‘Tis the season of giving and I found a few gifts online in the form of awesome websites. The first is a dog training website chock full of phenomenal training information. It’s called Dogmantics. If I could snap my fingers and fast forward into the future I would love to provide a resource like this for horses.
Until then, I recall the words of a wise dog trainer trainer. She once told me that it’s as easy to train a mouse as it is a killer whale. In my heart of hearts, I know that if you were to train your your horse just like the examples in the Dogmantic videos, you’d get the same outstanding results.
The gift the Dogmantics website delivers is that feeling of anything is possible with your four-legged friends with paws.
I found another blog called Kindred Animality that has fabulous links to all sorts of training that makes everyone feel good.
I’ve added a few new links to the Worth Visiting column as well.
Again, I couldn’t keep these discoveries to myself. Sites like these are true gifts that keep on giving and promote force-free training that I’m hoping will become the new normal.
PS: If you’re in need of a tangible gifts, hoofprints.com is chock full of wonderful goodies. Check out one of my favorite gifts. It’s the Same Sh*t, Different Day mug. With humor, it serves to positively reinforce all the hours my horses, pitchfork, wheelbarrow and I spend creating a lovely compost pile.
