I’ve started to rack up a pretty big repertoire of classes that I have taken with Betsy, and I don’t want to forget everything we’ve done together, so I’ve started to compile a list/resume of everything we have done & learned 😀

Online Reading

In addition to classes, I follow a number of dog related blogs by very smart people. They write tons of extremely interesting and useful articles.
