A large part of my job is being an educator. I teach owners what to do, and why.
But last week I was more of a formal educator, lecturing vet nursing students at TAFE. And I am a mentor and faculty advisor for The Victoria Stilwell Academy. So I am helping to shape new dog trainers in using positive reinforcement methods.
But it is not just about teaching. I am also continuing my education. I have signed up to attend the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) Conference in the Hunter Valley in November. I'll see some dog training idols, and hopefully learn more about the latest dog training concepts and methods. Good dog trainers never stop learning and adapting. 😄
If you want to learn more about dog behaviour, a good place to start is the FREE online course at the Victoria Stilwell Academy: www.vsdta.com
And if you decide to go further, and tell them I sent you, there may be a chance that I am assigned as your mentor or faculty advisor! 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
