Dedication
We dedicate this book to:
Our clients and their dogs. We fall in love with
every dog we teach, for they each come to us with
a valuable lesson. This lesson may come in the
form of learning about dogs, it may come in the
form of learning about people, and it may come in
the form of learning about ourselves. Our clients
and their dogs teach us to use our hearts and our
heads in good combination and balance.
Our own personal animals with whom we’ve
journeyed over the years. Their lessons are
imprinted on our hearts and we are forever connected to them.
The beloved animals now in our lives who
have devoted themselves to our companionship.
They’ve waited and watched patiently as we created this manuscript. At times they offered a
needed break from writing, at other times a simple “lean” or gentle kiss to offer adoration and
support.
Finally, each other for our patience and devotion to our partnership, which is Tall Tails Training. Our friendship has proven that you can, in
fact, teach “old” dogs new tricks!
