Tuesday Night Working Paws: Trainer Talks


Yooper Paws of Love and Cindy Campbell Dog Training are partnering together to bring you a new forum for community based conversations with other trainers.  It doesn't matter if you are a professional trainer or simply training your own dogs, this weekly Zoom chat is something we hope you will enjoy!

Each week we will choose a different topic and ask 3 questions to all the people attending.  You can choose to share your answer to the questions during the discussion or via the chat box.  You are welcome to be a part of the conversation or sit back and listen.

Here is a replay of last week's Trainer Talk: Do Words Matter?

The discussion for Tuesday, February 22nd will be Cooperative Care!

Working Paws Group

The Working Paws Group is FB group that I started to support anyone who has a dog that is trained to an advance level to do a specific job.  Many of the members have Owner Trained Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, or dogs training for other types of jobs.  We strive to make this group a SAFE group where all topics can be discussed openly!  We do not restrict topics of conversation, however we do restrict styles of conversations.  Friendly debates that present facts, educational resources and scientific data are allowed.  Bullying or rude comments is not allowed!  Request to join the Working Paws Group here:
