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.

So...the WAIT at the door is a work in progress!  Lower expectations of Pogo as he is deaf and senile! :-P
Tucker and Cita are the least reliable at this point (big surprise!). Progress reports to follow.

Channeling images like this to remain calm...


  1. Very cool. That is sort of looks like how wait works over here. Sometimes they wait well and we let them out one at a time, other times we need to block them like you had to do with your leg.
