Too cold to learn

Richmond Virginia is experiencing some cold weather! As Follow Me Dog Training LLC gets ready for the day, the first thing we do is check the weather conditions. I usually have a good idea by how long Frappy and Leinie want to stay outside for their morning walk, but always good to check the forecast. When the temps say 20 degrees but feels like 11 degrees it is time to…

A good read!

Leinie and I recently returned from our trip to Wisconsin for E5 at That’s My Dog! Inc. Before E5 we had the opportunity to relax a bit at Buteo Bay with our friends at the Wisconsin Canine Coach. Buteo Bay is the perfect place to hang out by the lake and relax, me with a book and Leinie with a Jolly Ball! Dog books are a large part of the…

Roger found Leinie at Dorey Park!

A wonderful black lab named Tio, A Belgian Malinois named Lager (a near a dear dog to our heart!) and a Jagdterrier named Emma.   Emma has a very special talent for digging holes. In-fact, having watched her in the act…focused and frenzied…I’d say…

E4 at That’s My Dog! Inc

Follow Me Dog Training LLC strongly believes in continuing education. That is why every year we have made the trip to Hazel Green, Wisconsin for a conference that Robin MacFarlane of That’s My Dog! Inc has hosted. The first 3 years I actually worked out at That’s My Dog! Inc and loved meeting dog trainers and professionals from all over the world through the E-cademy and the conference E-collarpalooza. This year…
