I’ve been in love with dogs and animals since childhood, and I’ve always had animals around me.
It is the arrival of an adopted dog in a shelter that will trigger everything. This dog is called Roucky, a mix between German Shepherd and Alaskan Malamute , my «Alaskan Shepherd».
We begin training and Roucky makes progress, showing an incredible capacity for learning.
But I want to go further and the method used is not suitable. Someone talk to me about the clicker training method.
This is the revelation: Roucky loses all his inhibitions, he learns well, likes to work.
I decide to go further and we do our first 100% clicker summer camp at Catherine Collignon (Animalin). It is a complete questioning of the dog’s vision and how to train a dog.
I wish I had a second dog.
I choose the Australian shepherd.
Banshee joined the family in October 2006, then Beaver.
1 dog, 2 dogs, 3 dogs…
Some of them have passed, new ones arrived.
We’re staying small and that’s fine.
