A Note From Instructor Kristi Benson
Hi! I'm Kristi, your course instructor. I share my small farmhouse with six former sled dogs and a very bouncy spaniel. That’s…a lot of dog! Living up close and personal with so many sled dogs and in such close quarters, I've become an expert at handling the dogs+guests scenario. With my crew, this means a lot of organization. We make plans to ensure the dogs are tired and fed before the guests arrive, as much as possible. We plot out who will go where and for how long.
In addition to mastering this particular ballet, I've been able to help my amazing clients, who share their homes with numerous other breeds and types (cutie pies, all of them): pit bulls, little tiny curly-haired pumpkins, German Shepherd Dogs, and—who could forget—the Labradors, who seem to share a love of pulling on leash with sled dogs, but unlike sleddies, they seem to jump up. And up. And up. And up.
If you have a dog who pesters and jumps in gleeful dog-like abandon, this is the course for you. Calm, Cool, and Collected is just about the most diametrically opposed to the dog who jumps on guests and can't settle down no matter what or when or why. In this course, we'll teach your dog to do something else instead of pestering, and something else instead of jumping. And we'll give you the skills to easily plan for and manage guests in your home, with your dog. And our promise to you: we will do so without harming your dog, your relationship, or your dog's gleeful personality.
