A close personal friend and client of mind recently lost the love of her life, her 7-year-old Airedale Terrier, to a devastating illness. These girls were pretty much attached at the hip; they frequented many an outdoor café, strolled through Philadelphia meeting a zillion people (this little Airedale had quite the entourage), and had a great condo in Center City where they entertained often (and I may add, with lots of wine!). So when she told me that she was ready for another dog and would like to rescue a dog for the first time in her life, I...Read More

Your dog is sooooo good at home, but gets very distracted outside or at social settings! This is one of the most common complaints that I get from training clients. Most peoples’ dogs are great...Read More
Last night I took one of those flights that make you wonder whether you are ever going to put your feet on the ground again. Flying from Atlanta to Philadelphia in the dark in a thunderstorm; the plane was rumbling and shaking all over the place. I glanced to the woman sitting next to me, and sighed. . . and she said, well at least she’s doing ok. She motioned down and then unzipped a small, black dog carrier which had been sitting underneath her seat. Out popped the head of a plucky little Boston Terrier named Rally! Her owner...Read More
