Elise Mac Adam, SFTD CPT, on how the grief of rehoming a dog led her to the School For The Dogs Professional Course

School For The Dogs Podcast - Dog Training & Animal Behavior with Annie Grossman  show

Summary: <p>Elise Mac Adam and Annie first met in 2002 when Annie wrote up Elise's engagement announcement for her column in <em>The New York Observer. </em>Both of them were terrier lovers, writers, and native Manhattanites: They became fast friends. When Annie and Kate first started School For The Dogs in 2011 and running classes out of Annie's Manhattan living room, Elise and her dogs were among their first clients. Elise, her sons, and her husband, have worked with half a dozen of School For The Dogs trainers over the last decade, with three of their dogs. She has, overall, clocked more sessions than any other single client. Eventually, she had to make the difficult decision to rehome one of her terriers. She and Annie discuss how rehoming a dog can feel like both a success and failure at the same time, and the silver lining of this difficult experience: It led her to decide to enroll in the School For The Dogs Professional Course. </p> <p>Apply to the Professional Course at <a href="http://schoolforthedogs.com/professionalcourse2022" target="_blank">http://schoolforthedogs.com/professionalcourse2022</a></p> <p>Next cohort begins August 31. </p> <p>Episodes featuring other graduates: </p> <p>https://www.schoolforthedogs.com/meet-our-trainer-anna-ostroff/</p> <p>https://www.schoolforthedogs.com/podcasts/episode-190-our-newest-sftd-certified-professional-trainer-ionelee-brogna-on-shock-collars-horses-schnauzers-trick-training-and-learning-empathy-by-selling-used-books/</p> <p>https://www.schoolforthedogs.com/podcasts/episode-93-school-for-the-dogs-trainer-erin-whelan-on-how-dog-training-changed-her-life/</p> <p>https://www.schoolforthedogs.com/podcasts/episode-111-school-for-the-dogs-trainer-em-beauprey-on-conformation-cats-bespoke-dog-walking-and-training-trainers/</p> <p><br></p> --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/dogs/message Support this podcast: <a href="https://anchor.fm/dogs/support" rel="payment">https://anchor.fm/dogs/support</a>
