Kristin - MUSINGSKristin’s Musings:

I met Trish years ago when I attended a dog training course she was leading. I found her to be delightful and an engaging public speaker. She is also one of the most outstanding dog trainers that I’ve ever witnessed. Her work with fear-aggressive dogs in particular is something to behold! I almost didn’t ask her the question of how she became a dog trainer, but something in me told me to ask. I’m glad I did (although it was hard to listen to). Some of us find our calling through unusual and sometimes painful circumstances, and she certainly did.
