Suzanne Clothier Seminar

I just spent the last two days attending a Suzanne Clothier behavioral seminar in Guelph! I have always really respected her ideals and teachings and was thrilled to listen to her and watch her work with dogs and their handlers. All in all I would go and see her again and encourage anyone else to as well!
If you haven't read her book "Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs" I highly recommend it! She is an advocate of dog training based in empathy, respect and balance to put it simply.
What a great seminar! It is also nice to know that the school I teach for and the way I have trained my own dogs is right on board with her teachings.
