire truck.

Rebecca, Trudy says Thanks, working with the Dals was a challange, especially since she chose to do a Liberty act routine.But as you know they love to run, and they are aptly nicknamed "people pleasers" even as stubborn as they can be, they love praise & work for a pat on the head, and a kind word. I will run some pics one of these days.

Bill, The problems I had was with the owners, not the Pet. Wrong people got the wrong dog for the wrong reason. {101 delmations} Owners always thought thay had to have a tight grip and almost hang the poor animal. I always train with a halter, never a collar. Getting their attention is half the battle. I always gave them plenty of time to settle down before we ever started any commands. I should say request as commands sound too harsh, I found you have to make the pet want to do what you ask. If you use force you will never have a trust worthy pet. Am I a dog person or what? Once I get started there is no end. See what your pretty picture started?
