Clear, Concise and Consistent, Again and Again!

I wrote Clear, Concise and Consistent! (below) back in February of 2015 when I added a new boy puppy to my pack and was working hard on training him to be a gentleman as well as a competitor. It’s hard to believe that boy just turned 5 and is a beautiful, well-trained Champion Polish Lowland…

Here we are again, thinking about getting back to a healthy lifestyle after holidays full of stresses and indulgences–that were anything but healthy. So, is it back to the gym where the biggest part of the workout is finding a place to park your car? Did you try this plan last year, or multiple years,…

Can I Really Have It All?

This blog article was first published in 2014, but with New Year’s Resolutions looming it seems like a good time to pull it out and dust it off. Many, if not most of us do well with having set goals to work toward but make sure the goals you commit to set will set you…
