Congrats to Aubie for finding Leinie at the Center of the Universe Brewing Co.  Leinie is a big fan of all breweries, especially since he is named after one.

Administrative Professional’s Day!

Unfortunately, owning a business like mine isn’t just about being out training dogs. There is  a lot of administrative stuff to do. Computer work, phone calls, accounting…you name it, it comes with the business. I haven’t taught the dogs how to make call backs but I have taught them how to hang with me when I am getting the boring administrative stuff done.  So thanks to Leinie and Frappy for…

If I could control the weather….

This time of year the weather can be incredibly frustrating. I seem to wake up every morning saying “If I could control the weather it will be above freezing with no wind chill so I can train outside today!” Unfortunately, I can’t control the weather. Follow Me Dog Training LLC’s official weather policy states that if the temperatures with wind chill stay below 35 degrees, all lessons and classes that…

Cooper is loving The Big Apple!

Recently I had a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier in my board and train program. Cooper was a tough case. Basically scared of his own shadow, unhappy, no confidence and a laundry list of allergy issues. AND he was moving to NYC which would have been a very tough environment for him before training. Cooper was a blast to work with. I loved seeing the terrier sense of humor return to…

Ticks Suck

Ticks are not fun. They spread so many illnesses both to humans and our pets. This year is predicted to be an incredibly bad year for ticks and from personal experience and from what everyone is saying, they are all over the place. If you aren’t doing a tick check on your dog every night, it might be something to start….especially if your dogs sleep with you. Within the past…

Chloe found Leinie at Three Lakes Park

Leinie was hanging out at Three Lakes Park in January. He loves it there, not just because of the cool kids playground where he can say hi to a lot of kids, but because of the trails and Nature center. Congrats to Chloe the Boxer for finding Leinie! Some other dogs found Leinie as well so we want to give them a special shout out as well! Thanks for going…

Georgia found Leinie at Rocketts Landing!

Leinie went exploring this April to Rocketts Landing.  Did you know that Rocketts Landing was once considered “the busiest inland port in America” Yep, thanks to Robert Rocketts in 1730 for developing a ferry service. It was also a home to the James River Squadron of the Confederate Army. Rocketts Landing has been rebuilt and has some cool places to walk with your dog! Congrats go out to Georgia for…

O’Toole’s is the place to find Leinie this March!

Leinie wanted to do something special for the March 2010 Where’s Leinie? challenge. So he went with a theme: St. Patrick’s day and leprechauns! Congratulations go out to Buddy and his family for finding Leinie at O’Toole’s Resturaunt & Pub! Buddy looks like a black blob next to the green wall, but we know it is him! O’Toole’s is a popular restaurant and pub and we got a few pictures…
