ClickerExpo has come and gone, the CPDT-KA exam is complete, birds are singing and things are getting green. It was a crazy March and one I won't soon forget. Not as much time spent with family and dogs as I would like, but they hung in there with us as we plodded through the month working, reading and studying. Thanks guys!!!

The results of the exam will be here within six weeks and hopefully I will then have the designation of "CPDT-KA" behind my name -- Certified Pet Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed. It's just another step in wanting to help people have better relationships with their dogs.

ClickerExpo was amazing and I hope to return anytime it's within a reasonable distance of home. I learned so much and have already put so much of it into play with both our dogs and in our classes. I highly recommend the experience!!!

And this is Holy Week. The most important time of year in the Christian Church. Amid all the chaos and confusion, I am trying to remember what happened during this week in Jesus' life and to be thankful and faithful to His sacrifice for me.

Blessings everyone!!!
Happy Easter -- He is Risen -- He is Risen Indeed!!!
