About Me

My photo
My name is Lesli Hyland. In my fifty one years on this earth, my home and my heart have been graced with the company of twenty four dogs. Many came to me as seniors. All of them taught me something and helped determine the course of my life. I became a dog trainer because of them. I met my friends because of them. My husband and I are are forever bonded by our mutual connection to them. Currently, as a Dog Walker I have access to other people's dogs and I am allowed to experience their unique personalities. The dogs make me a better person by forcing me to closely examine my motivation, my actions and my choices. Everything I do affects their behavior, safety and happiness. It is an awesome responsibility. The dogs keep me honest.

A Puppy's Plea

A Puppy's Plea

Will you teach me all about your world?
Translate your language into mine?
Will you help me to succeed 
and reward me when I try?

Can you laugh at my mistakes
and accept my imperfections?
When I try and somehow fail,
Can you adjust your expectations? 

Will you control me enough to keep me safe,
but give me freedom to explore?
Will I know that I am special?
Of your love will I be sure?

Can I run and bark and chew and chase?
Not always SIT and STAY.
Will your voice be music to my ears
and my name mean come and play?

Will I be the dog you dreamed of?
True companions, you and me.
Will you lead me through example?
Help me reach my destiny.
