What a fun article and entertaining article, Brian. And a great site.

Susan, thanks for the positive comment. Nice! I find positive comments tasty! You've made me want to write more blog posts about the Willamette Humane Society. Like Annie, you're a good human trainer also.

(Most women are, including my wife. After all, they have to handle male human animals throughout life -- a manageable, albeit difficult, job requiring the right "treats" to shape behavior.)

I just told Annie Ingersoll about this blog post. Had some questions for her.
Annie, your class yesterday stimulated a blog post about dog/human training.

Laurel and I enjoyed it a lot. My only question is: Why are dog treats mysteriously appearing when I empty the dishwasher and wipe down the sink after using it? Also, when I (occasionally) put a towel back neatly after using it?

Oh, and also… Why has Laurel started wearing a dog treat pouch inside the house?


What a great article. Entertaining and insightful. My dogs and I have been through classes at Willamette Humane Society with Annie and I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had. Not only did my dogs learn to be better behaved but I also really enjoyed the experience.
