On My Mind: My Dinner with Andre

Clicker friends

At the most recent ClickerExpo, I met two new Certified Training Partners (CTP), graduates of Karen Pryor Academy’s (KPA) flagship Dog Trainer Program. They were Andre Yeu, who runs a dog training school in Toronto, and one of his teachers, Mirkka Koivusalo, from Finland. Soon after that I was scheduled to give a talk in Canada, at the University of Guelph. I e-mailed Andre and asked if after my university gig I could come to Toronto, visit his school, and meet some other KPA graduates from the area. Andre said that would be great!

On My Mind: Bedbugs!

I  received a phone call from the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). They were looking for a dog-training speaker for a conference about dogs and pest control.

On My Mind: Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011!

For me, the biggest thrill of 2010 was the rise of the Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Certified Training Partner (CTP). A CTP is a dog trainer who has passed our challenging flagship course with high grades. That means he or she truly understands how to use reinforcement technology, at a high level of skill, on any learner—including the human owner.
