The Professional Dog Trainer


I could manage without a trainer. I have a psychologist's foundation in behavior, had a trainer for Mimi and still have all the notes, and I have trained Chou Chou to do basics like sit, down, stay. But she will be a big dog that I have to control, and as a herding dog, she will have a mind of her own. The more training, the better.

I Play With the Ball



Every day, Chou Chou goes outside to play in the yard. I throw the ball and she eats the grass. So I run and fetch the ball and throw it again.
