About Me

My photo
My name is Lesli Hyland. In my forty seven years on this earth, my home and my heart have been graced with the company of twenty dogs. Many came to me as seniors. All of them taught me something and helped determine the course of my life. I am 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. As a dog trainer I have access to other people's dogs and I am allowed to share in their unique relationships. 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.

At the end of May my friend Kelly and I will be hittin' the road, headed for Indiana!  Kelly's new Collie puppy awaits us there!  Shane and Tawnie will be tagging along for the ride. 
Need to start making lists!
secure dog food containers...meds...water/bowls...sheets to keep dog fur off the hotel beds...treats...
crate for pup, collar, leash, toys, cleaning supplies, blankie...

Oh and I guess we'll need some stuff for us too!  :-)
