Welcome to "The Dog Park"
I created this site mainly to publish a few things i like sharing about my dogs and what i've learned as a dog owner. Nothing on here should overrun the advice of a true dog trainer - everything is purely based on my experiences and thoughts.
In addition to some training tips there will be photos of my dogs, articles on how to choose a dog for your family, and other nifty tidbits i've learned over the past few years. Again, i stress that i am not a professional and everything i write about was done at the suggestion of my own trainer.
Please note that a few things MAY be copied from other books - i will reference them if i do so. I will also have a section in my "Links" page just for books that i've read, liked, and used. Eventually, i will also have a page or two dedicated to my dog walking business if i ever get it up and running. No promises yet though! Enjoy looking around.
Remember: The links page has a bunch of links to nifty sites with more information. If you cannot find anything in particular and are curious about my response to it (say a behavior problem i don't have posted) then check out the questions and comments page and let me know! I try to check every day and have new stuff posted twice a week.

This will be strictly voluntary - if you can spare a dollar or two, that would be great to help keep this site up and running. At the end of every month, the money i don't need for the site will be donated to my local shelter.
Most of the photos are not of me or my dogs and most were not taken by me. I found a bunch from various free sites on the web. If your photo is up here and you don't want it to be, let me know and i will remove it. There is also some text that has been taken from various books - all items take from books will be cited in some way and the book will be placed on my links page.
