There’s Nothing Better than Teaching Great Students
During the Spring session of the CATCH University for Dog Trainers (our 6-week on-campus course), Pia Silvani and I were reminded of all the reasons why we love teaching. There is something magical about sharing what you know with enthusiastic students. When you see them work hard to build their skills, and then turn around and use what they’ve learned to make a positive difference with shelter dogs, it is hugely rewarding for everyone.
Tears of joy were shed during graduation when we looked back on all that was accomplished and talked about the wonderful dogs we got to work with (many of which got adopted during the course). A huge thank you to the shelter staff at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center and the hard-working students themselves. Here are some video examples of the fine work they did.
