Dog Training in Denver: Weekly Roundup – Episode 9
Another busy (albeit shortened) week of dog training in Denver, Colorado! And we continue in a state of awe and thankfulness for our dog trainers, clients and friends.
As you probably realize by now, I like to use this round-up to talk openly to the people I care most about. Our family, dog trainers and clients. It gives me an opportunity to muse about the dog training life and share the excitement that is before us.
So, this week, I just want to list a few of the things I’m most thankful for this week:
Linda’s Clean Bill of Health
Just before our recent RV Workshop Tour, in which we traveled through Kansas City, Columbia and Omaha, Linda received some very frightening medical news. It stimulated a lot of prayer on this end.
However, she toughed it out and put on a brave face. It would not have been so difficult had she been able to go to the doctor quickly, but she ended up having to wait nearly three weeks to get a follow-up appointment. And, as you know, the unknown has a way of challenging us.
For those of you who have not met Linda, she is a powerhouse at FetchMasters. Her jobs include being my wife, best friend and business partner; training dogs; quality controlling our operation; and mentoring our other dog trainers. This company, our trainers, and our lives would not be what they are without her.
Fortunately, she made it to the doctor this week to learn it was a false alarm. So, we are all very thankful that everything turned out alright.
My Best Friends are FetchMasters Dog Trainers
You know I’m proud of our dog trainers and admin staff. We consider them part of our close inner circle of friends and family.
With our recent travels, they held down the fort flawlessly so Linda and I could focus on the work at hand. In today’s workforce, it sometimes is a struggle to find people you can really trust and count on. How FetchMasters ended up with the motherload of them, I do not know. But we did. And for that I’m thankful.
The next three months holds some big things for all of them. Stay tuned to find out why.
The Positive Gun Dog Training Movement May Be About to Get Real Well Known
We also had a chance to visit with an attendee of one of our previous workshops, who lives in Illinois. We invited her to come out to Denver to chat with us about the creation of a national positive gun dog training center in Indiana.
We crunched a lot of numbers and strategized quite a bit. And, in the end, I think we all parted ways feeling like this is something we can do. The workload ahead is hard, but it would fulfill a lot of dreams, create some good opportunities for worthy people, and represent some good progress in that niche.
Dreaming makes me feel good. And I am thankful we got the chance to dream together with these friends. More on who they are and our plans soon.
Thankfulness for You
FetchMasters Dog Training rests on the shoulders of many. Our learning has come from so many other trainers, working with so many dogs and so many clients, collaborating with so many people, and so much blood, sweat and tears.
We are blessed. No doubt about it.
