In this week’s podcast, I’ve interviewed Kristin Rosenbach, ATC, Stott Pilates Certified Instructor. Kristin is an instructor in my Online Classroom, and she helps students take the handling information I’m giving out turn theory in to action in a very real way.

In the first of this two part series, we explored the topic of what “Watch Your Dog” really means. Check it out if you haven’t already heard it. In this podcast, we’re going to look at a few exercises that you can do to improve your ability to watch your dog!
In my day to day life, do I view struggle as a sign of weakness? Or, do I view struggle as a challenge, as an opportunity for growth? In my day to day interactions with my dogs, how to I react when I bump up against something I don’t know, don’t understand, or struggle with?
This week, I’m posting part one of a two part podcast that was originally created for the Functional Fitness class that is taught in the Online Classroom. Kristin Rosenbach, who is a Certified Athletic Trainer, is the main instructor, but I of course contribute to the class, AND benefit from it (I’m a little sore right now from one of her agility-specific workouts!).
Today I wanted to take a moment to talk about equipment safety….

Just what IS consistency, and what can you do about changing the type of consistent behavior you’re currently engaged in?
For those of us involved in a team sport with our dogs, we serve not only as trainers, but as canine coaches too, and although it’s taken me several years to fully grasp the concept, I do believe that in order to achieve maximum success with our dogs as athletes, we must be flexible coaches, able to be the coach our dog needs us to be as his/her needs change, rather than expecting our dogs to conform constantly to our needs.
